I see the quote button (used it) and know the BBcode for quoting,
but how do you get it to auto-insert the nickname of the person your responding to?

Thanks ahead of time,

It took me a while to notice this myself, months in fact, but to get the members name in a quote you have to click on the quote button that is actually in the top right hand corner of that perticular post, and remember to remove any parts that aren't required so that you don't end up with an excessive quote warn
hope this helps

If you use the the 'quote' button on the top right of someones post it adds "Originally posted by Regenmacher" in italics in the first line after the quote tag. Make sure when using this however that you edit out the quote to only include the relevant aspects of the post and so forth.

Thanks Pantha, I didn't notice that little button til know.

I'd throw you a steak cause your looking a bit thin,
but alas it would only be composed of electrons. I'll say thanks again.

Thanks also Kano.
