using quotes

Just a basic forums question. How do you use the quote tool? I kind of figured out accidentally how to quote an entire post, but how do you use it to quote just a section of someones post?

"...how do you use it to quote just a section of someones post?" What I did just now was to highlight the part I wanted to quote, then copy it. Then, in this message box, I first typed the " and ... (since I'm cutting out part of the sentence), pasted what I copied, then typed the " at the end. It actually takes longer to tell you what I did than to do it.

I quote the whole post, if I want to retain identifying information from the person I am quoting, then delete what I'm not responding to.

Works every time.

As noted above, but a caution. When you are in the Reply to Thread screen, you will see the quote surrounded with square bracketed Quote and /Quote marks. Don't delete them, or the quote will show up as your own text.

Test it to see. Start to respond to your own post with a quote, edit it down to just the part you want to quote, and then press Preview Post to see how it looks. You can delete your experiment before actually posting it.

Lesson 2 will be multi-quotes ;-)

You got good answers. For me I hit the quote key, then I delete the sentences that I don't want to see again. FYI, do not delete the [ ] brackets at the beginning and end of the quote. If you do, the message you are quoting won't show as a quote. It will look like you typed it.
