    Maybe I just haven`t seen one, but do we, or can we, have a multiquote facility please. :)

    That, of course is if Admin think it would be a benefit.

    Just hit the reply button on each of the posts you want to quote. Each will be added to your post. I've just clicked reply twice on your post to demonstrate:)

      That doesn't work if those posts are in seperate threads that you have opened, as it will result in multiple, individual replies to each of those threads. For multiple quotes I open replies (quotes) in either new tabs/windows and then edit as required & cut and paste them all into a single response, but preferably pointing out that some quotes have come from a completely different thread, perhaps with a named link to it to make it clear.

      Do you often feel the need to add quotes from one thread into another.:scratch: :)

      We did have that facility until someone joined the Obituary forum with the Caption competition.

      Worked again:)

      Doesn't work across threads, but if you need to do that, then I guess its just a case of cut and paste:dbgrtmb:

          In that case, I guess the quote button in the editor comes in useful to. Its the little blue double quote icon on the toolbar.
