    Hi Fisher -

    It's very simple. On the post to which you wish to reply, click the quotation marks. A reply window will open with the entire message quoted. Then you can delete any of the remarks you wish and leave just the meat of the message to which you wish to reply. Once you see the code automatically written, you'll begin to catch on.

    tfisher, if you quote someone else's post with a quote in, you'll also see how it's coded.

    And the Preview Post button is very useful for seeing whether the post came out like you wanted it, before you post it.

    Basically the quote coding is
    {quote}text you are quoting{/quote}

    but use square brackets instead of curly ones [​IMG]
