    The easiest is to utilize the "reply with post" feature and then trim out the portion you don't wish to include.[/QUOTE

    Now in the quotation {QUOTE=seanswife......} ...................text............text........... .. {/QUOTE}

    Delete the text parts you do not want. DO NOT delete the command boxes with the square brackets =[
    I used curvy brackets for illustration. If you happen to delete too much, you can re-type characters.


    Note you normally get about 15 minutes to go back an edit a post, after that it locks.

    You can quote anything {QUOTE} ....... {/QUOTE} with this format .......... again I replaced [ with {


    so
    wally said....
    you cannot delete the square brackets, the slash, or the Capital letters, they are part of the command.


    you can edit internal optional parameters like =seanswife99999 (I forgot your number...)


    I believe TigerLily has a thread in this sub-forum going over quotes, quotes within quotes, ad infinitum.....
