Hello All,
I am having problems transferring other members posts
into my post. I can press the Quote button and transfer all the post
OK. But if I only want to use one paragraph,I end up with their whole
post.Also how do you use the - and + quote button.I had a look at the
tutorial, and can't seem to find.Any help would be appreciated. :thumbsup:

DSTM.

Just highlight, and delete, the part of the post you don't want to use.

For using the Multi-quote button:
At the bottom of each post, you'll see a blue button that says +MQUOTE.
When you click that button it will change to a red button, that says -MQUOTE.
For every post you want to quote, click the +MQUOTE button, changing it to the -MQUOTE button.
When you have the ones you want to quote selected, click the ADDREPLY button.
This will bring you to the page where you compose your replies to posts.
You'll see all the posts you selected for quoting, already entered.
Just delete the part of the post that you don't want to quote.
Add your replies underneath the quote you're replying to.
When done, click the Add Reply button.

Be careful when deleting parts of the quoted text, to not delete the quote tags.

You're quite welcome, DSTM.
Glad I could help.

Since you mentioned, it wasn't covered how to do multiple quotes, I just added a "how-to" to the New User Orientation forum, with images.
How To Reply To A Topic, Using Multiple Quotes

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
