    Bingo.

    Hit reply with quote, then edit the quote, then hit go advanced and the edited quote will be highlighted as above.

    You're almost there :cool: ~ you just need to keep the quote info in place.


    Note ~ The red asterisks [*] below are there to make the quote wrap visible.

    [*QUOTE=blacktimberwolf;973868] trying again [*/QUOTE]

    In order to quote your post within mine the system needs to know that it's going to be putting a quote into the post.
    The [*QUOTE=blacktimberwolf;973868*] shows the system that what follows is going to be a quote, who it's going to be quoting and which post it's a quote from. The [*/QUOTE*] section at the end tells the system that any information following it is outside of the quote you wish to make.

    Thanks guys, I couldn't have done it without you :)

    Now that's sorted, Can anyone tell me how you take selected parts from several posts when replying i.e. have 2,3,4 quotes from different posts on a single reply.......:wow1:



    :thankyou:

    Click on the "Multi-quote This Message" button for each post you which to copy, when you get to the last one hit the "Reply With Quote" button, that'll enter every post you've selected with the multiquote

    Any text you want to remove from any quote just do it within the {Quote=name] & [/Quote} marks
