...........The quote button is stupid! Totally and utterly illogical and it's unlike anything I've ever seen on any forum. You have to press quote and then immediately press "unquote" .... yes really! No kidding!
Then and only then do you go to your reply box and click on the " icon.
But once you know how to do it, it's pretty straightforward and it works, and for a while it didn't. When I first signed up many moons ago, you only needed to click on 'quote' then go to the " icon, but after a problem on the site was corrected you then needed to hit 'quote' then' unquote'. I've assumed that as major work on the website was planned, then the fix that necessitated the quote unquote work-around was temporary.
.... But once you've quoted once you can't split the quote to respond to each point
I can - it's slightly fiddly, but can be done.
However it would be great if it was possible to select a portion of the post to quote rather than quote the whole post then delete the bits not needed.
