    Could someone please teach me how to multi quote?

    What I mean is how do I successfully multi quote more than one person in one post?

    I always fail and get it wrong.

    Step by step instructions would be helpful :p


    For examples sake, I'll write another message after this so someone could use this thread to demonstrate? Thanks

    I went to the Quote button (like you did) and edited it to the first part, then copied the initial quote bracket info, changed the MAP username, edited the second part, made sure there was a close brackets and ta da. Simple like html

    For all the posts you want to qoute, press the "multiquote" button on each one.

    Except for the VERY LAST POST that you want to quote. On this one just press the normal "quote" button.

    For manual editing, do as Princess Haru said.

    Lets see if this works.

    Ok, preview seems to show it works, but how would I multiquote more than 1 person if I don't have their user id thingy?

    Thanks for asking Crow. I've always done opened a second browser window, went to MAP, and cut/paste quotes. This will be much simpler!

    Lets see how responses look now, after all this is the testing forum. :p

    It just goes on to prove how much we miss with something right in front of our eyes!

    I always did it wrong, I have learnt ask and you shall receive!

    (Just writing auto responses to see how this looks).

    That's cool. I wondered how to too but just found a method that worked for me.

    Me neither. Shameless 'new' multiquote test:happy::happy::happy::happy::happy: if only i could fix my sticky left button on this laptop which selects things when i'm not looking....

    I don't trust this new-fangled multiquote malarky. We didn't have poncy stuff like that when I were a lad!

    I just press the 'quote' button. Then if I want to break it down into sections and reply to each one individually, I simply type the word 'QUOTE' in square brackets before the bit that I want to quote and '/QUOTE' in square brackets at the end. But kids today don't want to learn proper skills like that. :rolleyes:
