Hello all

I was wondering how you guys are able to get that quote stuff from another person's previous statement? I tryed copying and pasting but it does not come out in that offical blue colour on the right side of the page.

In the right corner find a " or hit the quote button, the code behind is in PHP & it should work.

edited the post, usually I'm more familar with a quote being in black.

Anyways as mentioned type [quote] place the sentence & type {/quote} but do no't use {}, make sure you use [] However there is another way click the quote button & you should get the syntax.

Rusty:

Assuming that you want to make comments after various parts of a previous post, I think the easiest way is this:

1) Cut and paste the particular item you want to quote from a previous message.

2) Now that you have the desired item in your reply message, use your mouse to highlight that text ...... (it should look like a blue coloured bar with the text in white).

3) While that text remains highlighted, move your mouse to left-click the button that says "Quote".......... it will automatically do all the work to create the magic looking quote.

Try and experiment.......you can use the "Preview" function (the button at the bottom of the screen) to see the cause and effect of what you try. Your message won't appear until you click the submit button.

Hope that helps.

Simply enter the quote tags manually. For instance,

(quote="That guy")Sensisible point(/quote)
I agree!
(quote="That other guy")Annoying pedantry(/quote)
Troll...

Replace () with [] , and it looks like this:

That guy wrote:
Sensisible point

I agree!
That other guy wrote:
Annoying pedantry

Troll...
