    How to quote another post or multiple posts.

    Sometimes you may want to quote what another member has posted in order to ask a specific question related to that member's post.

    Like Mentions, Quotes also show in the quoted member's profile to alert them that you have quoted them in your reply.

    You can quote more than one member in your reply. Here's how:

    Simply click the reply with quote button at the bottom of the post you wish to quote.

    If you wish to quote more than one reply, click the multi-quote icon for all posts you wish to quote and finally. click the quote icon.

    Often, text you want to quote will be much longer than needed. Be sure to edit what you quote to make it easier for other members to follow the thread as well as your comment. For example,
    1. if you wish to comment on an image another member has uploaded, please remove that image from your quote so that it isn't displayed multiple times.
    2. if you are quoting a long stretch of code, please edit the quote to include only the code that is relevant to your question or comment.
