How do I use the "quote" feature?

I've checked my profile and everything I can think of but I can't figure out how to use the "quote" feature - can someone help? Thanks.

Paste it into your post,,,
Select the text again,,,
Click the "Wrap {Quote} tags around selected text" icon (between the image icon and the # sign)

Like this?

I didn't know how to use the quote feature myself and have been putting " " around stuff I quoted. This will make things easier.

If you want to get fancy, and add the name of the member you're quoting to the text, do the following:

Select the text you want to quote, and after clicking the quote button, do the following to the first "[.QUOTE]" box:

Sample text:

[.QUOTE]I own a 1911.[./QUOTE]

Modified version

[.QUOTE=That'll Do] I own a 1911.[./QUOTE]

Basically, you add an equal sign, and the name you want to display. (The text does not need to be bold, I just did that for clarity). Note: Don't add a period in the bracketed text, I'm only doing that so you can see what to add.

Here's what it looks like when done:

Quote:
I own a 1911.

Modified version

All of this is covered in this sticky thread: http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=323215

As Don pointed out, we have a Site Questions forum (where we are now).

Testing of any feature should be done in the Software Test forum.
