    Default Multi-Quoting?

    I see one of the new features added was multiquoting.

    How is this used most effectively? I just tried to click on it one time to see what it did...and it didn't seem to do much...

    Is there something I'm not doing right?

    This is a test of the plain old quoting.

    This is post #5. Still attempting to try to figure out how multiquoting works. Personnally I have never tried it until now but if the name of the feature implies that you can quote multiple posts than what is needed first to make more post to this thread and then try things out.

    Still not done with the testing but one thing I have noticed is how does one unselect a post that has been selected for multiquote. So far the only way to do it just simply edit out the quote when you post it, which is the case for post #4 of this thread.

    To generate these quotes I pressed the multiquote button on post #1, then on post #10 and then on post #4. Then pressed the reply and plus note that the quotes got generated in the order I pressed the multiquote button.

    Also note that for each of the quoted section there is a blue arrow next to the name. If you click on that arrow it will take you to the post in question. How this works is that the quote tag has this now:

    QUOTE=username;postid

    where:
    username is the name of the user of the quote.
    postid is the number of the post that HawaiiThreads assigns to a post.

Hopefully this will cut down on people posting six consecutive replies in an attempt to respond to six different posts. However, as always, quote with care. Please quote only relevant portions of posts and not entire posts, and please watch your quote and /quote tags. Deleting either will break your quote. Want to experiment? Here's a good thread to practice in.
    Ahhh, the multiquote button is a toogle. That being the case, normally this button is colored blue (and to be honest it's barely noticable). If you click on the multiquote button it turns red or orange. If you click on it a second time it goes back to being blue.

    If you are quoting a post from another thread that post will not initially show up when you edit it but there is a line below the edit window that says you have selected a post from another thread and it will allow to add it in the edit window.

    Just confirming that the order of how you pick your posts determines the how the quotes get generated.

    I like multi-quoting because this way allows you to reply to several posts all at once as opposed to having to go back and find each one to reply to!

    Another BB I frequent upgraded to VB Version 3.61 not too long ago and honestly to me it didn't really seem like just a big difference besides multi-quoting and the fact that I was able to see how full my PM box was % wise. I'm a moderator on that site -- and to me more of the new version features are admin-related stuff.

    Default Quoting multiple posts in a single post

    How do you do that? I can only quote the one I click the quote function on... but the others I can only cut and paste. But theres no linking the quote to a poster.

    I know can because I seen some posts like that... but I no can. Thanks.

    Default Re: Quoting multiple posts in a single post

    I figured how to do that from another message board site.
    As the link above states on how to do it. It very easy and if you are at home at your computer its easier to multi quote other users on a given thread.
    I have 2 windows open at the same time and one windows has to be your intened reply and the other window is pasting other quotes from other users.

    Default Re: Quoting multiple posts in a single post

    On this board, the button next to the "quote" one is a "multi-quote" selector. No need for a second window.
