Greg has brought to my attention that the quote button is not working for everyone.  I will see if I can fix that for you.

It also works if you hit "Multiquote".  A box will appear at the bottom that add the number of quotes you have included.  When you continue to click on the posts you want to quote, it gives you a number--- 2 quoted posts. Then you simply click on that and you will see to quote boxes, like you see above. You can put your cursor between the boxes, to comment on each one.

It is all about where you set your cursor.  Use the "quote" and keep (leave or move) your cursor inside the quote box.  It will appear to be right at the end of the sentence you have quoted, but don't worry about that.  Scroll up and hit your next quote, and it will display within the first quote box.

Here is the first quote box:

You can see that I have set my cursor in the quote box, and then scroll up to the next one I want to nest inside the first quote.

 

You may not be able to use these tools in this forum.  Go to the Squirrel room, and try them on "Kid stuff".

Okay Mol...I got a question.  How'd you 'double quote' like that?

 

Put your curser inside the first quote box and then hit the return key and press the quote button again......

and here it is......inside the first quote box.  :rolleyes:

 

 



add another one if you like...... B)

 

 

then you can go below in the first quote box and add more and more
