    How to quote posts in replies.

    When replying to a post, there is a button in the lower right corner just below the post that says "Reply With Quote." When you click that, you will see somthing like this:

    [quote=Fred]
    Hey there Sam!

    You are a jerk.

    I guess you are glad you can edit anything you like when you respond to my post, eh?

    Have a nice day,

    Fred.
    [/quote]



    You then could delete any part of Fred's comment that you didn't want to reply to, and type your response below the "quote" tag between square brackets:

    [quote=Fred]
    Hey there Sam!

    You are a XXX.

    I guess you are glad you can edit anything you like when you respond to my post, eh?

    Have a nice day,

    Fred.
    [/quote]

    Hi Fred,

    I exed out your rotten insult.

    Have a nice day.

    Sam

    And when you hit "Submit Post" this is what you would see this which I have placed between the lines:

    ==================================

    You can have quotes within quotes as much as you like, though it's rarely a good idea to have more than two. For example, is Fred wanted to reply to Sam and include his original post, then he would write this in the edit box:


    [quote=Sam]
    [quote=Fred]
    Hey there Sam!

    You are a XXX.

    Fred.
    [/quote]

    Sam
    [/quote]
    Hey there Sam,

    This is my last comment, you jerk!

    Love,

    Fred


    Which would look like this when posted:

    If anyone has any questions, don't be shy! I can assure you, other more shy members will have the same questions.
