    Are talking about using quotes from other posts, then supplying your answer?

    Particularly on a thread I started so I can respond to all those who responded to my thread. I am nocturnal & it is early in the morning here. Am I making sense?

    Sometimes if the post are multiple that you want to answer too, it is best to open the post twice. In other words, you will launch SMF twice and go to the tread you want to work on. You can then copy the post you want to answer from one from one SMF and paste it into the other. Now to get the post shown as a quote, you must type {quote=name of person your quoting} Then paste text here.

    You finish the quote with {/quote}

    Instead of using the {} parameters though, you use the [] ones. Had to use the others so you could see how it looks in html.

    There is at the bottom of each post there are 3 buttons

    The first one is to quote just that message the 2nd is to add that message to a list of quoted messages so that you can respond to each in one post the other is the Quick reply button.. .

    Once you have selected all the messages you want to quote hit the POST REPLY button on the bottom left.

    Like so then you can add comments below each quoted message

    And so on

    and so forth
