Here is my problem.
When I want to post a reply ans attach what someone else has written, you know in the bold and it would say something like:

TheRealEvilQueen wrote:
then it would say what I said in bold, then the person who was posting write their comment.
so far, I know to
Copy
Post Reply
then I THOUGHT that it is "quote", but whenever I do that, it only shows the quote and not who wrote it and it's not in bold, can you please help me...anyone!

Thanks so much in advance!

(I feel like such a Moron)

Okay, you apparently missed something somewhere... what I just did here was while reading your post (above), I simply clicked on the " " above your post; that should automatically take you to a reply page with exactly what you wrote, starting out with the word QUOTE enclosed in brackets [ ] then Originally posted by whoever, followed by QB also enclosed in brackets, your quote, then /QB in brackets and /QUOTE in another set of brackets. The letter "B" in QB tells it to bold the quote.

Clear as mud, huh ?

I must have left out something:

1. Click on the quotation marks at the top of the reply you want to quote.
2. When you do that, you should have a new reply box with the quote in it.
3. Just scroll down past the [/QUOTE] and type in your reply.
4. Click on "Add Reply" and that should do it.

As far as i know you can't quote quotes. You can only quote what the poster has typed not the quote and what they typed.
