Just punch the QUOTE Icon in the lower right of the post you want to copy. The software should then automatically open a new post with the quoted text at the top.

You can also use the QUOTE function to insert text. It's the icon that looks like a cartoon text balloon. Or just enter the code manually (I've left off the "e" in the function "quote" so you can how the tags work):

[quot]Text goes here[/quot]

When we upgrade to the newer version of VBulletin it will be more user friendly.

It doesn't work for me on occasion. I started to mention it to the IT folks here at NGTO but quickly surmised that other than Remoh......there is seldom anything here that is worth quoting.
