Hi Sajehar,

Like you I am very new to the forum, so I hope I give you the right information!

I think if you go the post you want to quote from, highlight the relevant text and then click the 'Quote' button (in the right hand corner, near your user name) it will start a new message with that text. When you submit, it will appear as a quote.

I did it with your message, so if that appears above it should be the right answer!

All the best,

Kate

For this post I just hit the quote button
Hi Sajehar,

Looks like if you want to quote the whole post, just hit the quote button.

If you want to quote a small bit of the text, select it first then click the quote button.

Happy quoting!

All the best,

Kate
That's it Kate, I usually have problems quoting a section of text. Image

Thanks, Kate Image
And I've only just realized after nearly three weeks that if you press the Arrow thing on RHS, you jump to the top of the page!!! Image (self portrait of me on my laptop)
What's a 'Sticky'?
Usually topics appear in chronological order - the topic with the most recent reply appears at the top of the section. A sticky is a topic that has been stuck at the top of the section so that it is always in the same place. It can be identified because the topic name is marked with a star when you view the list. Roll Call is a sticky, so is the topic When Is Your Birthday? in this section.
