How do I you quote more than one person in a single post?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
If I hit the quote button by a certain post, I can then quote that person, but I can't go back and quote anyone else in that same post. I have seen others do it, bit I can not figure it out.

Thanks!

Hi, you use the quote button in the edit box. I think you have to go advance if your using quick reply.

Here's what I do, I hit "quote" for the first person. For the next person, I just type in [ QUOTE = whatever his/her name is ] and then cut and paste their words and follow it with [ / QUOTE ] (leave out the spaces).

That's what I do but I was hoping there was an easier way. Maybe there isn't!

Heck, I'm even lazier than typiung out the "quote" I copy paste and click the quote box in the post. Or I go back and edit my post if I see osmething later or have already posted to get more than one quote in

Namaste, Tara

You have to hit post reply. Then you select your quote, right click, and selcet copy. Then up top there is a quote bubble in your toolbar. Click that. It'll pop up the word quote twice with your cursor between the two. Paste there.

Right click on the phrase you want.

See?

I copy by highlighting the text I want to copy and hit "Ctrl C" (control and C at the same time) and then put my cursor where I want to paste the text and hit "Ctrl V."

OK, I'm gonna try this. It's something I've wondered about. Here goes.

I was about to say it delights me there are less computer-savvy people out there than I am, but maybe I should think twice before I speak (write) - since I still have not gotten this right.

I do know how to go into one person's post and quote it - beyond that, my friends, I am afraid I am clueless.

Quoting myself just for fun - heh heh.

[CODE][You have to hit post reply. Then you select your quote, right click, and selcet copy. Then up top there is a quote bubble in your toolbar. Click that. It'll pop up the word quote twice with your cursor between the two. Paste there.

/CODE]

I think I got it! Thanks so much! I am as pleased as punch.

Edited to add - - not quite, alas, but I will keep trying.
