I have always wondered how people quote so many quote in one reply??

I have seen the icon on the bottom right but I still can't figure it out :sad:
I tired yesterday but failed.

Can someone guide me on how to do this??

You do it in a series of cut and pastes.

Go to the first post you want to quote. Click on Quote. When in the reply dialogue box, "copy" the quote including the [quote] [ /quote] (not sure how you do it in Vista, I either right click to get a menu or use my browser's edit function). Either click on back or just close the reply dialogue box. Go to the next post you want to quote, click on Quote. In the reply dialogue box, the 2nd quote is already visible. Put your cursor before the 2nd quote [Quote] thingy (I like to put a line between the two by hitting enter) and "paste" (again, I'm not sure how Vista works but I have to either right click or use my browser Edit function) your first quote in place. And so on and so on.

This is just a test for the new multiquote feature

There is also the new multiquote feature, that we've had trouble with in the past...but seems to be working now. We wanted to test it with some new code we'll be adding soon but since this thread came up, here goes:

The icon at the bottom right of the reply box (attached here at the very bottom of this post) is the multi-quote button. If you click on more than one of those icons (ie one from member a, one from member b etc.) and THEN click the post reply button, you can quote multiple people.

As a test I did it in this very post with the quoted posts below my text here.

Hope that helps,

Marko
