    QQQ (Quick Quoting Question)

    Post by Dogwelder on Mon Jun 24, 2013 12:27 pm

    Can someone tell me how I quote multiple people in a thread? When I click on the "quote" beneath someone's post, it instantly takes me to the "write a post" page, and although the post I quoted is present in the text box, I'm unable to add any other quotes to my post.

    Thanks in advance.

    When you are writing a reply, click 'preview' to open the text editor.

    On the top row, 5th from the right is an icon that looks like a speech bubble. Click this to add a quote, you can choose whether to name an author then just copy/paste what you want to quote.

    The easiest way I can suggest is to have multiple tabs open.

    So, quote the first person you want to quote which will bring you to the post reply box you'll be making. Then, with another tab, hit quote for the next person. When that brings you to post your reply, cut that quote and paste it into the first reply box. Keep going until you have all the posts.

    Just in case you don't know this already too, but it will be easier if you click the "switch editor mode" button (far right button) which will allow you to post outside of the quote box.

    I think I might be more confusing than helpful though

    I put my post in another tab, just use quote, copy/paste it into my post tab then do that again for the other quotes.

    There's no actual function for multiple quotes now

    I'm on the forums for the first time since posting this "multiple quotes" question, so I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who replied with answers. Much appreciated.
