When you post, you can format your post in many different ways. You can also include images or link in your post. During posting, you will see a list of buttons on top of the test box. The link below is the reference for these buttons. You can either click the buttons or enter the codes.

Here are some basic "Bulletin Board Codes" The codes use [    ] your text or link here [/    ]

To bold ,
Code: [Select]
[b]your text here[/b]  => your text here

To include a hyperlink - Use this code
Code: [Select]
[url]http://enter the URL address here [/url]
To include an image. Use
Code: [Select]
[img]http://the link to the photo[/img].

You can also use free image hosting sites such as photobucket.com, pixum.com, ranchoweb.com, and shutterfly.com and copy the links of the location in your post using this icon .

Resize a photo - add width= and specify a number such as 600

Code: [Select]
[img width=600] your image URL [/img]
After you have uploaded your photos, make sure you get the larger versizon of photo, not the thumnail. You can right click on the photo and select "Properties" to see its image location.

Quoting
« Reply #4 on: Jan 14, 2006, 04:55 AM »
When you want to respond to a particular post, you can click "Quote" button on that post.

If you want to quote multiple posts, you will see "insert quote" below the reply post box for each post. Just click it and the post(s) will be quoted in the text box.

Still only be able to quote one message ... multiple quote using "insert quote"
javascript:surroundText('
Quote
', '
', document.postmodify.message)
above, only give quote string, which is very difficult to include original authors  :-\

please help with where the "insert quote below the reply post box for each post" is.

thank you.

Hello there, I'll try to answer that one.

Ok if you want to quote more than one member in the same post it's simple.

1- You first select the 1st member you want to reply to. You hit

2 - Then you delete the things you do not want to post again. And keep the sentence/word that you want to reply to.

3 - Then underneath [ /quote] You reply to that member.

When the you want to add another quote from another member, make sure to leave a space or two after your reply, then you scroll down a little, and you clic on the "Insert quote" of the member you want to quote. Then it's step 2 & 3 again.

If you just wanted to quote the same member 2 to 3 times, but reply to a particular question, one after the other...
Instead of doing [quote ]MEMBER's QUOTE[/ quote], just copy and paste the orginal quote line [ quote author = bharata link=topic=1363.msg17002#msg17002 date=1139625724 ] and finish by [/ quote]
