    Stop screwing with my head

    How do I quote a message now?

    Ok, maybe I'm a dumbass but I can't figure out this new look and feel for replying to messages.

    I used to click on reply with quote, now that option is gone.

    I can click the quote message in reply checkbox on the quick reply, but then I have to go back and edit the parts of the quote I don't want to reply to.

    There's this multi-quote function, which seems to do nothing that I can see although maybe it works like the function above.

    So how do I reply with a quoted message like in the good old days.

    Try clicking "Quote"....

    MultiQuote does to do something.

    Maybe you were quoting too many people so they disabled the quote button on your accout lol.

    To multi-quote, click the plus on every post that you want to quote. Then hit the orange quote button on the last one you want to quote and it will append them all into one reply.

    The quote button wasn't displaying for me at the time.

    Well the button is back now so I can move on with my life.

    If the thread has been closed the quote buttons disappear I think.
