Title: how to insert quotations from other members of this site
Post by: KF6GUB on January 12, 2013, 01:25:19 PM
There must be a better way of inserting quotations from other submissions than what I did to insert a quote from someone else's submission.  What is it?  It's got to be relatively easy.  Mine wasn't blue.  thx   Jim

Instead of clicking reply, click 'quote', then erase any irrelevant portions of the original message. Add your comments below the quote.

You can also highlight, copy & paste from a previous message within a thread, then make it a quote by clicking the yellow quote icon above the row of emoticons. Second from the right, looks like a cartoon balloon. Be sure to mention who you're quoting when you do this as the forum won't auto-ident the quote. In long threads remember that a quote from six messages up can be confusing for a reader to follow, so make it obvious who the quote came from...

It's fairly easy to manipulate the quotes at will once you see how they are constructed.

Too many hams do not follow this simple advice. Instead they quote the whole message.

Simple forum etiquette demands that you only quote the part of the post you are commenting on.

It's fairly easy to manipulate the penguins at will once you see how much they like fish.
