When quote boxes within boxes, within boxes...... are repeated and repeated, they take up more and more space on the server's hard disk. Please only keep the portion of the quote you're responding to and delete the rest.
Code:
As long as you open a quote box with [quote] and end it with [/quote]
it will appear properly.

See, when using the 'quoted' part of the above text in this posting, it will appear like this:

Yes Leo, a very good tip/suggestion. And besides the problem of taking up space on the server, I actually bypass posts/threads like that, because it seems like too much clutter, and interferes with my being able to follow the discussion.

How do you post several clips from different previous threads? Or how do you break one large quote down in small chunks to which I can give replies on the same post?

Many thanks

Hi Kali

Welcome to the forum.

When you respond to a post by clicking on the 'quote' button in the top right corner the whole posting will be quoted.

When you do that you will get an editable text box where you can experiment a bit. Also above the text box you will see some buttons to play with. You can use the 'preview' button under that box to see how you're doing.

Basically the code for quotes looks like this:


Code:
[quote="Kali"]text [/quote]


And will appear as:
