how to quote posts

Just going off topic slightly, can somebody explain to this computer idiot how to post a Quote from previous replies? ie. how do you get it in the blue/grey box?

Copy the text you wish to quote into clipboard (in windows highlight text. right click, copy) in thread you wish to post. type opening square bracket, type the word quote. type closing square bracket, then paste text from clipboard (right click, paste) then end with square bracket, right slash (/) type word, quote,then square bracket . See screenshot

I'll leave it other contributors to show how to do it from Android or apple devices

The problem is that intuitive operating systems don't have manuals. Might be intuitive to the programmer but not to us
You've got the start square bracket round the wrong way on the ending quote on your post #12

If you are posting in the same thread, just click the Quote in the black box at the bottom right and type your reply after the text you are quoting

Or, you can hit the quote button at the bottom of the post you wish to quote. That will bring up a reply box with that text in it with the proper "tags".

If you want to add additional quotes from other emails, you can either do the same in a new tab, and then copying it into the first reply - or copying the text and then inserting the tags using the tags above you already can see as a guide.
