Copy and paste the text you want to quote and then highlight the text and click the "quote" button in the toolbar above (looks like a little dialog bubble from a cartoon). That will put QUOTE tags around the text.

Or highlight the portion you want quote, copy it. they Type [ quote]hit paste here[ / quote]

Leave out the spaces I put in, and it will look like this
Quote:
hit paste here
As a side note, if you replace the word QUOTE with IMG, and where you pasted statement, put a link to a picture and you'll have a picture in your post.

Works with most other fourms also.

They had to show me how to copy something and also use the spellchecker.
