Here's how to do quotes from multiple posts here and on other sites (mentioning no names ;) ) that use vBulletin:

Each piece of quoted text (just use copy/paste) just gets started by the word "QUOTE=" and the user name, contained in square brackets and "/QUOTE" at the end.

For example [ QUOTE=SteveF ] I promise never to post the brekkie pic again [ /QUOTE ]

I have put in extra spaces just so it doesn't get interpreted. This is how it looks without the spaces:


I promise never to post the brekkie pic again
Hope that helps!

I tend to have two browsers open at the same time when doing that. One for the actual post and the other to cut and paste from.

Hope you guys are using the Firefox browser!

It's more secure and easier to use than Explorer, plus the tab system is fantastic.

Me too.

Plus, with Firefox you can hold down Control and click 'Quote' on the posts you wish to quote from, opening them in new tabs, so you can cut and paste the quotes easily.

I hate to admit it, but Firefox is so much quicker than MS Explorer, I wish I'd found it earlier! Now all I have to do is work out the twiddly bits!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
