    I tried to find this in the resource area but couldn't. Then I tried to 'reply to with a quote' and it didn't do what I thought it would.
    Can anyone explain how I can reply using a quote from a previous post?
    Thanks

    Put QUOTE inside SQUARE brackets at the beginning of the quote and /QUOTE inside SQUARE brackets at the end. They have to be typed EXACTLY as I've typed them. If you do reply with quote, make sure you do not delete any part of either of these things. One little thing and it will mess up the WHOLE thing.

    If you click on that icon, it puts the quote strings in for you, and you just put your text in between...
    [ QUOTE] [ /QUOTE] (I added spaces so you can see what the quote button does)
    .............^............... your text goes where the ^ points to.
