    Multiple Quotes

    I frequent another forum that appears to use the same software as this one. In that forum a poster can easily select multiple quotes to reply. For example, if a person wants to reply to two separate posts on a topic at the same time, they go to the earlier of the two posts and select the "Multi-Quote" button. Then they go to the second post and select the "Quote" button. This results in both posts getting quoted in the reply section.

    This would be a useful feature to add to the BOC forum if it is available.

    Correct we do not have the feature, and I think it’s turned on.
    I’ll put in a Vbulletin ticket and see what’s up, thanks!

      If you respond within the quote (as I often do in blue font) you'll need some type of characters outside of the html [ quote ] brackets.
      I use a series of periods, but it could be anything.

      I agree... very useful. It would be nice to have this feature back!

      It can be done if you're willing to quote one member's post and then high-light the text and the HTML code.
      While high-lighted, cut to clipboard (Ctrl + X).
      Then browser back and quote the other member's post.
      Next, paste the first one (Ctrl + V) above the second one ..... and there ya go!

      It's somewhat of a PITA, but it works!
