I have tried multiple ways to quote someone's message in a recent post. I have selected text in the message I want to quote, I have used the +quote icon, I have used the -quote icon, I have used the inverted commas icon, I have used regular html to quote, I am failing miserably ! Please help with instructions !

Select text from posters comment then hit “reply” not “quote”....<....>
Hope this makes sense.
Your instructions did indeed make sense - though the logic of why hit 'reply' to quote instead of 'quote' does not make sense to me :rolleyes: Many thanks Gordo !

Ummm - I wonder how one quotes from mutiple different posts ? Best not go there lol

Simply repeat the process. Go back to how ever many previous posts you want to select text from, one at a time, then select / reply over and over again.

The quoted selected text will be copied to your edit window usuallly where the cursor was last positioned. If not where you wanted it then just copy / paste to where you want it amongst your text.

You can experiment then click on PREVIEW at the bottom to see the outcome. When happy, then post reply. :)

PS: great to see an increase in forum traffic.

If you hit reply, as I did here, the complete message is quoted in your reply.
