Quotes??

This may sound dumb but I can't find the button to quote people when responding here. How do I quote someone in this forum?

I tried that but every thread on the forum has the word "quote" in it so it didn't help.

when you hit post reply there is a bunch of lil pics above where type one of them is a little box between the mountain and the # click on that and then paste what you want quoted between the brackets

just type the word quote inside of the brackets and make sure you use the slash symbol inside the brackets but before the word quote in the second set.

If that makes any sense at all.

Nonetheless, a quote button would make these forums much more modern feeling.

Yeah, right....

Then we would shortly be back to where folks would quote an entire post, just to add, "+1." :barf:

Which is why we removed it in the first place. So go read this post and learn how to use it properly.
