Hey guys. I know it probably sounds really dumb but I wanted to know how I would split up a post when I am trying to reply to it?

For example if ^^^that^^^ above was the whole post how would I split this up so I could reply to it in segments so it would look like:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
QUOTED REPLY: "Hey guys. I know it probably sounds really dumb"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ACTUALLY REPLY FROM DIFFERENT USER:Yeah this is dumb so shut up lol


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
QUOTED REPLY: "how I would split up a post when I am trying to reply to it?"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ACTUALLY REPLY FROM DIFFERENT USER: Still Shut up

If you click the button highlighted below then it makes it easier to format your post and move around quotes:

Once you've clicked it you can use [quote][/quote] tags to separate quotes.

Hi. Thanks a lot for that bit of information. Can I just ask one thing. Do I have to put this highlighted piece of text everytime I start the quote again. If so that's all good but if I'm doing it wrong let me know.

No you only need that line once at the top. The first one will give the quotee a notification and so for all the others you can just use [quote][/quote] without specifying the user.

I'm trying to reply to this post using this method. I can do the first quote fine but the second one when I do it, it won't let me click the button in red again to view the post normally and so isn't working I guess. Not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

I think I fixed it by putting "[quote]" instead of just [quote]

Yeah and no. It's works like this
Let me explain:

It works like this fine:
Name:  Capture.PNG
Views: 59
Size:  59.5 KB
Which makes it look like this:
Name:  Capture1.PNG
Views: 59
Size:  50.5 KB
Which works fine but is not the proper way.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It also works like this:
Name:  Capture3.PNG
Views: 67
Size:  48.5 KB
BUT
When I click the button to see what it would look like normally it works. I click the button again and it remove the = sign from my quote box which breaks it so I have to re-add it, any reason why it does this or if I'm still doing it wrong lol.

Probably just a bug - I notice things like that all the time. Are you able to get it to work though?
