Click on the Reply button. You can also type in the text you want to quote in between '[quote]' and '[\quote]' tags. Click on the Reply button and look at the quoted text to see an example.

Click on the Reply button. You can also type in the text you want to quote in between '
Quote:' and '[\quote]' tags. Click on the Reply button and look at the quoted text to see an example.

You can also click on the button in between the reply and report buttons and multi quote.

If you are going to do it manually, be sure the slash is facing right like this, / to look like this [/quote]

Sully, thanks for the tip on the multi-post. I did not know that.

Here's how I do it:

A) Click on the 'Quote' button (it will change from green to red)
B) Hit 'Reply'

You'll get a reply box with the quote included.

Yep, I see now that hitting 'Reply' from the buttons at the bottom of the post in question is enough to open up a dialog with the quote.

Thanks. Smile

Quoting on my iPhone is pretty easy. On my Mac I'll have to go home and try what you guys are saying.
