    Multi Quote

    I was wondering about the multi quote feature. I thought it was so that when you quote a post, all the quotes within that post would transfer too, but it doesn't seem to do anything. What's it for? Nothing seems to happen.

    Re: Multi Quote

    I believe it for taking quotes from different threads and moving them to your own post.
    Clicking the Quote+ on all the ones you want except for the last quote. On that one you choose the quote button. Then it moves all the quotes to your reply.

    When I want all the quotes from one post I simply hit "Quote" and then cut and paste the ones I want.

    I believe the quote button only quotes the owner of that post.

    Yeah, that's what I've been doing. Thanks Steve, I see what it does now.

    Yeah, very cool. I had been doing it manually using tabs and cut & paste. What a pain.

    Wow. That was fast and easy.

    Love your answer Shannon. Made me laugh.

    @rhea... I'm not sure if it works like that but when someone says something and I want to reply but it's off topic, I've been cutting and pasting the quote by moving it to the off topic thread and answering it there. So yeah, you can quote someone in a thread and put the quote in a different thread.
