To quote, I usually just click on "quick quote". But, if I wanted to quote more than one person in the same response, how would I do that?

I'm not aware of an easy way. So quick quote, copy the stuff that was put in the box for you, don't post it, quick quote the second one, and paste into there.

Or, just wait for one person to quote someone else, then quote them both and wait for the ensuing ziggurat.

I have, of course, QuickQuoted to get the above. Now, since the OP message is different, I can QuickQuote it, select the quote (triple mouse click), copy, cancel that QuickQuote, and paste the quote into this message:

You can do this for as many messages as you wish. Don't keep two windows open at once or try to open the same message while it's already open or the system will get confused.

Alternatively, open the thread in two tabs, using one to copy quotes from and the other for composing your reply.

You may want to get the Lazarus addon, which caches all replies, so if you make a mistake and lose your reply, you can just paste it from Lazarus. It's available for Firefox; I'm unsure of other availability.

OOh, now here's a valuable little nugget. This just might save my mouse from an untimely death. That little 'back' button on the side is simply in the wrong place for my usage. Too many times I've reached for the mouse only to bump that button and lose 15 minutes worth of reply building!!! angry Very nearly launched it a few times across the room to see what kind of relationship it would develop with the wall. I've been wondering if it was possible to disable it somehow. The only thing I've thought of so far is an app called "hammer-and-chisel". As satisfyingly useful as it might be on application, I think it may have long term effects that I may not be so happy about.
Thanks for that.

So what's the difference between quote and quick quote--aside from the way the message is displayed for me to work on? There doesn't seem to be a difference in the final product--or am I missing something?

The non-quick versions open up a fresh window, not showing the whole thread page, and they can be middle-clicked to open in a new tab. Also they have polling and quizzes. The quick versions are Javascript, so middle-clicking on them is futile.

A little technical stuff for quoting might well be in order here.

[ quote = username ] is how you start a quote block manually (without the spaces, of course), and [ /q ] is how you end it.

All you need to know is the name of the person you are quoting, and you can then just copy and paste the contents of the posts.

Ah, yes, I see how that works. Thanks. Why Javascript doesn't do that is a bit of tech detail that is beyond me, but don't feel obliged to spend time educating me about that one.
Cheers.

I'm familiar with the tech details, and as far as I'm concerned, it's crappy design (not by this site, but in HTML standards). You ought to at least be warned by cursor shape whether you're on a Javascript "link" or a "real" link; the better solution would be to have a Javascript link open the same window again and pass along the Javascript.

Anyway, now you know.
