Rellascout - Even I don't know what you just said.

ranburr - Copy the text you wish to quote to your clipboard in the usual manner. Paste that text in your reply window and highlight it. Then press the quote button () and the quote tags will be added to the beginning and ending of the text (you can also type in the tags manually).

To attribute the quote to someone in particular like I did above, add "=username" to the first quote tag. It will look a little something like this: [QUOTE=rellascout]Text to be quoted.[/QUOTE]

Lieut96, you were real close. When typing, it would look like this:

[quote=rellascout]Text to be quoted[/quote][/quote]

Which would end up looking like this:

Why don't they just add a quote button like most forums do?

Because people have the annoying habit of quoting the entire post just above theirs and then adding just one or two words of comment.
