Another way is to not click the reply button but rather click the top right Quote icon of their message.GeoffB wrote:Then, while writing your message in the edit window, you can scroll down to the "Topic review" panel below your draft text and then scroll down within that using the slider bar on the right to see previous posts in the topic. When you find the second one you want to quote, just click on the quote button against it, and it too will be inserted into your draft message.
that appears in your message.

-What do the various scrolling text circle icons stand for. Some scroll, some don't, some are red, some are black. What does the star or arrow in the cricle mean? What does the orange box mean.
Most of these I can answer but a couple I can't so maybe if someone can make one comprehensive post that would be great.
- when you're replying to post, what are these options Code, List, List= ,[*], img, URL and how are they used?
You're right zeroeffect, clicking the orange box ( just to the right of the circle) takes you to the first post on that thread you haven't read.. And by extension, the fact there is an orange box means there are new posts since your last visit to the thread.The orange box takes you to the first unread post of the thread????
Something doesn't make sense to me...if the circle is red, than there are new posts...so, you will never see an orange box by a black circle, right? and the orange square would be redundant to the red circleHans W wrote:The orange box ( just to the right of the circle) means there's a post on that thread you haven't read.The orange box takes you to the first unread post of the thread????
The white numbered boxes, if there are any, indicates the number of pages of post. Click on the highest numbered page to go
directly to the last (ie most current) posts.
Hello Hans, I know that if you press Subscribe you get an email notification when there has been a new post in the topic, I've not used Bookmark myself though.Hans W wrote:Question
At the very bottom of the thread page, below POSTREPLY, what do the Subscribe and Bookmark options mean and do?
Thanks zeroeffect and GeoffB. I didn't know that and what a great and convenient tip! I'll edit my post.GeoffB wrote: I agree with zeroeffect's interpretation of the orange box, by the way.
