If you are having trouble finding "Insert quotes" button (which sometimes happens), see this graphic:
Thanks for these Earlene - I like a good screen grab, being a visual person.

Could someone explain to me exactly how to reply to multiple posts in a single post rather than clog up a thread with separate replies. I am guilty of this and want to learn the correct way to do it. Thanks for any help.

Ok maybe this way? practice makes perfect. 👍🏼💻🤞🏼
Bumping this post up as a reminder. Could those putting up quoted multiple posts to different people, put them in one post, please. I'm still merging lots of these in each forum every day, it would save me lots of time. Post 2 above tells you how it's done.

Thanks 🙂.

Just a test.

I've also had a problem with this! Normally I copy paste from the reply on a person's post, not the most efficient way.

I have chosen a few posts via DeeAnna's instruction (post #2 above) and when I click on "Insert quotes" this pops up (click on thumbnail to enlarge):


View attachment 54744

From there, posts can be removed or re-arranged. Sometimes posts from other threads might show up on the list, so remove those that are not appropriate to your reply. Then follow the rest of DeeAnna's instruction.
Thank you for the instructions. I accidentally just found this out but if you hit "reply" on whatever post you want to quote and then do it again on another post y multiquote automatically. I think it works within the same thread though (and maybe page).

Find one of the messages you want to reply to. Click the +QUOTE link in the lower right corner of this message. Find another message and click the link for that message. And so on.

When you have them all selected, then go to the bottom where you normally type your reply. There will be a button INSERT QUOTES. Click on it. Follow the directions to rearrange the quotes if you like. The selected quotes will be added to your reply.

Note there is a special code [ QUOTE ] added to the top of each message and a similar code [ / QUOTE ] added to the end of each message.

It's good etiquette to shorten the quoted message to just the part you want to reply to (as I have done above with your message). But don't erase the [ QUOTE ] and [ /QUOTE ] codes if you do edit.

To type your response to a message, find the code [ /QUOTE ] at the end of that particular message. Click right after the ending bracket ]. Press the ENTER key a time or two and type your reply.

When you're done, the structure of your message will look something like this --

[ QUOTE="Jersey Girl, post: 855685, member: 35400" ]​

[ /QUOTE ]​
Here's my reply....​
[ QUOTE="another person" ]​

[ /QUOTE ]​
And here's my second reply....​
I am also guilty of doing it and not knowing how to group quotes. heres my test
I think I’ve got it!

I’m on an iPad most of the time but I’ll keep thin in mind when on my laptop.


Success! Old dogs can be taught new tricks! Lol
Ok here I go
