  • HOW TO: Use the QUOTE function when posting

    The "QUOTE" function is a useful tool when you are responding to someone's post and you want to be specific to what they said.

    There are three ways you can use this function:
    • Quote someone's complete post
    • Quote a part of someone's post
    • Quote multiple posts within a thread


    Quoting someone's Complete Post
    (You would use this if you want to reference something that another person posted. It helps focus your response to that specific comment)

    Choose the post that you want to Quote:



    You will now see the post you want to quote


    You can now type what you want underneath the Quote...just make sure you don't delete any of the brackets and anything in between them.


    And there you have it...



    Quote a part of someone's post
    (You would use this if you want to pull something out of a large post that someone did. This is good if you want to respond to a specific part of their post)

    Choose the post that you want to Quote:


    Once you get to this point, you can modify by deleting anything that you don't want in the quote...just make sure that you keep the and anything in those brackets the way they are. You can change anything between the ] [ though.


    When you submit, you can see that it has been modified.


    Quote multiple posts within a thread
    (You would use this if you want to lump several posts in one of your posts. Works good for Thank you posts or just responding to a lot of posts in one.)

    This is where it gets tricky. You need to find the MultiQuote Icon...sometimes its a symbol with a plus sign. The trick is that you can click as many posts as you want but always remember that the last post that you want to quote, you need to click the Quote Button.



    Once you do that you will get this



    Just remember that you can use any combination of these to make your posts more affective.

    Good Luck,
