How do I quote part of or maybe only one sentence of a post ? I have tried to highlight the part or sentence, i've tried to copy and paste but nothing seem's to work. If I highlight a sentence and then click on quote, I get the whole post. I'm confused on how to do this small but aggrevating task.
I usually do it by quoting the whole post and then going in and editing out the parts I don't need for the quote before hitting the submit button.

Yeah, I've tried that too, Danny, but have you tried to Edit out the part's of one of your post's you don't want ? LOLOL
When I do like you said, I never get the box line's around the original post i'm quoting, plus I have to go back and insert the name. There's got to be a way to do it..... I think.
I've run into problems with that, too. Here's what I find works:
- Go back and delete the parts of the quote that you don't want.
Ok,, It work's that way,,, I highlighted the part's I didn't want to quote then deleted it.
Just seems' like there's an awfull lot of highlighting to a Danny post.
It work's fine now just by highlighting what's going to be deleted and then hit Delete. Although it would be nice if you could just highlight what you wanted to quote then hit the quote tab in the box. Would save a lot of foolin around trying to save what you want to keep, especially in looooooooooong post's.
When you post, at the top of the text box there is an icon that looks like a quotation mark. When it is highlighted, what you type ends up in the blue quote box.
I hit enter and then highlighted this text and clicked the quote icon.
When I am finished making a quotation, I click the quote icon again to remove my type from the blue box. So you can cut and paste, but you have to use the quote function to put it in a box.
It would be great to have a seperate folder called the LIBRARY FOLDER where FM could put all this kind of stuff, articles, storys, even help and instructions like this.
Yes it would..... I also have another problem, if i'm trying to find a previous post that may contain something someone said or the content's of some usefull information.
In the search box I type in some of the word's contained in the post and hopefully it will lead me to a couple article's that may have the information. It's futile, It never work's for me. I don't know how some of the member's can dig up a article from month's back and comment on it.
I'm not really fond of the search on Simple:Press
I try and try with all the different settings and it takes me forever to find exactly what I'm looking for.
Have you tried google advanced search? http://www.google.com/advanced_search
Try the "narrow your results by site or domain" feature: type http://www.fiddlerman.com into the "site or domain" box.
