Default Suggestions for Easier OB Navigation

Has there been a particular problem you have run into while navigating the OB?

In order to make the OB as user-friendly as possible , I am posing this question to all members
to see if there is anything that needs or may need explanation to members especially
newbies ..
If you check out the forum- About The Board .. http://www.orchidboard.com/community/about-board/
A few stickys have been made as easy access answers to
some basic questions or difficulties that may arise in the use of the OB ..

For example -
Tips for posting photos on Orchidboard
Contacting Moderators or the Administrator
Difficulty in PMing or Emailing Another Member

I am looking to create and provide guidelines ONLY to members and would appreciate any suggestions.

(Disclaimer : The suggestions will be considered first between the moderators and the administration.
Please don't be upset if your suggestion is not acted upon.
We will do our best to accommodate all concerns but for any number of reasons, some suggestions may not be addressed.)
THank you!

Perfect timing! I do need your help with something.
How do you quote several people in one post? I've been opening multiple OB tabs and then copy pasting quotes into my post. It's not a very quick method. There must be an easier way. It will probably be something simple that I have been missing all along!

Feel free to move this question elsewhere if it doesn't belong in this thread. At the moment I don't have any suggestions, but I'll think about it Dorothy!

Camille - I am not aware of any shortcuts for that ..
I have seen that many answer each quote individually instead of combining them into one thread ..
Perhaps Sue knows ..

Sorry to say I think that's the only way to do it
If there is another way, I'm not aware of it.

Well, you are allowed to cut and paste as Camille does it. Since this isn't a daily thing (it's not, right?) then perhaps that's the best way?

For now, it is...but Camille was wondering if there was an option to do it another way that she might have been missing

I was just wondering if that short cut existed here (I'm lazy!), since I have seen it on other forums. Underneath the post that is being written there are the previous posts listed (like in 'go advanced' here on OB) and next to each one you can click on 'quote' to add it to the post.
So everyone else who does it must have to do it manually like I do. It's not a big problem since I rarely do multi quote posts anyways!

What does the 'Multi-Quote' option do?

I've just tried it and I think it is what you are looking for.
It's the icon next to the quote one with an image of like two pages. You press it on all the messages you want to quote, then press the quote button on any of the selected ones and it includes a quote of each one.

Or am I missing something in what you are trying to do?

Thank you Rosie! That's exactly what I was talking about!! I don't know why I never thought to try those icons. In fact, it never crossed my mind that they might have a purpose!
