    Quoting earlier message

    How do I quote all or part of an earlier message along with the member's name?

    Using just an Android phone screen.

      Doug Carpenter Sorry I can't help you on this one Doug, unfortunately I'm not familiar with the phone version of the forum, hopefully you will get an answer soon.

      I presume you can't see any little pen, quotation marks, flag or thumb up mini icons representing edit, quote, flag and like near any of your posts as you do on the laptop/tablet version? (obviously edit would only show on your own posts)

      I don't know if by "along with the member's name", you mean as I've tagged you at the start of this post? To do that, type @, immediately followed by the user's name - you should get predictive text options. xx

        HI Doug Carpenter

        I pressed the quote button that is on the bottom right of every message box

        Where there are 3 buttons/boxes

        1. quote
        2. flag
        3. Like

        I don't know if it is the same on the phone.

                    If you only want to part quote, just delete unnecessary text, making sure to keep both [quote boxes], one at the start of the text and one at the end. xx

                      Thanks DeeH and LindaB for explaining.

                      Here's a screenshot of where to find the quote button on a smart phone. Hope that helps!
