How to include multiple quotes inside a message.
« on: March 11, 2017, 02:51:24 PM »
I get how to quote someone's message but I don't understand how people quote excerpts from multiple people.  Can someone explain it or drop me a link?  I've searched for 'how to' but could not find a link.

For breaking a quote into multiple quotes

You need just keep copying and paste the 1st line/string (I've deleted the square brackets so you can see it).

quote author=FIRE_at_45 link=topic=69900.msg1471018#msg1471018 date=1489269084

and the last line

/quote

You can do it manually with markup words...  but I suspect this is what you are looking for:

Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight

Use the "insert quote" key....

The full markup is:

Code: [Select]
[quote author=FIRE_at_45 link=topic=69900.msg1471117#msg1471117 date=1489275646]
The author is easy... the msg number and link are not so straight forward.

Thank you, I can now do almost everything I need to do.  Hopefully I can learn on there how to do the hyperlinks.  I got one to work but I don't get how to get it to jump to an exact spot (i.e. halfway through page 8 in a journal).  I figured out how to get it to jump to the page but I must have to link it to the exact message.

...I must have to link it to the exact message.
Which you can do by copying the link behind the "Re: ______" at the top of the message.

Or, if you have brought the message into your post using the "Insert Quote" button, the link is already there behind the "Quote from:________".
