Is there a way to insert a quote when you are editing a post? I didn't see an option to do this.
I just tried it in my "deletion notification thread" and it didn't work. Maybe there's some way that I don't know about.
Highlight the text you want to quote, then click the + button, and click Quote.
An edit example ↓ ...
Ok, let me try that...
Ok, that works but 2 problems, one, you have to do it manually with a cut and paste, two, it doesn't register the poster's name. However, at least it's halfway there. Thanks for the tip.
Well, it seems to...
Or... open the edit button in a new tab, and copy and past from the previous tab...
I left out the post number on purpose... so no arrow.
OCR, now try going back to your above post #5 and place another quote of mine (or anyone) right below it. Hit the edit button on post 5.
You do have to click + Quote over on the right, if you are replying with a quote and name... it's very hard to see.
Yeah, so from what I'm getting you can enter an additional quote manually through the edit function, but can't include the poster's name.
Actually, I was able to insert my own text into your quote, see. Because you never said "how about this." So again, manually, you can insert a quote with the poster's name if you want to go back and edit a post and add another quote from someone. A bit of a hassle, though, is there a way to add the automatic quote insert on the edit feature?
The quotes are just part of your post text. So technically you can, but if you abuse it it will have consequences.
I usually use the text area for a new post to collect quotes, then copy that to the edit window.
Separate names with a comma.
