I see it done, but I don't know how to do it. I want to know.
TIA.
I'll reply with a Multi Quote because I now can.

This the way I do it too.

Be sure to leave the stuff between these things [...]

You can change the color with the A button up top ^

But sometimes that's half the fun.

Quote or Multi quote the posts you want to include all or part of.

Then it's just a case of cutting and pasting with additional quote tags to make specific responses to different comments within a quoted post.

So as long as I insert this [Quote] between any combination of words, I will have a quote box above each response?
I am going to try it and see.

I will try this right here in this thread so as to not mess up the rest of the forum.

[/QUOTE]Yes I'm a computer dummy and I like it that way. Please keep it simple. [/QUOTE]

[/QUOTE]But I would like to use the feature when I click a thread that has many points by different posters I'd like to respond to. [/QUOTE]

Okay heres an attempt by wrapping the section I want with "Quote" tags.

It does not work by pasting and wrapping [Quote) around the text I wanted.
Maybe my attempt above will give someone the information they need and to see what I am asking to do.
I can quote people all day long and i can multiquote people all day long. I want to be able to quote multiple times within one post I am replying to.

I'm too much of a computer dummy to give you the answer but I don't mess with the things between the [...] thingies.

I leave that be and delete the text I want to get rid of.

Good luck figuring this modern technology out my friend.

Roll_Bones, you have so many tags (stuff in square brackets) in that last post, that it wouldn't format properly when I tried to quote it.

If you look carefully at the stuff you have in square brackets, you will see that you have used "/quote" at both the beginning of the quote and at the end. You have to use "quote" at the beginning and "/quote" at the end. The slash mark tells the software where the quote ends. Slash marks are used with most tags to indicate the end.

I just realized that there is another way to get a quote box. At the top of the edit box there are buttons for making a link, inserting a link and other stuff. One of them looks like a square dialogue bubble, like in comics. That's for quotes. If you highlight the stuff you want quoted and then click it, it will put those tags for you.

Another try coming up. Sure hate to practice on a live forum.
