Quoting

Postby JasonJD48 » 05 Feb 2015 16:30

Is there a way to add multi-quoting, a lot of other php based boards have it, or do we have it and I'm just missing it?

Indeed there is!

If ever you'd like to see how it's done, click on the quote button (upper R/H) & peruse the structure.
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

Thanks, I didn't mean nesting quotes though. I meant quoting multiple posts on the same topic that aren't necessarily quoting each other.

Hey, I really agree with you!

I can't see Paul doing something like that!

Obviously I can cut and paste to do that, but a lot of forums have a 'multi-quote' button that I can hit for each post I want to quote and then reply to the topic when I'm ready.

Can you explain how? I feel dense but when I hit the 'Quote' button it brings me automatically to reply and I see no other button than the report button.

Click on the quote button on the first post you want to quote.

Then, quote more posts by clicking the quote button in the "TOPIC REVIEW:QUOTING" section below VVVVVVV

I didn't know how to do it either until today, I only knew that we could.
