Making a post with a quote in it

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to figure out how to make that blue quote box show up in my posts. I am sure there is an easy way....can someone tell me how?

There are three ways:

 

1) When you are replying to a message you can click on the "quote" button and then delete the parts you don't want there.

 

2) When typing a response, you can select the text you want quoted and then click on the 'quote' icon - you know the menu above the text box? On the line with the B[old] I[talics] and U[nderline] buttons, there is a button between the one with a mountain and the # button. It will put "quote" tags around whatever you have selected.

 

3) You can cut and paste the text you want quoted and then put the word "quote" in [brackets ] in front of the text and /quote in brackets at the end of the text you want quoted.

You got it - hurrah!!

 

I remember the dispropotionate pleasure I felt when I was shown how to select text and make it a link - I was beaming!

 

[if you want to try it:

you select the text you want to have be a link and then click on the icon with the globe & link (4 buttons to the left of the quote button) and then enter the url you want... the button with the link X-ed out in red removes the link.

 

I'll do one here:
