    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    You click Multi Quote next to each post you want to quote from in the thread, then click Reply to Post and it quotes them all.
    Two levels higher than a newb.
    (I can search google)

    Moved to "Comments, feedback, suggestions" as this has to do with the forum software.
    p.s. maybe it is my laptop, but when I click on the multi-quote button, nothing happens.
    the other buttons work fine.
    How to know if you are a geek.
    when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"

    Nothing is supposed to happen until you click the Post Reply button. Once you do that, all the quotes for each Multiquote button that you pushed previously will show up in the reply box.

    OK, I see now, I thought I just had to select the post via the checkbox and hit the multiquote button just once.
    I just have to hit the multiquote button on each of the posts that I want to quote.
