    How to use the Multi-Quote function?

    If I want to respond to more than one quote of a message, I now click the Quote button and copy and paste the opening quote tags with the author's name in it, and the closing tag.

    I would think that the button Multi-Quote makes that easier, but how do I use that? If I click it, nothing happens?

    Its hard to see since the colour is almost identical. Just click the multi-quote of each post you want to select, and they populate in order.
    Best to use the "Post Reply" after that; I think it works with the quick reply, but I don't believe you see them.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)

    OK, got it. Too bad, though, it's not a function with which one can respond to multiple statements of one post. I have seen on another forum this function: highlight-select a portion of the post, click Quote, and only that portion is then put in the reply form, inside quote tags with the original author's name in it.

    Would that be possible here, too?

    I suppose this would be possible with a plugin or something. But given that this version of vBulletin isn’t the most recent and the new owners have no immediate intention to upgrade I wouldn’t hold my breath for a feature like this.

    I won't, even though I quit smoking some 8 years ago, so I should be able to do that for quite a long time...

    However, this forum being one of the three most used and visited (I am guessing the latter), at least the HTML/CSS part, I would think that the owners would have a moral obligation to do just that - upgrade and make it easier for the users.
