    Just hit "quote" then delete what you don't want in your response.

    If you want to break their quote up into smaller parts where you want to address each part, each section needs to have a [ quote] text [ /quote] surrounding it but without the spaces between the first bracket and the next character.

    JK,

    When you click on "quote", you won't see a blue box. Just the text with the tags around it.

    Here.....I just clicked "quote" on your post. Here is what I am seeing.



    [quot=Jedi Knight;1420911]Just hit "quote" then delete what you don't want in your response.

    well I tried but don't see the blue box surrounding the quote[/quot]



    Now I did erase the "e's" from the word "quote" so that when I post this, it won't put it in the blue box, you'll see exactly what I see.

    Now I can erase whatever I want to from your text and quote you without quoting your entire post.

    Like this.
