When you post a reply you shall find a quote symbol situated next to the # symbol. Click on the quote symbol and copy and paste that part of the post which you wish to quote.  :)

Upgrade your web browser to the latest version.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

Browsers have nothing to do with using BBC on the forums.

To quote a post, click the icon to automatically insert the post into the reply box.


If that's not working, you can do it manually by copying the post and doing this:
Code: [Select]
[quote]PASTE POST HERE[/quote]

Or


Code: [Select]
[quote author=NAME OF PERSON]PASTE POST HERE[/quote]

Or for even more advanced...


Code: [Select]
[quote author=NAME OF PERSON link=LINK OF QUOTE]PASTE POST HERE[/quote]

I believe your web browser would be the problem if clicking on the bbcode button isn't working. I don't think there's any other explanation if it can work for me.
