    Replying to a thread or post - quoting

    Hi guys, as above, when replying to a thread or post, how do you include only the parts you want to quote from someone else's post please... I am obviously missing something.

    hi Paul, do you mean like above? All you have to do is go to the post you wish to comment on, look to the bottom right corner and click th "reply with quote" button. A reply box will pop up with the original post in quote marks, you can leave it whole or delete parts of it so only the relevant bits are left as I have done with yours. Then just type your reply below the quote and press reply.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers for that, it was the removing part of the quote that was troubling me... Many thanks.

    Just for accuracy and manners sake, please remember to use the .......... to delineate removed sections, lest the quoted post be taken out of context (like the above)
