@swamidass How do I use the quote function?
See here: it is very easy: Discourse New User Tips and Tricks.
Hit “reply” and you’ll first get an empty block.
Then cursor up and select the section you wish to quote. You’ll see a gray block with QUOTE appear over the highlighted text. Click the QUOTE block and the highlighted text will be transferred to the new comment block.
Be careful as trying to make quotes which include previous quotes often screws up the attribution name
You also have an EDIT feature if things go wrong which they often do.
You can also select the text you wish to quote and then hit Reply.
