Quoting a previous post question

Post by Bradley-Jazz » Wed Nov 18, 2020 9:43 am

Hi all

Sorry if this is a really daft question. I know there is the quote function when composing a post, and when I use it, I paste in the relevant text from above and it appears in quotes. But it is just the text I post in.

However, I've noticed that some users quote giving the name of the OP and a little arrow pointing up to the post in question - like this:

How do you do that?

Thanks!
Stop me if you think you've heard this one before....

Just hit the quote button beside your user profile icon. It automatically pops up the post field and quotes the previous user. :)
