    A Little Help For The "Technically-Challenged"?

    Sheepishly looking for a little assistance.
    From any who would be so kind.....

    Here's my question:
    Could someone show me how to pull down a BRIEF QUOTE from someone's message, as opposed to the entire post? I'm not seeing the way to get this done yet.

    My thanks in advance.

    Click the Quote button, then cut out the parts you don't want in between the {quote} and {/quote} tags.

    (Those tags really use [ ] instead of { }, but if I put a real tag in the straight ones, they will disappear from the post.)

    Give it a try, Shoe Guy!

    Hey Shoeman!

    what you do is highlight and copy the text, then on your reply, pick [quote] (under the vb code section above your reply text box) and then paste it in...

    I just learned this evening how to do it, also...

    Den Mom!! Aren't you always looking out for me?
    Kim!! Aren't you the sweetest?

    I will save your instructions and use them when next needed.
    Bear with me. I'll take off the training wheels eventually.

    So...In case it's not clear. There are two ways. Bash's way, and Kim's way.
