How do I put a quote inside of another quote?

When posting replies, sometimes it would be more understandable if I could put one quote inside of another. Can/how do I do this????
Gary

If you want to quote a certain person, all you have to do is click the quote button on the bottom right of their post. As for a quote inside a quote, I don't know that one either. Maybe someone else will answer that one.

I want to know how to do the one that you have on your message that says - "Tenneva Jordan once said:"

How did you add that? Is it called a signature?

yes, it's a signature. Just go and click on user cp up on the blue ribbon at the top of this page. At the left, click on edit signature. Type in what you want it to say and hit save. That's it

quotes within quotes

texasgirl -

you need to understand a little about vB code, which is what this forum uses.

Here is an example of a quote within a quote.

and here is the vB code that makes it look that way (what you would see in the reply box before you posted it.)

[QUOTE=texasgirl]If you want to quote a certain person, all you have to do is click the quote button on the bottom right of their post. As for a quote inside a quote, I don't know that one either.

Notice the [QUOTE=texasgirl] in the beginning - that starts the texasgirl quote .

Notice the [QUOTE=Sunflower] - that starts the 2nd Sunflower quote, nested inside the texasgirl quote.

Notice the [/QUOTE]Here's some more stuff from texasgirl[/QUOTE] at the end.

> The first [/QUOTE] ends the quote from Sunflower

> The text Here's some more stuff from texasgirl is continued as part of the texasgirl quote

> The last [/QUOTE] ends the quote from texasgirl
does this help - or just make you more confused?
