A new query, which I haven't been able to find the answer to unassisted... When quoting someone else's post, because it is relevant to your own, how does one go about including multiple quotes on the one post?

Thank you :)

Hi linnie!

Omit the spaces from the below, I added the spaces so you could see the forumat:

For just quoting:

[ quote ]cut and paste your text [ / quote ]

If you wish to refer to the individual use:

[ quote = linnie ] text [ / quote ]

Try it, you can use this forum to experiment.

If you ever wonder how anyone did something, just hit the Quote button under their post and the formatting will be revealed.

Try it.

Thank you, Alta... All sussed out, now!!! I looked for that [key earlier, and simply didn't see it, and wondered if it turned like that when it found its way onto your site... really!!!!!!!!!!! (This is what you are dealing with here!!!:))

Anyway... I was just glancing down doing not very much, and... behold... a squarish parenthesis bracket... I jjust used it to great effect in another post... yay!! I'm very impressed (with your teaching rather than my learning... thank you! :))
