This is a basic question. How would I quote somebody's post in a discussion?

When somebody's posted, their post has a little button saying "Quote" in the top right-hand corner. Click it and a reply box will load with the quote already there.

Alternatly, you can copy what they've written, and then add a post as usual, but paste in the text, highlight it all and click on the button in the reply box, next to "B I U" and all the other little buttons at the top. It's the one on the far left with " " and lots of lines inbetween :)
This will automatically put the right coding on either side. You have to make sure you highlight it though!

No problem! If you want to delete some of the quote you can, just go in and take away the bit you want to delete, but make sure it still says
[ quote ] at the start and [/ quote ] at the end :wink:
