How do you do a quote?

For eg: If I wanted to copy your message below, how do I put it into a little box?

You click on the quote button at the bottom of the post and hey presto, it's magic.

You can, if you want, delete any of the stuff in the post so you are only quoting the relevant part, it could be a long post and you only wanted to comment on a small part, but don't remove stuff in the [ ] brackets that you'll see when you are posting.

There are several options:
  • Press the "Quote" button located below and to the right of a post you wish to quote from.
  • Press the "Quote" button at the top of the post editor and paste in your text (or highlight the pasted text and then press "Quote").
  • Type it as below.
[quote]Quoted text.[/quote]

Quoted text.

[quote="Sister Sally"]Quoted text.[/quote]

OR, visit the FAQ (link on posting page).

This is mostly the same as yuku or most other message boards.
