No idea what you mean. I press "quote". There's your quote. Then I type a response. He it is. What am I missing?

Yup.

My guess is when the pop up window comes up, the cursor jumps into the quoted section... or somehow erases the [guote=ard] [/guote] commands..

I think the problem is when I want to respond to specific comments, then move to another comment.

This car had one female owner and has only 24,500 miles. I paid 36,000.

With 3 months of CPO left and all new Michelin's and drive belt I am happy with the price. Besides the three curb rashed rims (Too many Dunkin Donut drive throughs I think) This car looks virtually brand new and drives perfectly. When I first, just drove an M5 I found not much difference in power from my 540-6. But once I DROVE the M.......... Well I do not have to tell you what I found! I was hooked.

Congrats. Sounds like a great deal. Yeah, as an ex-540ist (who has nothing buy praise for the car), it's almost like our previous go-pedal stopped 3/4ths of the way to the floor.
Try this: go to this message up above, click on "edit"... replace the ">>>" with "[/quote]"....see what it does.

Yeah. Jack, you got it that time. Just remember, both the {QUOTE=Ben Carufel} at the beginning of the quote and the {/QUOTE} at the end of the quote have to be there for the bulletin board software to know how to put it into a shaded quote box. If you delete that last {/QUOTE} box, it just turns into a bunch of text and makes it hard to decipher what's the message and what's the quote.

and also, just FYI, you can reply to a whole string by copying multiple quotes... as long as there is a square box with a quote= then a /quote on either end of the text the board software will interpret that as a quote and display it as such... you can even play with the names as it just types the username in, doesn't look it up:

I just hit "quote". Don't know what happens next. In *this* case, since your two quotes will be seperated, they may not wind up with that white box around them. If so, I don't know how to fix that.
