Hey,

As quoting someons text is very common in a forum, how do I use the Multi-Quote button? I had a search around the forums but couldn't find anything. I know how to use the normal quote button, but it's pretty annoying when you want to quote a few things in seperate quote boxes.

If anyone knows what I'm on about and knows how to use it, please share it with me.

Thanks,

-Ben

I just found if I click the Multi-quote button on each response in a thread then click the actual quote button, it will bring up all the quoted messages in the reply box.

So never mind.

Thanks,

When looking at a thread that has multiple replies, click the + QUOTE button on each post you want to quote. When you're done, click "Post Reply" at the bottom-left. This will quote each one of the posts you selected.

If you want to break a quote down into multiple pieces, I'm afraid you'll have to do that manually, encapsulating each piece of the quote in <QUOTE> </QUOTE> tags (substitute the <> with []).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
QUOTE Thanks
