    That works, but i normally hit the "Insert Quote" link in the Topic Summary on the reply page.
    ??? Why would you go thru all that when there is a quote button?
    :-\

    What trouble?

    I hit reply, then insert quote....
    Plus the copy & paste of the quote you want to insert. That's 3-4 steps you take instead of hitting the quote button & accomplishing the same thing in 1.

    I only had to do that in recent days.

    There is no need to copy and paste when using the "Insert Quote" in the Topic Summary on the reply page.

    At least there didn't used to be...

    Because you click the link that is next to the text you want to quote. We are talking about two different pages. I don't use quick reply.

    Look at the reply page...

    Beneath the "Post" and "preview" buttons, there is a topic summary...

    See purple links in the top right corners of those boxes.

    That is waht i used to use.

    I never use "Quick Reply". I either use the reply page or the quote button. On my reply page there are no other options other than "Post" & "Preview"....nothing!

    Re: I can't quote people in forums...

    There is no "Topic Summary" if you scroll down past that?

    Weird.

    It's been there since I can remember.

    Webby seemed to know what I was talking about:

    Oh no shit.
    I have never even looked at that button....but it should be a result of the same problem.
    Stupid Web 2.0 stuff.

    It's probably something that's turned on or off in "Preferences"

    Good call... That's probably the case.

    At any rate I found out how you pro's do it, and it works just fine.
