How do I do those cool little white boxes to quote someone?

Go to the post you would like to quote and hit the “quote” button in the top right corner of the post. It will open a new post window with the quoted words. You may edit the quote, but be sure not to take away the coding.

You can also quote manually by typing:

Code: Select all

[quote]the text you want to quote[/quote]
or by typing:

Code: Select all

[quote=“name”]text you want to quote[/quote]


For example, if I wanted to quote myself, I would type:

Code: Select all

[quote="redbaron"]FW is AWESOME![/quote]
would look like this:
