Help with quotes

  1. Sep 26, 2013 #1

    I see everyone is quoting away. But when I start a new answer all the quote symbols disappear from the previous answers in the thread. How do i do this?

    That's for a purpose - we don't want too many nested quotes as way too often people quote everything without paying attention to what they quote. You can insert nested quotes manually, using [noparse][/noparse] tags.

    How did you "start a new answer"? Did you use the QUOTE button to start your response? Or did you hit NEW REPLY?

    Click the "quote" buttons instead of "new reply" if you want to reply to a specific post. You can quote multiple posts with the speech bubble "M" next to the quote button.

    Alternatively, the advanced version: Type quote tags manually.
