QUOTES
To quote somebody's post, find the Quote button near the ! exclamation mark button (above their post to the right by default). Click it instead of "Reply" Then snip, paste, and add as desired. It will look like this:

Code: Select all

Good stuff! Thanks Tom. I made this post "sticky" so it stays up top.
