What do you write tto make a quote? Not the kind that say someone's name, but the one that just says quote.

To quote without a name, just copy and paste the text you want. Highlight it, then click the quote button. Or type [ quote ] on the left and [ /quote ] on the right (but without spaces inside the brackets)

Example:
Code: Select all
[quote]What do you write tto make a quote? Not the kind that say someone's name, but the one that just says quote.[/quote]

Another thing that you can do with quotes is to insert the name of the source you are using. I used to think you could only quote forum members, but you can quote anyone.

For example, to quote CNN.com, write [ quote="CNN.com" ]put your text here[ /quote ], (don't put the spaces inside the brackets when you actually do it) and it should look like this:
CNN.com wrote:Leonid meteor shower nears peak.

Meh, it doesn't need to be locked. It's not doing anything wrong.
