Can you tell me, please, how to use the "quote" button?  I've seen a few posts with a box containing a quote from an earlier entry.  I'd like to know how to use that feature.


Patty,

First, find the section of whatever post you want to quote. Highlight the section, click your right mouse button, and use the 'copy" command. Then "paste" it into your post. Highlight it again, the click the quote function at the top of the reply box toolbar (the button with two quote marks) That should put the box around it.

BTW, I'm told that if you're using Firefox, the copy/paste function may not work. The developers of the board are supposed to be working on that.

I'me not crazy about the quote function myself, and I've actually just started pasting the section I'm replying to and making it a different color or bolding it to set it apart from my reply. Hope his makes sense. If not let me know and I'll try again ;)
