now, I have been a member for a while and it has got me stumped.

How do you quote with the posters details at the top of a quote?

When I do it, I am just getting the body of the quoted post iykwim.

How?  Please?

I clicked quote at the bottom of your post and then add reply at the base of the tread. I'm still hit and miss when removing the parts of the post that I'm not replying to though lol

Just hit reply directly under their post.

How do you do it? I still haven't worked out how to do multiple quotes in one post....


Rather than using the reply button, hit the quote button on the bottom of each post you want to quote and then use the add reply button.

I do this too. You can also quote multiple people if you hit quote and the bottom of each post and then reply at the end of the thread

Just highlight the part you don't want by dragging the mouse over it, holding down the left mouse button. Then press CTRL and X to cut that text.

How do people quote a post that is quoting another post, but keep the original post quoted within the entire quote when replying?
