1. Select the posts to be quoted by clicking on the "Multi-Quote This Message" button (the one with the plus sign on the right side of the "quote" button)

2. Click on the "quote" button in any of the selected posts.

Thanks! Never could figure this out. Worked perfectly.

Is it possible to quote just selected content from a post? I mean, first you select a sentence in a post, then you press a button to quote it instead of quoting the entire post? Was this feature suggested before - any thread?

Also, most forums disallow in Rules excessive quoting, where large posts are fully copied to one's reply instead of just select small portions. It makes long threads very difficult to read. Was there a suggestion to add this to RFD Rules - any thread?

Yes, just delete the part of the quote that you don't want...

Excessive quoting? First time I've heard that in 20+ years of hanging around various forums

How do you do the opposite? Instead of quoting multiple posts, how do you quote one post multiple times? That is, reply to one post, but piece by piece. Or can this only be done on the desktop version of the site?

LOL, cmon now... It's all basic html coding. Every code has an ON switch and OFF switch.

Google search for lists of html commands.

For quoting simply use [ quote ]abcde[ /quote ] where abcde is the text you want to place in quotes. Quote begins the command and slash /quote ends the command.

So "Jack and Jill ran up the hill" becomes
"Jack and Jill ran up the hill"
You place your own response above or below. You do this multiple times to break up someone's post and make response(s).

Ca peche??
