    Quote & Multi-quote Feature

    Many forum users know & use the forum Quote feature. It's super-helpful to know which post (or posts...) are being addressed.

    But did you know there was a way to quote multiple posts? Look for a small button found at the lower-right corner of a post - it looks like a quotation mark in a dialog bubble with a plus sign. Click on it and it and the plus sign changes to a check mark. Select another post in the same manner, then choose Reply With Quote - the selected posts will be included in your reply.

    I learned something today.

    I will add that I (& many others) removed some of a person's quote so that they know what particular part I am referring too.

    I use that alot, but try to avoid trimming so much of a post that it loses context.

    I haven't used the multi-quote much. I only learned about it somewhat recently. But I can see it's usefulness. Before I would visit the relevant posts to copy the text needed. This is faster.

    I never knew about multi-quote before so I can definitely see the usefulness of it. Nice!

    Its a useful feature I used back when MangaFox was still a thing. Easy way to communicate with multiple people with one post.
