Default Quoting

I've never used the function at the with the 2 quotation marks. When I click on it it just goes red. I believe that it's to isolate passages from a message that you can reply to without clicking on 'quote' and inserting a reply?

Could someone explain how it works please?

Yes I know I've been on here a while now but I've just never used it. It just goes red and I can't work out what it does?

Thanks

But you can only quote (I think it's) two posts without using cut and paste.

So " mark one, "Mark two, reply.

Nope, you can quote several, I just tested it.

I believe you can also multi-quote across threads, as they're saved in your cookies.

Ok that must be a fairly recent change, and yes you can post across threads.
