Dalfie I was looking to understand how to put the quote from previous posts in the box and then post below it...I am a very slow learner.....help

 :-D


Now I understand....


1. Go to the post you want to quote.  Click on "reply with quote". The quote will appear in your posting box with some tags around it.... [quote ] will be at the beginning, and [/quote ] will be at the end. Simply put, [quote ]  means begin quote box, [/quote ] means end quote box.

2. Type your response AFTER the [/quote ] tags.


If you want to put something, like a Bible text, etc in a quote box, then you just type [quote ] at the beginning, type the text, then type [/quote ] at the end to end the box.


no matter what tag you use, without the slash means to begin doing whatever the tag means, and the slash added to it means to end it.

Of course, there should be no spaces between "[" and "quote" and "]". I just put some in so that you could see the tags, and not just a bunch of random quote boxes in my answer.


Did that help any?  If not, I will try to explain it another way!

Pamela, on the Post Reply page there is also an icon above the smilie with the afro that is a quote in a box - click it to get an instant [quote ] [unquote] without having to find the right brackets & slashes.

Seriously, I tried to delete some temporary files the other day and my whole computer froze up.  Once I tried to change my desk top pic and that froze things up too.  Yipes... I guess with an old computer some stuff just gets corrupted and doesn't work right anymore.  I think mine has arthritis.

Yes, that is true. Computers do get corrupted and slow down with time, which is why they need to be reformatted from nearly scratch every so often - especially if you use them on the web, or use programs that don't like each other.

Now, put me on a Mac, and I can lock the whole thing up in about... 10 minutes. I did this at work once years ago.  My boss was so unimpressed that she had to call in a repair technician to fix it... she forbade me to do anything other than the file she opened for me!  Honest! I didn't lock it up on purpose! Macs just don't like me - its not the first time my presence has caused one to go crazy.

Dalfie,
I knew a person that could not wear a wrist watch as they would always run too fast or too slow but would be fine for everyone else. 
There are a few around that just hate waste and I'm one of them.  If I can hang on to something that can still have a bit of use and stall buying anything new I will. I had to replace my motherboard because the capacitors leaked and really messed things up.  Then, at one point, I did wipe everything off the computer and reinstall the whole system.  I think that was 2 years ago.  There are still two features that never did work right no matter what I did.  So, I know at some point I will have to join the rat race and buy a new one again.  I drive around an old clunker too because it still runs by God's grace!

I'm having the same problem, but only on my computer at work.  It doesn't do that here at home.  I've taken to posting in a MS Word document and then pasting it to the post reply.  Takes longer but is less frustrating.

After Avast updated and nuked both IZARC & Online Bible programs as trojans, all posting of both SDA forums bounces around and messes up edit / modify attempts after posting  :?

How do I fix it ?

Post by: Dalfie on December 08, 2009, 01:51:12 PM
Hmmmm... maybe try updating avast again. I seem to be finding online that Avast has already put out another update due to problems with it falsely identifying nonmalicious files.

The main description of the section includes audio files.  Other than clicking on links, how would I listen to audio files on this forum, and where are they ?
