Hi, I have now added a really neat new feature to the Forum that allows you to write a new message that quotes what another author has said. That way people can see exactly clearly what you are referring to when you add your reply. It is very easy: just use the new "Reply quoting this message" button that is next to the "Write a reply" button.

As they say an image is worth a thousand words, so here is example of it working:

This is the original message in the example

And then below that, here is my response ......

What do you think? Useful isn't it?

Regards

Experimenting here; I had just tried to use this quoting feature, in my post about fluorite, but what I quoted [Les Presmyk] didn't appear in a separate white box, as others' have replies have. Perhaps it was because I deleted some of the lines in Les' message that I was quoted? I'll see what this one looks like when I post it.

You can delete lines Pete and let just the part you want to remark, but you need to do it very carefully. You should have always at the end of your message this line code:

[/quote]

and at the start this other line code:

[quote="Pete Modreski"]

As it is easy to delete inadvertently just some ] or [ , then the whole system it doesn't work.

On your case: https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=7655#7655 the final code is lost, that's why the system don't show well your tempt to display the Le's message properly.

Thank you, Jordi! I figured it was something like that, that I had done.
