Welcome to Librarium Online!
I searched for the answer to this question but couldn't find one, so I must be the only Person in existance who doesn't know how to use the multiquote function.
Can someone please help out a non-computer idiot and explain how to use it.
First, I've booted your thread to Site Feedback & Support.
The way it works for me is I hit the multiquote button on all the posts I wish to quote in my reply, then just hit reply - my reply then contains all of the posts I selected. Does it not work this way for you?
Apologies if I'm covering stuff you already know, but I figure I'll start with the basics.
There are two ways you can go about it. The first is to copy and paste whatever part of the post you want into your reply window, then click on the "Wrap QUOTE tags around selected text" icon from the menu above your reply field - the button looks like so --
The other way is to multiquote each message you want a chunk out of, then edit each block accordingly.
For example (*'s added):Is what your post looks like when I quote it in my reply. So if I edit it down to:Code:[*quote=Diddlysquat;1035558]Thanks for the reply, but I still don't seem to have the hang of it. I want to pick out specific parts of the post so they appear 'boxed' in my reply, and it's not happening for me. Quite frustrating! Anyway, thanks for your help.;Y[/quote*]It shows up like this in my reply:Code:[*quote=Diddlysquat;1035558]I want to pick out specific parts of the post so they appear 'boxed' in my reply, and it's not happening for me. [/quote*]
To add the name of the original poster, add "=NAME" to your open tag
-- [*quote=Cyric the Mad]
To add the post number, add ";NUMBER" to the tag
-- [*quote=Cyric the Mad;1035558]
Thank you very much for that - much appreciated.
