Quoting articles, other websites and threads related to your post
is a major way to make your thread stand out and look professional. Many
people have seen sections of posts where a Box contains the quotation of information from other sources that supports the authors post. So lets make
Brackets [ ] are used to enclose commands used on boards like ATS, brackets are very important.
A Quotation is built like this (without the spaces in between on the commands)
[ quote ]
Body of Text
[ / quote ]
The word "quote" tells the program what the command is about.
The "/" tells the program to 'end' the command, so reading it in order it would say "[ quote ]" Do a quotation box and fill it with everything
leading up to the "[ / quote ]" End Quote command. Remember, no spaces in the commands, otherwise the program will not recognise them.
