    It works for me, as long as the two posts I want to quote are on the same page.

    Yeah, when I try to use the actual multi-quote function, it just locks up the second time.

    Go to the next place you want to quote, hit the quote function, then INSERT what you just copied (above or below what's already there), then copy all of that --- you can edit it out later --- then hit CANCEL!

    Now you can either insert that all in a new post, or "quote" another one, insert that, then drag and drop it, edit it to your heart's content.

    OR, if it's a long post - I use WordPad or some other text editor to do all my arranging in, then copy that all into a new post.

    Try this method.

    The [ QUOTE=B] should be [QUOTE=B] with no spacing

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