When you find the second one you want to quote, just click on the quote button against it, and it too will be inserted into your draft message.
Another way is to not click the reply button but rather click the top right Quote icon of their message.
This takes you directly into PostReply mode with everything from that post copied as a quote.
Delete anything you don't want included in the quote, making sure you don't delete the quote tags.
Its a good idea to click the "Preview
" button before you click submit to see what your post will look like.
Finally, you can also go to any post , highlight and copy the text you want to quote and then come back to where you're writing your post, click "Quote" on the options list at the top and then paste in the copied text between the
that appears in your message.
