Thread: partial quoting

  1. #1

    Question partial quoting

    Can I impose on someone more intelligent than me (which is about all Republicans--ha) to explain how to Quote just part of a thread? It's probably pretty simple, so even as simple as I am, maybe I can understand it. Thanks for the help.

    Hit the quote button, delete the verbage you don't want, preview post, then post. Easy as pie or clear as mud?

    Pretty simple (must be if a "liberal" can do it, eh?).

    The tags needed are [*quote] and [*/quote] (minus the *).

    For example if you wanted to quote just THIS PART OF THE POST, you would click the on the respective thread.

    Then either trim it to fit inside the [*quote] [*/quote] tags or enter those tags manually and remove all superfluous text.....

    THIS PART OF THE POST
    Would be what ya get........It would look like this when it was typed out (again without the *) [*quote]THIS PART OF THE POST[*/quote]



    Hope that makes sense.......

    Oh, and you can try it out by typing it up and hitting the "Preview Post" button next to the "Submit Reply" button....It'll let ya tinker with it until you figure it out.....

    you can also highlight text in the reply box and click to set the quote bb code arround the highlighted text.


    It works really well if you copy and past text from other posts then use the above feature to set it apart as a quote.

    Like this...

    No thanks, Hippie. I appreciate the offer, but I don't follow Crimson Tide sports and I don't swing that way.
    Thanks for the offer.

    I hope we have thoroughly illustrated hot to partially quote and butcher other's posts. I will "pull out" of this conversation as my next post would certainly be rated something other than G.

    It was all in good fun. There was a spammer attacking when I started it, he ate his ban and went on his merry way.
