Using 'Quote' in threads
« on: October 19, 2012, 06:56:36 am »
Hello
  I have a case where I wish to to quote from one thread into a reply of another thread.
 
I see how to do it quoting into a reply within the same thread.
 
Is it possible to do this without doing the normal copy and paste please.
 
I have searched here and did not find anything to aid me.
 
I looked at the guide list however nothing in there seemed to stand out.
 
Perhaps I am missing it
Thanks
Rob

The only way to do that is to hit "Quote" and then copy the contents that appear in the quick reply box and paste them into your new reply on another topic.

Doing so will make it appear exactly as below. Where you can click the name/time and date and it will redirect you to the original post.

Thanks for the replies. Perhaps this is something to be looked at in a future release.
 
Cheers
