HOW TO . . . quote text in your posts

Post by Katiedot on Sat Sep 03 2011, 09:05

Any text from another site should really go inside quote to make it clear you're quoting something else and not posting your opinions.

The easiest way to do this is simply to type [quote] at the beginning of whatever you're quoting:



Begin the article by using the quote instruction and you must end it by using /quote instruction. If you randomly thow in quote or /quote in the middle of the text, the computer won't know what to do!

Please remember that all instructions to the computer must go inside square parentheses: [ or ] as in my example above. It won't work if you use the wrong shape parenthesis.

There is another way to quote text which is by using the 'quote' button. You'll find this in another screen, so to get to that screen, you either need to click on the 'post reply' button near the top of your screen:



OR you can click on the 'preview' button at the bottom of your quick reply box:



When you've done that, you'll get a much longer toolbar just above your reply box. Highlight the text you want to quote and when you're sure it's all highlighted, click on the 'quote' button:



The computer will automatically put the text you highlighted inside quotes for you.
