There is a [Quote] button on the top right of each post Beeech, click this on the post you wish to take the quote from.

Inside you will find the whole post made by the other person put within [quote="Beeech"] at the begining and the end [\quote]. Carefully leave them but erase all that is not require between them, eg just the part of the sentence you require


Then underneath write your own comments

Try this Beeech

Look for the persons post that you wish to take the quote from and on the top right of their post is a [quote] button.



It will show the person's quote. This is sandwiched between symbols [quote="presons name"] and [\Quote]



You can reduce the piece they have witten to suit but you must leave it starting with [quote="presons name"] and ending with [\Quote].

Underneath add what you wish to say about it.



Once you are happy press the [preview] buttton



And it will hopefully show the quote and your reply. Press the [send] button when happy

Two ways that I know of beechiepoo.

One is to have two 'pages' open, click on quote on both posts, then copy/paste one of them into the other reply.

Or: Click quote and then copy paste the quoted bit into 'word' or something like that, click the back button, then click on the 2nd quote reply, and copy/paste from word into that.
