    I'm sure I'm missing something here. How do you quote multiple posts if they are on different pages?

    If you want to quote the last post on page 1 and the first quote on page 2 for example.

    I'd use the "quote me" feature. Highlight a portion of the first post, then click "quote me". That inserts the quote into a new blank reply post below the thread. Go there to the end of that quote and hit enter once or twice to reposition the cursor, then go fetch what you want from the second post.

    Blah blah blah.

    Get 'em from wherever in the thread...it might even work from a different thread, I've never tried that. Put in as many as you like, then finish up the post and hit "Post Reply". Rick
