    How do you "quote" another message in your reply?

    I am going to quote from this paragraph in the reply below.

    "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"

    In order to quote it I will start the reply then when I am ready to quote it go up to the vB Code area and click Quote. I will copy what I want to quote an insert it after the vB code. I then will click on the "close all tags" button to the right if the vB codes

    I then will hit the return key and make my statement.

    Check in the post below to see how it looks, then try it yourself in the "Test Forum" (thats why its there!)

    "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
    Don't forget to hit the close all tags button! This should have worked but I need to post it to see!

    Do some experimenting and have fun!

    Harry,

    If you want to quote a whole post in the same thread, you can also click on the "Quote" button on the right just below the post you wish to quote in your reply.

    That's how I quoted your original post in this reply. You can just highlight and delete parts if I don't want the whole thing to show up in your reply; just be sure not to delete the [QUOTE] tags if you do.

    Pardon me for jumping in but you can also hit the quote button at the bottom of the post, and the entire post is quoted. You can then delete anything you want between the tags and drk still gets recognized for the quote...as I have done in this post.This is particularly usefull when you want to respond to one sentence in a long post.
