How do you quote?

How do I quote text here. Usually on other forums there is a quote button on everyones post. I don't see anything like that here.

There's a reason that button isn't there and an example appears above.

The easiest way to do it is to select only the part of the post you are responding to and paste it into the text box. Remember: It is not necessary to quote the entire post that appears just above yours.

Then, highlight the text you want to quote and hit the little icon above the text window that looks like this:

That will put the quote tags around the selected text.

Hope this helps.

oK thanks bluesman. That's what I was doing but wasn't sure if I was going the long way around the barn.

I was reading a thread in the General Handguns forum which has a link to another vB forum that does allow the "Reply with quote" feechur. Take a look at the page and pay close attention to the quoting going on as opposed to the text of the posts. Then you will realize why we have disabled that feechur. The same was happening here at TFL. People simply do not take the time to edit out the unecessary verbage from a quote. The cost in disk space alone makes it a bad feature when the text from a long post is stored multiple times.

Don't ask--I haven't gotten enough sleep lately.

Oh yeah--that's why I posted this. Here's how you get the effect above.
