I looked in the FAQ section and in other areas and I can't see how to include a previous post in my reply??? I see the menu choice at the bottom of the page, but when I select 'Quote', it doesn't give me a selection to choose???..Any one able to help this 'low-tech' guy? Thanks!

Well, there are FAQs created by the site admins, but most FAQs are a labor of love, pertainent to the site in general, and seldom complete.

Have you considered that "quote" is a function of the message board, a somewhat professional distribtion from < IkonBoard >?  Try the "help" button near the upper right corner of the window or the aforementioned URL   :2cool

After you RTFM, you'll probably want to click the "quote" within the specific post you want to quote.  And yes, you can edit that original post to only include the part of your interest (saving a little reading for others and server space).

There are a couple of ways this can be done.

If you click on the 'Help' button in the uper right corner of our forums and do a search on 'quote' you can find the answer.

I have also moved this topic here to this forum where it was more appropriate.  :thumbs-up
