Hello Mods -

When quoting a response in a thread, is there a quote button hiding somewhere near the Post Reply tab that I'm missing?

I know that I can hit Post Reply, drop down to Topic Review, copy/paste the text to the message box and click the Wrap[Quote] tags around selected text button....

Just looking for an easier way? :)

Thanks -

Jonathan

That's the easy way, Jonathan. :)

We've removed the Quote All button from our system due to abuse. :(

So now we can claim to have saved you from becoming an abuser, too. :D

I can't figure out how you get it to say, "Originally posted by ..." at the beginning of the post. Can you tell me how to do that?

Make it even more proper, Louis, and give your quote attribution by modifying the first [quote] box, adding an = sign after the word quote and typing in the name of the person you're quoting. Look like this: [quote=CX], [quote=MudGuy], etc.

[Edit]

And that answers Dan's question, too. :)

whats funny is that the quote button shows up on my PDA but not on my home computer.
