How to Quote

Hi All,

A few people have asked for clarification on using the quote functions so here goes:

To quote someone you can either use the quote button on their post, and then delete the irrelevant bits … or you can type the code in by hand.

I have to do this wrong to prevent it making the code into an actual quote, but essentially you start the quote with a square bracket “[“, the word “quote”, an “=” sign, the name of the person being quoted and then a closing square bracket “]”

At the end of the quoted text you put the following: [/quote]

I’ve put a space after the 1st square bracket to stop it working, but the code should be as follows (without the space):

[ quote=name of person being quoted]The text you want to quote[/quote]

When you do that the text will appear as below when the post is saved:

All the best,
