And then there is intentionally misrepresenting the statements of fellow TeaChatters. That's always fun and can make you a lot of friends.

I promise to never try to tunnel quote.
Try as you might, sometimes it just happens ... like flattening those poor pedestrians.


YOU JUST QOUTE THE LAST POST AND ADD TO IT, ALL THE NAMES ARE ADDED BY THE SYSTEM. YOU DON'T DO IT. JUST HIT THE QUOTE BUTTON FOR THIS POST AND ANSWER ME UNDERNEATH, AND YOU WILL SEE.



Like this?


Yep.


SOMETIMES USING ALL CAPS HELPS AS WELL. :twisted:

Victoria wrote:Here's another tip - If you want to quote several people in one post -

Right click the quote button of the first person you want to quote and open it in a new window, or a new tab.

Then the next person and so on, all in different windows.
So at this point you would have say 3 "post a reply" windows open.

Then just use the reply to open your new post and you then can copy and paste each of the other quotes into your new post, and reply to each underneath each one.


Thanks Victoria, you answered what I was trying to do. I didn't know about right clicking on "Quote" :D :D

Hey, neither did I. Dang, that's cool!

Well, in all modesty, I have to agree about that one, except for the bite part. I think you may be a little weird, fella.

It's an honor to have you visit, Sir. I didn't know you were a member of TeaChat, though I'm not sure I can endorse your candidate. Maybe we could run him for V-P.

Don't worry, rodstnmn, she's got me roaring too.

OK, Ms Smarty Pants, how can I get a table into a TeaChat post? I got the rating of several teas from several tasters and want to summarize them in a neat post. But I can't figure out how to make a table in TeaChat. Any thoughts, Ms S-P?
