:blush: :blush: :blush:

I appear to be the only person on here who doesn't know how to quote multiple members posts in my replies. Can someone please tell me how to do it??

Brooksie... feeling rather dumb :huh:

I just use the 'Quote Text' icon (seen below) after highlighting the part I want to multiquote...

I thought Brooksie meant quotes from different posts...

It works for both.

You just quote reply the first, then copy and paste the other, and then quote it.

I dont really think there is a specific 'multi quote' option, if I'm not mistaken.

This how I do it. I have 2 windows open of Internet explorer.(if you don't use this see the little house symbol? use that to add a 2nd home page. I have 1 at MSN and other at yahoo cos thats where I have emails) and enter your chosen site twice. you can then flick between each window looking at different posts in each window. this allows you to start writing a reply but still switch to another post to copy or read from it.

If I want to quote someone I hit reply in one window and start writing . at the point i want to quote I switch window, hit quote copy, switch back and paste it. I switch back and forth like this. I also do the same if I want to paste info. instead of having 2 windows open at OFL, I would open 1 at the other site and switch back and forth.this allows me to quote from multi post/other sites/or quotes from other sites. did I explain that clearly? hope so. ;)

there may be an easier way, I will wait to see :blush:

it is a reasonable question brooksie :)

just quote one of the people, then you can copy and past the second/3rd quote. highlight the entire quote and click the quote icon (top right). then highlight the name wrote" and click the B for bold.

Marcus you win for the easiest method. Due to my job I usually have 3-4 windows open at once so I'm use to that. As smart as I am, I never thought of that!! :blush:

Thanks all !!!

another easy method is... pick the latest post you want to quote by pressing the
quote button... then input your comment....

have you ever try to modify any of your post???? try to see how the quoted post
looks like and try to copy all the enclosure in it... that is the only things
needed... scroll down and highlight and pick the other comment you want to quote: just type the character needed for the poster and for his/her post....

the only concern on this is if the post of the person is not cover by the page when
you scroll down....
