I know that by clicking onto to the quote button you end up quoting the poster's entire message with the 2 horizontal lines above and below the entire quote. My question is how do I get those two lines over a quote of just a couple of lines or one sentence instead of the entire quote?

Can anyone help me on this it's driving me crazy!

Clicking "quote" will quote the entire prior message. Just delete any portions of it that you do not want to use in your response.

Notice that you can also change the quotee, and of course, you could misquote someone by changing the text inside the quote with no one being the wiser. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote SPetty helping L.S. Dennis how to quote:</font><hr>Have you ever pressed the "quote" button rather than the "reply" button when replying to a post? That'll show you the extra code you need to make a quote of anything. You just add a little extra - start the quote with the open square bracket followed by "quote=whoever/whatever you're quoting" (without the quotation marks) followed by the close square bracket to start the quote. Then, to end the quote, you just use the open square bracket followed by "/quote" (without the quotation marks) followed by the close square bracket. Lots of words, but if I tried to type it in, it would make it look like a quote instead of showing you what it looked like. <hr /></blockquote>
