    I have noticed that other posters are able to insert a direct quote from another post directly into their reply--they are usually bolded text with a line above and below the quote. I was trying to play with the "quote" button on the new thread screen, but I'm not sure what I'm doing. Thanks for any help!

    You have to click the button in the bottom right corner of their post that says "quote". It'll bring up a reply window with the whole post as the quote already there. Then u can delete what u dont want there, or whatever.

    I hope that was helpful. I just figured that out, myself, about 2 weeks ago.

    Or you can just make the tags, and put some of what they said. To do that, click on Quote will making the post, it is under the COLOR thing.
