Select each one you want in the quote the hit reply and it should give you a multiquote reply

W-O-C, no separate place. Look over to the right side, bottom of screen, NEAR the REPLY button. For instance, I post that I think that anyone that works in a hospital must be a liberal, left wing commie pinko tool of the oppressors and is obviously part of the plan to ban tinfoil, capguns, and floridate our water. And that Ruger pistols suck.

Well that one should probably get a thumbs down.

Rugers don't suck.
I see the difference between the "!" and the thumbs down. But can they be used interchangably? I think you said the thumbs down will bring a mod running from the poker table to see what's up. I use the "!" when I want to report a post. Can I use the thumbs down instead?

Thank you for your reply.

Yeah, I don't get the difference either.

Vikingdad, the multiquote is the " button right next to the "quote" button. Click the " for each post you want to multiquote the hit "reply" and they will all appear in your reply box.

Multi-quote. Click on multi Q on fist post to be quoted, Scroll to the next to be qouted, click on multi again. When you get to the last one you wan't to quote, click on the regular quote button. All Quotes will be in your post in the order you clicked them. Hope this helps Dad. Will put the next post in as an example.

Click quote tab. You may have to use your browser's back button after the first one as well.

I click on the multi-quote icon and it turns red (I run out of the room--- not), I have tried to copy and paste but that doesn't work. I am such a Luddite.

Yes, it'll turn red. Then the next one you want to multiquote will turn red, too. Then hit reply and they will show up in your reply box.

Vikingdad, here is what I do:

If you want to multiquote two things:

1. Hit the multiquote button one time on the first thing you want to quote, so it turns red.

2. Hit the quote button on the second thing you want to quote.

3. Type in whatever you like.

4. Hit 'submit reply.'


If you want to multiquote more than two things:

1. Hit the multiquote button one time on the first thing you want to quote, so it turns red.

2. Hit the multiquote button one time on the next thing you want to quote, so it turns red. Do this for each additional thing you want to quote, except for the last one.


3. Hit the quote button on the last thing you want to quote.

4. Type in whatever you like.

5. Hit 'submit reply.'

I had to play around with the buttons one day to figure this out, lol...
