Good morning....


I'm afraid you will not like my thoughts....                            


In the old beta community the quote feature was useful, because if you clicked on the members name you where taken to the quoted post. Thus you could see the quote in context. In our new community you can input two quotes (by copy and paste) the third quote does not format correctly. Now when you click on a quoted members name you are taken to their profile. As a result I see very little reason to use it and I've been doing this instead;


Jalus: Hi All,


 I give up! grrrrrr 


 Teknmage: I am sorry you are frustrated.


  Jalus: How do you post one reply and


 quote more than one member?


Teknmage: This is how I've been doing it. I have been told that Beliefnet is looking into the quote feature, both I and a number of other host have expressed our unhappiness with the quote system. This community is not set up to do multi quote, and even quoting just one members post more than twice gives unexpected results. Sorry.

I used the quote function and copied post with coding, then opened a new post at the thread and pasted there.  Then I opened another tab......see below Dah's quote.

I did this by using the first quote and copied with coding, and pasting into a new post at thread.  Then I opened a second tab with the thread and copied Dah's posts with the coding and pasted below the first quote.  It's not as good as the multiple quote, but it is a get around.
