Hopefully this will be helpful & save future confusion.
From time to time I see replies to posts that are confusing. Complete posts are quoted with no comment or reply from the person that replied. Replies that are mixed up in someone elseís post that was quoted.
When you hit that ĎReplyí button at the bottom right of a post you get something that looks like this one quoting one of my typical comments.
But that is not always the way that you want to reply in a thread.
Bla bla bla bla & bla bla bla
If you surround the word quote with these brackets ---> [ ] on each side of it in front of any group of words & /quote surrounded by the same brackets at the end of that group of words you will get a quote box like the one above.
So, your text would look like this....
If you quote someone directly & leave in the timestamp thing, that looks like this example,
-----> timestamp='1317233755' post='40352',
you can easily read that original quoted post by clicking here.
Iíd like to add that I donít think that I am alone in appreciating it when someone replies without quoting an entire prior post, or worse yet the entire post including a whole long string of photos that we have just seen.
