Quoting someone elses post?


How exactly do you quote someone elses post? When I tried it and checked in preview, it's there but it doesn't show who the posters name is.

"Tried it" how? Did you use the "Quote" button, or ???

Please advise. Thx.

When I do it I'm not getting the "Originally posted by ______"

What I'm doing is....I hi-lite the text I want to quote.
Then right click and copy. Then click the quote key, then paste in the window that opens, then click ok.

But it doesen't list original poster.

Thanks

Things are easier than people sometimes make them out to be.

Using Photobucket and selecting 800 pixels or smaller before uploading photos to show here, is an example of something really easy... yet, there are still some who think it is hard, or unnecessary.

:light: :yes:
