    If you want the entire other post, you click on the little blue bar that says quote.

    If you only want part of it, you "quote", and then delete whatever of the original post you don't want.

    Be carefull of the quotation blocks in fornt of, and at the end of that entire quote. Don't delete them.

    click on "Quote", drop down two lines, and write what you want. Then click "Submit Reply". We forgot to mention the part about skipping down a line, or two!:rolleyes:

    You can also start at the beginning, but then the quote will be after what you wrote, instead of before it. Don't really matter, as long as you don't erase any of the stuff within the brackets.

    You can even put some stuff above what you are quoting
    and some stuff below it, if you want to.

    It's also possible to put some stuff in the middle.

    Just wanted to see if this worked. :p

    You can even quote from other threads. This one's from a thread about left-handed rifles.

    Hey goofy don't beat your self up. I am in the same boat when it comes to doing things with the computer. Just keep plugging away. You will never find more kind and helpful people than right here on TTF to help you out. I have to rely on them at times to figure things out.
