Default Forum help needed

Can someone help me with the following? (says he with red face)

1. how to include a photo from the DB in a forum post
2. how to reply to a post with multiple quotes

I had some notes on how to do this but I have lost them and can't for the life of me figure it out. :roll eyes:

Thanks!
Eugene

include photo:
[photoid=xxxxxx]
where xxxxxx is the number of the photo

reply: each post has a Quote button. to the right of that button is an "+ button. Click on that for each post you want to quote - you will see the button turn red. For the last post you want to quote, click on Quote and you will find the entire contents of each of the posts in your draft message. You can then cut down each quote to include only the material you want. Remember not to delete the "[/quote]" part of each quote, or things get muddled.

I routinely forget and so I routinely have to edit my message and put those back in.

I didn't even know how to multiquote. I always had 3 or 4 tabs open and was copying and pasting the quotes into the original reply.
