I'm just learning how to cut and paste a quote.

quote:
miracle

1137, from O.Fr. miracle, from L. miraculum "object of wonder" (in Church L., "marvelous event caused by God"), from mirari "to wonder at," from mirus "wonderful," from *smeiros, from PIE *(s)mei- "to smile, be astonished" (cf. Skt. smerah "smiling," Gk. meidan "to smile," O.C.S. smejo "to laugh;" see smile). Replaced O.E. wundortacen, wundorweorc. The Gk. words rendered as miracle in the Eng. Bibles were semeion "sign," teras "wonder," and dynamis "power," in Vulgate translated respectively as signum, prodigium, and virtus. First record of miraculous is from 1502.

You did it!

If you want anything in bold , you use a "b" instead of the word "quote" but still inside the same brakets.
You can also do this type of letter by using the letter "i", like this:

Hello, how are you


If you want to bold inside a quote, you do the qoutes on the outside and then the bold on the inside, it won't work the other way around.

like this [quote][b]......

It is hard to explain without actually trigering the actions and then you won't see how it is done.

For a url link, you put the "url" inside the brakets and for an image you do "img" inside the brakets.
Don't forget to use the "/" on teh second portion of the code.

I can explain better if you want me to....

NAM, thanks! I wondered how people were getting that bold type. I figured my primitive computer was the problem.

It took me a few tries before I finally got it.

Use the square brackets..[ and ] and write the word QUOTE in caps between them. Start a new line beneath that for what you're quoting and end it with /QUOTE between the two square brackets..[ and ].


Hope that makes sense, Unmoved.

Like this:

{quote}blah, blah, blah{/quote}

but instead of using this : "{" you use this bracket "["

To work with the other options you change the word quote to whatever kind of result you want.
Bold= b
Italics= i
Image= img
Url= url

*Actually Nelly it took me several months to realize that myself... hee..hee..
Sadly, Randall probably spent alot of time putting it together to make things easier for all of us.

Wishfull thoughts:
Now if only he would design an area for us to post out astro charts to, hmmm?

Hi everybody! When I checked my e-mail, I was amazed to discover so many replies to a post titled Ignore This! Then I logged on and started reading. The longer I read the harder I laughed. Especially your last comment BR! I'm glad I'm not the only one who took awhile to figure out the quote thing!

Love to All

Thanks to you too Skyhawk for this thread.

Ooooooh.... watch out people! my next post will be like a freakin Picasso! there will be hearts, and all the frills! And I will be quoting everyone!!

BR - Yes, telling me to ignore something is like telling to pay attention to it. i know, I tried to ignore it, but decided that it was a right deliberate invitation not to.

Unmoved~Well if you have the tools, why not use them?!
besides it helps us communicate better in here, since we can not read body language.

Hi MD81. I believe if you click on "contact us" and send Randall an e-mail, he can contact the other person and ask if they are willing to let you have their e-mail address. Then y'all can go from there.

Very possible Moondreamer. Try asking this question in a separate thread. The people who know for sure may not be reading it in here because it's titled "Ignore this!"
