    Default How do I quote in a post and include the name of who I am quoting?

    When posting, what are the steps involved in quoting someone and including their name?

    My quotes are missing the author. When I quote someone, I just highlight and copy their text, hit the quote icon, and then paste the text within the quotation code.

    Which step am I missing or doing wrong?

    Use the quote button at the bottom of their post.

    I've added a space after the first [ bracket to get this to show up the way it will look before you hit "submit reply". Pertinent characters in red.

    Ah ha!!! Formerly, I would hit "reply", type my message, and then hit the little quote icon in options area.

    Thanks for helping me with that!!!
