Default How to MULTI-QUOTE (when replying to a thread) on Team-BHP

We've previously illustrated How you can create a new thread on Team-BHP, as also How you can post a reply to an existing thread.

This announcement will explain how you can use the Multi-Quote functionality when replying to threads (i.e. quoting more than one post in your reply).

1. Choose the thread that you wish to post a reply to:
Name:  01.jpg
Views: 10125
Size:  148.2 KB


2. While reading through the thread, you may want to quote / reply to more than one post. Example : 3 posts in the illustration below. To select the desired posts, click the "QUOTE +" button on the right hand side bottom (of each post you wish to quote):
Name:  021.jpg
Views: 9952
Size:  125.0 KB


3. Once you click the "QUOTE +" button, it will appear depressed. Use the same procedure to select any additional posts that you wish to quote. Note : To deselect any post, click the button again:
Name:  03.jpg
Views: 9360
Size:  88.1 KB


4. To finalize your selection:
OPTION 1: Click the "QUOTE" button on the final post that you wish to quote.

OR

OPTION 2: Click the "NEW REPLY" button.
Name:  option.jpg
Views: 9481
Size:  66.0 KB


5. All selected posts should now appear in a single reply window. Type out your own reply under each quoted post and press the "SUBMIT REPLY" button:
Name:  5.jpg
Views: 9735
Size:  191.5 KB


6. Your submitted post should appear as follows:
Name:  6.jpg
Views: 9656
Size:  177.6 KB


Please use the Multi-Quote feature to avoid making separate back to back posts.

Default Re: How to MULTI-QUOTE (when replying to a thread) on Team-BHP

TO BREAK A SINGLE POST UP INTO SEVERAL QUOTE BOXES:

1. Click the QUOTE button on the post you wish to reply to.

2. Delete the text you do not wish to quote in your reply, and separate the remaining text into the parts you wish to have show up in individual quote boxes.

3. Add a [quote] tag before the text you wish to quote begins, and a [/quote] tag at the end of the chosen piece of text. Note the "/" in the end tag.

Eg. This is what it would look like while you are composing your reply :
[quote]This would be text that you wish to quote[/quote]
This would be where you type your reply

4. You can repeat this several times, breaking the original post into multiple quote boxes so that you can reply point by point.

Note:

If the opening quote tag has additional information after it, for example :
[quote=Username;2763014]
or
[quote=Username]
... You can include that in the tag, as it will link to the original post, as well as trigger the "you've been quoted (You've been Quoted!)" PM.

-----------

The submitted post should end up looking like this :

Quote:

Your reply to the above quoted text.

Here's what you think of the above point only.
