New to The Sand Trap? Little Things Members Expect and Ask of Fellow Members

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

1. Multi-Quote

It grinds people's gears when you respond, minutes apart, to multiple users with multiple posts. This forum has the ability to let you respond to multiple posts inside of one post. It's called multi-quote, and it's useful, and virtually required. You can read more about it here: http://thesandtrap.com/a/discussion-forum-tutorial#user_replywithaquotation

 

Quote (http://thesandtrap.com/a/discussion-forum-tutorial#user_replywithaquotation):

Reply with a Multi-Quote

Replying with a multi-quotation allows you to respond in line to another poster and include context to your replies or to reply to multiple posters within the same reply. 

 

  1. Navigate to the posts you would like to respond to.
  2. At the bottom of each post, toward the right, you will see the "Multi" button with two sets of quote marks.  Click here on each of the posts you would like to quote.
  3. When you are satisfied with your selections, click the "Quote" button on one of the posts you would like to quote, or the "Post a Reply" button toward the bottom.
  4. The text editor will open with the posts you have quoted.  When you are finished replying to the posts, click the "Submit Post" button at the bottom of the editor.

 

2. Embed Videos

This forum will embed YouTube and Vimeo videos, and we strongly encourage you to embed videos of these types. Just click the "video" or "film" icon in the toolbar, paste the URL to the video in, and click "Submit" to embed the video in your post.

 

3. Search

Please search for an existing topic before starting a new one. Even if a thread is years old, we'd rather you bump the old thread with a new post than to start a new, virtually identical thread. This forum has been around for almost a decade - there are a lot of topics.

 

4. Set an Avatar

You're sent a PM about this when you sign up. If you don't set one, one will be set for you when you hit between 10-25 posts, typically.

 

5. Add your Name

I think he is asking if there is a way to only quote a specific sentence within a response instead of the whole thing, and if that is the case then I think that would e a legitimate question..

As far as I know you have to quote the whole thing and if you want to quote a sentence you will then have to edit accordingly.. I hope I answered your question.

I think it's great that you are actively trying to learn how to do this as it eases how people read your posts!

I was asking about the specific sentences and have discovered that highlighting helps grab the specific texts so my format can be less tedious!:beer: Though my content, may be slightly disagreeable to some!:drool:

 

 

I still haven't gotten the signature yet-cannot find the "3/4 of the way down" spot to insert!  Rome was not built in a day so it's ok!

 

Kind Regards,

When quoting, another option is to simply delete everything in the quote except for the part of the post to which you're responding. Quoting an entire post can be unnecessary; for example, if I were just replying to the first part of your post, my quote would look like the following, instead of your entire post:
