    How do you quote a portion of someones post for a reply. I've tried cut and paste? Help.

    Once you've clicked the "quote" button, you can just put the flashing cursor inside the post that comes up and highlight and delete the portions of text you want to get rid of. In the absense of highlighting, if it's a small post for example you can just use the 'delete' or 'backspace' keys to get rid of the unwanted text.

    Just leave the portion you want to quote encased in between the {quote} and {/quote} stuff (using [ and ] instead of the { and } of course).

    It gets a bit trickier when you are quoting a post where someone has already quoted someone previously. But it still works on the same concept if you look closely at what comes up in the message box when you click 'quote'.

    Hope that helps, I don't know any technical lingo at all so that's what makes sense to me. [img]smile.gif[/img]
