 I thought I have seen people quote several others in one post and just want to know how to do this instead of writing three or four different post to answer.

Thanks

What I do is open two different windows, respond and quote the first person I want to quote, then go to the second window, respond and quote the second person and copy it into the first window, go back to the second window and from there go back to the third person I want to quote, respond, quote and copy like I did for the second person.  In the second window I don't post anything, I just use it to get the quotes. 

Helps? or is this confusing...

Hugs,

Pam

Took me a sec but after reading -rather than skimming - your explanation Pam - I understood. I had wondered the same thing as Cat but had not thought to ask, Thanks!

I'm glad it helped Leigh, some things are easier to explain than others.

Pam - I just did my first post quoting more than one person in a thread (one of them being you). I followed your instructions and it was easy. Thanks again.

 If you find it hard to use 2 windows, cut and paste it all into a notepad fil and then paste it back when your gotten all your "quotes" ... thats what I do. But that is allso cause my explorere tends to crash and I lose all I writen. so if I write big posts I draft them in Notepad.

Pam, the second one is another "hugging" highlight! *ROFL*

If I like to quote several people I just copy the quote marks in my typing box, delete the user name and type the new one in. But if you want to quote more than two people you need a second window in spite of that.

 Yes, Friday was a very exhausting day in office. Just running, running, running! But the weekend was great and successful so far and continues today with running! *laughz* My brother is going to run a half marathon today and I hope he'll make it. The whole family will be there to cheer and help him.

to you and healing bubbles for your knee!
