Quotes on top Can't Post

OK here's another one - and I actually tried to figure this one out myself before posting! Mad

When you reply to a post by quoting it, how do you type your message under the quote? I've seen others do it that way, but my quote attempt had me writing on top of the quote box.....

In the advanced editor your cursor will sit at the end of the bottom quote line, just hit return and start typing. Smile

You can also... [In reply to] Can't Post

...cut and paste only the part you want to quote, like this:

When you reply to a post by quoting it, how do you type your message under the quote?



...in the Avanced Editor, by pasting the part you want to quote, highlighting it, then hitting the quote button in the Advanced Editor toolbar.

This is also in the FAQ *cough*: item 2.23 Tongue

Re: You can also... [In reply to] Can't Post

That FAQ would be much more user-friendly if the topics at the top of the page actually linked to the relevant answer below.

Also - is it possible to code something into the board that makes it so that quotes include the quoted posters name? On a very long thread, quoting will be almost irrelevant since a third party will have no clue as to whom a quoter is quoting. Crazy

The FAQ is 'under construction' [In reply to] Can't Post

I figured it's going to change over the next few weeks until things settle in, and it's a tadge finicky to edit. So, I'll not add links until it's in a more final form.

Use those buttons on your computer to scroll, man! TongueSly

Will make a note of the quotes thingie and look into it when we're a little less harried. Crazy

Thanks for the Feedback.

Ehhh on a long thread, when you have a quote of a quote of a quote of a quote, it's always nice to be able to see at a glance the progression of the discussion.
