Can't see how to multi quote. Could someone be gentle and point me in the right direction?

The way I do it is quote the first post, paste it into the reply, and then from a new browser window, quote the new post, copy to the clipboard and then paste it into the reply window (may be a better quicker way, but that's the way I have always done it for years)

On other forums there is a simple multiquote option. Seems a bit long winded to me this way. Thanks.

I've never liked the multi quote features myself. Found them confusing :s_yes

I'll check if there is a multi-quote option on phpbb, but I doubt it if it is not already visible.

There is a multi-quote option available in fact and its always been there :s_biggrin

You just do a reply, and then scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see previous posts and you can click "quote" on the one you want, then repeat as needed, and you get something like this ....

Thanks Hoovie. On another forum (not the one you may be thinking of) multiquote is next to quote which is why I asked.

Well, this one is so far tucked down I never knew it was there. I have seen the kind of option and positioning you speak of (can't remember which forum) and TBH, I just could never get it to work.

Anyways, it's there for those who want it Billybob
