Can someone out there explain to me very slowly how to do quotes on this forum. What I have doesn't appear to work. The HELP does not help. I do not have anything to change or edit anything with. Is it a secret or is this something I have to pay for?

  • I used to be able to copy and paste on my phone but now I can't even do that.
  • I would like to know how to do the linky thing as, since all the changes, I can't do it anymore



    Edit: for a misspell that could have been embarrassing

    Thanks for that guys, I just assumed I was thick instead of really thick. Mind you, some know what to do, the evidence is there to see.
  • Kinky?
  • Lets see
  • Nope I can't do it

    When you've worked it out, let me know.

    quotes are easy

    hover over the person's post and a little blue quote box pops up in the bottom right - click that. then on your message box, click the quotation marks in top right above the box, and the quote gets pasted in.  and you can edit that as you see fit and then type what you want.   that's on a PC by the way - it may be different on a smart phone

    Schimples !!

  • Well the linky thing seems ok now ...

    You have to do it backwards to an extent

    If I want to link 'This'  then you write the word in the text and THEN clink on the hyperlink on the tool bar and it gives you the options from there

  • I stand corrected ... the linky thing went nowhere !!

  • But actually just typing the website address and it automatically turned into a hyperlink ...

    just typing it doesn't work - try clicking that link above and see what happens....

    it's not the most intuitive way of crearting hyperlinks!!

    and one thing about quote - it doesn't allow selectively quoting text by highlighting - it selects the whole message always.  that's a pain as you need to edit to get the selective part from what can often be a long message

  • My post at 10.07 works and that was just typing .... the one after was a different attempt

    maybe only works if there's no text before??  I shall try

  • fat buddhafat buddha ✭✭✭

    hmm - still had to highlight and click the link button to get that

  • Meldy's way works.  Type the text first, then add your hyperlink in as you used to.  Don't type anything in the text secion of the hyperlink window
