thank you. Even though i knew how on the old site and just tested out my method here in another post...it helps to have the info. I know lots of times members have asked me how and I trip over myself trying to explain it simply. I can take a simple set of facts and make them complicated like nobody else I know!
Now, let me quote you here:
From there your dialogue box will open with the quoted text. If you only want to quote a specific portion of their text, you just delete the that text from inside the box and leave what you want up.
That, I did not know; the part about placing the entire quote and deleting the part you didn't want to use.
Over at the WD (I know I've brought this up already today in my other post) for some reason the quote feature seems to work in a different way; for me, anyway. I finally quoted someone over there but it automatically included the entire post of that person which is not what I had intended. I never thought about deleting the parts I didn't want. I guess I figured it was that way on purpose and I'd get in trouble for taking out part of a quote.
what I do here, is I highlight the words I want, then hit CTRL + C, go into the reply field, and click on the Quote feature (between the u for 'underline' and the 'Code' feature....it then shows up as
*quote/quote, with the cursor placed in between.
I then do the CTRL +V, to paste it and voila' !
this is a bit different from how the old site worked....at the old site, you had to hit the Quote feature, paste the words, and THEN hit the Quote feature again, to 'end-quote'.
* in reality , there are brackets showing around the word quote when you do this, but when I typed it that way in my post here, it turned itself into a quote function and made it even more confusing.
I should have left well enough alone and not posted "my way".
See? I told you I couldn't explain it in an easy to follow/simple way.
