When writing your post scroll down and you will find a post history from about the last page or so, and you can choose multiple posts by clicking on the "quote" button on the top right hand corner of each one.toshinden wrote: ...

Yea OR we could just not tick the box in the Admin CP that collects every quote made by two people.andrew wrote:Or you could just edit the quoted text yourself so that you only have the one quote rather than 3 or 4 previous quotes which have been superceeded by the quote you are responding to thus cutting down on the total number of quotes that you are quoting
Which is why the preview button is so great. In fact, if I were to program a forum, I'd even make the preview button mandatory before posting to force posters to get a good look at what they are posting. I'm not a grammar/spelling n***, but at times I'm amazed what people post without checking (and I'm not refering to the spelling or grammar) but just plain long text without paragraphs or messed up quotes. It's really not that hard to make the appropriate adjustments by hand when doing multiple quotes.wesley123 wrote:is a pain in the ass, 9 out mof 10 times i mistake the quotes, ruining it completely
