I like this feature when I read the forum posts but canโ€™t figure out how to do it. Instructions anywhere? Thanks.

On the top right of the post is the word 'Quote'.
Press that and it gives you a reply box which includes that post.
You can delete some of the text within the [quote] [unquote] sections and even break it into segments by copying the [quote] [unquote] bits and pasting them in the appropriate places.
However it must always have them at the start and finish of any quote.
I hope that makes sense...

This works well on the general 'computer' site but I find it hard to 'quote' on the mobile version. The 'quote' option doesn't appear. Peter?

Yes I noticed it isnโ€™t on the mobile version.

It was mostly for space reasons. I've had a look at it and decided it's better to get rid of the "messaging" icon than the Quote link, since you can still do that fine by clicking through a member's profile whereas quoting is difficult.

So you should now see the Quote link on mobile as well. :)
