I prefer to use the [img] tags instead of the attachment method.

First, put [img] then a full URL to an image, including it's extention, then a [/img] tag and you've got yourself an image!

The [img] tag will *not* work in every forum on this site. It'll work only in certain boards. The problem with [img] is that it could be used to hot-link from another site, which is most uncool. And there's no guarantee that the link will continue to be active. If it's taken down from the host site, it'll just be a broken link on this end. That's why we prefer to host images directly on DV Info Net -- just use the Manage Attachments button as Edward describes above. Thanks,

Ok, I'm foxed..."Multi Quote" has finally beaten me.

Can someone, anyone, please tell me how this "Multi Quote" button is supposed to work?

I've clicked, fiddled, clicked again, tab'd forward, backwards, upwards and downwards and the &*^%$ thing does nothing!

This dinosaur is obviously missing something, what the heck is it?

I click on it, hit "reply", go to the reply screen and I get one chance to use a quote.

After that, it's "program it yourself, chum" as all other options just bail me out of my reply for ever.

It's gotta work better than that, surely?

Help!

PS: Just to add insult to injury, I've just discovered this has ended up in the "How to post.....". Bugger. Guess it's just not my day!

Chris, when you click the multi quote dealie, it's marked with a red dot (or is it orange?). You do that for every poster you want to quote, then you can simply hit "post reply" and all the people you want to include as being quoted is there. Edit to taste. Voila!

HTH.
