This site has it all, but I'm still pretty new to it and a lot things I have yet to figure out. How in the world do you guys (and girls) get those qoutes under your posts?

"Quotes under your posts"? Is this to mean, quotes of other members' messages? Just click on Reply, or copy and past, and put the quotation tags around what you want shown as a quote if missing.

square left bracket, QUOTE,square right bracket, stringToBeQuoted,square left bracket, forwardslash,QUOTE,square right bracket

[quote]text[/quote] (to show the code like this, you can write [plain][quote]text[/quote][/plain], and to show this code... well you get the idea. Quote my post to see the full code).

But I'm quite sure TheQuietOne means signatures:

Really interesting. In the quoted stuff you say to quote, there is other stuff I do not understand looking like part of the word, "plain" is cut, so not clear how works. Then there is later at the end, pound pound downarrow pound pound. I cannot see what that does.
Maybe a different topic.

Here's a screen grab of what I think symbolipoint is referring to...

To display the plain tag, you cannot just write [plain]foobar[/plain], because the forum interprets that as plain tag (="show foobar without interpreting tags in foobar"). But if you write [pl[plain][/plain]ain], then the forum processes the inner plain tags (they do not have text in it, but that does not matter), symbols before that ("[pl") and after that ("ain]") do not form tags, so they are just displayed as I typed them. Both together appear as "[plain]". Same for the end tag.

See the post from dlgoff about the arrow.
