"replying" correctly
« on: Sun, Mar 16, 2008, 08:46 AM »
Is this the semi-technical forum?
I want to reply to some posts left by several people.  I was hoping to do it all in one post.

Is there a way to copy the "quote" I want from the post, drop it into my reply, then go back & capture other "quotes" without losing my reply page?

When I've tried it in the past, I always lose what I already have in my reply and have to start over.
 :)

took me forever to figure that out :)
whenever you scroll down to the reply button, hold down the shift key at the same time as hitting reply, and the reply window will open in a new window, then you can switch back and forth.

also...
Code: [Select]
[quote="name here"][/quote]
to quote with a name, the code is the above (BBCodeXtra will do it for you automatically)

It was a rainy night in the big city. A hard rain. Hard enough to wash the scum off the streets. And I'm stuck in it without an umbrella. What a tool.

Just perfect, that's what you are.  
Don't let anybody tell you differently..I ask a question, I get an answer, all is good, I feel smart.
