Re: Quote Within A Quote ??

Typically, when you click on the "Quote" button in the lower right of a post that contains a quote you will only get the text from that post and you won't get the quote.

But, if you're using Firefox you can click on "quote" to open in a new tab. You can also do this in IE. You will then have a new tab with the post you want to quote and you will still have the original in the previous tab.

Now go to the upper left corner of the tab where you are quoting and click enter a couple of times. This gives you some room above the text from the quoted post.

Now go back to the original post that contains the quote that you want to transfer and click and drag on the contents of the quote. This will highlight all of the text in the quote. Right click on the highlighted text and click on copy. Now go to the tab where you inserted the extra space at the top. Put your cursor in the upper left and right click. Now click on "paste" and the contents of the original quote will be put there.

Now just click and drag on the newly inserted text and when it's highlighted click on the "quote" icon at the top of the window and it will wrap quotes around the newly inserted text and when you review it you will see the original post with the original quote. You can now compose your post and it will include the quote from the other post.
