    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    First off,
    YES I did search (a lot) and re-read the FAQ's but can't find the answer. (i'm sure the answer is there somewhere, just can't find it)

    Q: How do place multiple quotes in a single post?

    I can only do one quote at a time. I've tried holding shift + quote, nothing. Tried control + quote, not! What am I doing wrong?

    thanks,
    smogg

    I generally left click on the quote button > open in new tab, and then cut and paste into one reply box.
    I know there is a multi-quote function, Im just accustomed to my ways.

    Click the "+ button (to the right of the quote button) in the bottom right of each post you want to quote. Then, click the post reply button. Each quote you've tagged will show up in the reply box.

    Aka multi quote of doom thread!!!
     
  7. I simply click on people's posts with the quote button and make a separate tab, and then one by one I cut and paste into my "dialogue" tab which is the one that gets posted.

    I usually memorize all the posts I want to quote and retype them as I am replying.

    And... will it work when you have posts spanning over more pages to multi-quote?

    Holy carp!! And to think that all these years I was just manually copying and pasting each time I wanted to multi-quote.
