    I've been trying to figure out how all of you put a quote from another post in with your post and haven't got it yet. Its the quote that is dark colored that one is responding to or answering about. Any tips? Thanks.

    Hit the "quote" button at the bottom of the post you're wanting to quote.

    You still hit quote, then you highlight and delete what you don't want quoted.
    If you want to quote and respond to different things, hit quote. At the end of the sentence that you want in that quote you type [/quote] Then at the beginning of the next thing you want quoted type

    You would need to select and delete the lines that you do not want in the quote.

    (quote=sagegirl)pick just a selected line(/quote)

    Imagine the above line with [] instead of ().

    You can also just use (quote) Then copy paste here the lines you want (/quote)

    Again use [] instead of ().

    If you want the quote to say it was from boobhead bob you would use:

    (quote=boobhead bob) quote something here (/quote)

    Was it? I didn't realize you were already responding. I was always taught never to interrupt a lovely lady when she is speaking, I never would have presumed to post over yours!
