How to include quotation boxes when replying to a post.


Recommended Posts

When replying to a post, the content of the post will automatically be quoted in your reply. However, any quotation box in the post will be ignored. This is usually a good thing because it prevents quotations from increasing in size with each subsequent reply.

However, sometimes you might want to quote a quotation box when replying to a post in order to put your reply in greater context. Following is how to do that.

First, find the post you want to reply to. Place the mouse arrow so that it is pointing to the very end of the text in the post. Push-and-hold the left mouse button and drag the arrow up so that it highlights the content of the post you wish to include in your reply. And that includes any quotation boxes. Let go of the mouse button once you have highlighted everything you want to quote. Upon doing so, a box that says "Quote Selection" will pop up. Click that box and you are ready to write your response.
