Doing more than one quote in a message

Some people have said they have trouble with this so here is the explanation of how to do it for future reference.

First of all do the usual quote for the first one

then underneath scroll down to the second thing you want to quote and copy and paste it into your message.

Highlight it and click on that icon on the end that looks like a page with writing on - if you slide your cursor over it, it says "wrap Quote tags round selected text"

That just puts quote round it - so add in the name after the first [ quote] but inside the end square bracket i.e. [ quote=Patsy] (don't leave a gap after the [ - I just did that so it wouldn't format this message)

I used to do it by just typing the [ quote] and [/quote ] at the beginning and end (following the same format as the custom one, til ils told me about the Quote Icon.
