    Hi I am new here and am trying to figure things out. One thing that I seem to have a problem with is quoting previous posts, when others do it they come out in neat boxes, all I get is the text with the word QUOTE after it. Other than that it is good to be here and I hope that my time is beneficial to all concerned

    If you look in the quick reply section there is a little yellow box with lines across and a tail. You can and should include quotes in your replies by clicking on that.

    When you are responding directly to a post you can and should click on the quote box that is under each and every post.

    When you click on the quote button it puts BBEdit quote tags [ QUOTE -] [ /QUOTE -] in your posting. Just make sure the quoted material is in between the BBEdit tags.
    [ QUOTE=lincoln -]

    Hope you figure out the quoting as it is easy [-quote][/quote-] {minus the dashes} and welcome here. Post away and have fun and it's a great site to discuss all that vexes us....

    Hat is tipped towards you...

    Things are going ok little nervous because I have some strong opinions about things but I guess that is what this and other boards are for. I have to say that the people who have taken the time to help me out on this thread have given me a good feeling about all of this. Probably will take me a while to hit my stride, but that is a good thing i guess.
