    First thing: it is not essential to hit "Quote This Message" in someone's post in order to reply to them or just make a new post so please don't do it as a routine.

    You only need to quote if you particularly want to respond to a post that is some way back, even on a previous page. But mostly people do it because they want to just address a particular point or two. In this case, you click one of the widgets in in the bottom right hand corner of the person's post. To learn more about this, look here "Like", "Agree" and other cute things to put on people's posts

    Quoting a snippet of a post and using multi-quotes
    You can add as many quote snippets as you want before starting your message.

    First select the bit of text you want to quote by mouse sweeping (with the left button held down) over that text so it's highlighted blue as shown.

    When you release the mouse button, the "quote me" will appear.

    If you want to quote more than one bit of a message or bits from several different messages, just mouse sweep each snippet you want to use.

    As you do that, a little message will appear with two choices: either "quote" or "quote this message". So assuming you don't want to actually quote the entire message, click on the word 'quote'


    Then this message briefly appears across the top of the page


    Now go down to the box at the bottom of the page where you write your message
    You will find a small black box there with "insert Quotes" on it. Click on this


    and you get the multiquote panel up where you can (as it says) review your quotes.
    Here you can also
    2. remove a quote

    1. reorder the quotes by using your cursor (now looking like this aeromove cursor a.jpg ) you can drag the different quotes up and down the list


    Then click on "Quote These Messages

    Job done!

    If you still want to edit the quote some, then just please be careful that you don't corrupt the coding which you can see underlined in red.
    Edit only that text between the two square brackets - ] and [
    Don't edit the coding which is between [ and ]


    Particularly don't add your own comment between the quote codes or your post will show like it's from the other member instead of you!
