Posting a reply with quote

Post by Al Donald » Mon Apr 04, 2005 20:40

Can you help please:
What is the correct procedure for posting a reply with quote?
The one I just tried didn't come out the way I expected, i.e. like all the others! It must be me... finger trouble probably :roll:
Thanks

It's fairly straightforward (once you know how :wink:):

Primarily, it's done by clicking on the "quote" button of the post you wanted to reply to/quote. You'll find more details here: http://www.bristolnomads.org.uk/phpBB/f ... e=bbcode#4

This is part of the description of BBCode - a means of applying html-like tags to BB posts to facilitate a certain degree of formatting of posts. For a full description of BBCode tags, click the "BBCode" link in the "Options" cell - just below your text window when creating a new post.

sense of bonding

Post by dro » Tue Nov 29, 2005 18:15

I give up too!!!!

feel a great bond with Al

cos i can not get anything at all to work
After saying this must admit I have not really tried very hard

While I am on line thought I should add that I agree with Graham
I also am too lazy to type Graham Utteridge so DRO will have to suffice

Thinking about it I am also too lazy to type Albert Bottomface ,Caradog ap Caswallon Fawr and Cedric Bumfluff.
BUT did not realise it until I read Grahams entry.
Amazing eh!!

As to the type of member allowed on the forum
Too late to close the stable door I am already there !!

By the way there seem to be a lot of accidents on the bikes these days
You must all be cycling too slowly!!

If I do not see you in Barry this weekend (unlikely looking at weather report)
A very merry Xmas to you all and an extremely happy New Year
