Been trying to figure out how to do quotes so they display correctly. This is my attempt to prove it. If covered in a video I have not watched or not wanted or if it didn't work, feel free to delete it!

OK Brett, not quite there.

For long chain quotes... I thought creating a new reply with just the text wanted to quote in the quotes would be cool.

Doesn't look like I got it quite right though.

Off to graduation!

Cheers!

I SUCK at the quote thing so don't feel bad lol Even when I preview one, I'll submit it and it's either got no quotes or seven sets of quotes confused.gif

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

If you click on the "quote" button above the box you're actually typing into you'll see the opening and closing "blockquote" tags appear. Anything you put in between those tags will be quoted.

Also, if you hit the "Preview" button which is right next to the "Submit" button below the box you're typing into you'll see what your comment is going to look like when you submit it. So use "preview" to preview any comments you put.

Thanks Brett. Perhaps a phone vs. desktop thing? If you look at some of the long-running discussions which I have been a part of the quote within the quote within the quote (reply with reply to reply) gets really messy. Preview is often enough to get me to abandon it and make a new reply without using the quote button. That was the issue I was trying to fix...

No, it's identical on both.

You don't necessarily have to keep quoting everything everyone says. I usually just quote someone if I'm addressing a specific statement, like I did in this comment. Otherwise, if you're just continuing the conversation you don't necessarily have to quote everything.

Yes, to clarify, it works the same, but if you are cutting parts out, etc., then it can be a pain on the phone, but that is due to the phone. The site works exactly the same.
