    Question How do I use the "quote" button....

    I have tried before to quote someone in my reply and I can't get it working right, I know I'm doing something wrong. Could someone tell me how to do this? Told you I don't know much about computers!!

    To quote you, all I did was hit the "quote button", and it shows in my reply so I can type here.

    Try it

    Ok, so I hit the quote button in YOUR post. Yeah!!!!

    See the first reply I made, what is that? I went into post reply and hit quote and a box came up to type in?

    What if you only want to quote a part of someone's post,,,like one line?

    when you click "quote" and want to edit it, just go into what is being quoted and edit what you want...be sure to keep the [Quote] and [ /QUOTE] in there.

    Make sense?

    Try quoting me and edit it so it will say something different.

    Yes, sorry I wasn't more clear about that...you hit the 'quote' button on the person's post that you wish to quote.

    I'm not sure how you got that first thing you said...
