OK, this may sound like the most idiotic question ever, but how do you include quotes in your edits of the posts? To clarify, let's say I have responded to one post and posted it, but in the meantime, either couple of other posts were posted or I missed answering to some posts. Now I would have to edit it with quoting the posts I want to respond to. That is what gives me nightmares. I don't know how to do that. Yes, it is embarrassing given the fact I am here for 18 months and have posted thousands of posts, but I sincerely don't know how to do it.

Yes... I can't do that :blushing:

I'm not sure that there's a specific function for it. I'm on a tablet anyway so my options are already limited.

What I do:

1. Click the quote button on the desired post(s) (multi quote works too)

2. When it takes you to the posting screen with the quote there, highlight all the text and cut it (Ctrl + X)

3. Click the cancel button or do whatever it takes to get back to the thread without posting

4. Click the edit button on your post

5. Paste (Ctrl + V) the text into the box wherever you want

Sorry if that came across as condescending in places. :)
