When responding to a post how do you do a double quote.

For example If I am trying to make a reply and want to quote 2 different posts above mine how do I do it?



I thought I could quote the 1st post, then type whatever. Then fing the next post I wanted to quote and hit the quote button for that one. Then post more but I cant seem to do it. The quote button isnt there after I click it the first time.



Thanks

Thereprobably isa simpler way but you could first highlight and "copy" one post, then 'quote' theother and "paste"what you copied into the body of the post you are 'quoting'? It is simpler than it sounds!





Sorry Redwing, I was writing while you were posting. Your description looks simpler than mine!

Now, here I am going to paste the crappola below here , create Quotes for each segment.

You do that by highlighting only a small bit of the text, the chunk you want for that particular quote. Then you go up and click on the Double Quotes icon to the left of the Globe Link symbol.


Quote:
Highlight all of the text from as many posts as you want.
Here, I highlight the above line, and clicked on that Double Quote symbol



Quote:
Paste those into a text editor. Use lines between each post to separate them -----------------
I did the same here, I highlighted the above line and clicked the Double Quotes...



Quote:
Leave a blank line between the posts also. ----------------------
Leaving those blank lines really gives your post a lot of emphasis and also makes for better readability.

Quote:
Then copy paste the whole shebang from the editor over to the REPLY editor in the forum.
And now, I will bow out, and let you do it.


John

Thanks John,



Its funny you replied to this, the reason I was asking is because I was wanting to respond to you and another fellow in my thread on the rebuld of my 82 1100 in the tech section.



I figured I would ask this question while I was waiting on the garageto warm up. Its warm now so its time to go out and start working on it.I will have to study what you just said above and give it a try later tonight by responding to you and maybe posting more pics of the rebuild.



Thanks.

Ok Im back from the garage. Had a bad night there. Will post about it.



Where is this double quote Icon next to the globe.? And where is the globe link sybol?

Man am I confused....LOL When you say text editor , is that something on the forum or is that something like the WORD program on my computer. ?



Sorry for all the questions.

I use the MSN Browser and I don't have those either; I was hoping someone would ask?
