  • How does the MultiQuote function work?

    Can someone help me with the MultiQuote function when replying to a post? When I click the multipost button nothing seems to happen except that a check appears on it. I was rather hoping that the indicated post would be copied with each paragraph/reply broken up into separate quotes so that I can reply inline.

    TIA

    Check two different posts then hit reply on one of those or another one. It will show each selection quoted separately in the reply box.

      Which looks like this - without the added spaces in the quote tags (I did that because I was too lazy to do screen prints).

        And like this when you're all finished answering!

              Can you post that in plain text so I can see how that multi-quote worked? I can't figure it out.

                That was under the old system - I can't make the new one work.

                  Rogue was able to get it to work in the post I quoted, it could be witchcraft. We may need to burn Rogue

                        As rogue's are wont to do ... I cheated.

                        I simply copy pasta'd each quote with out adding the end quote portion then put all three end quotes at the end of the post

                        That makes a lot of sense, like nesting in Excel. I was doing it like full quotes within quotes. I feel a bit stupid now...

                          Weird, I could have sworn I got multiquote working under the new system, but I can't get it to now.

                            Try this method.
