    Technology challenged here foks.
    I want to reply using parts of one post and then parts of another post. How do I do that?

    You can click on the third icon along the bottom of the post which will add the post to your reply. Selecting more than one post puts each post in your reply along with the proper opening and closing quote tags. If you do this then the icon turns red for each post you have chosen.

    The third icon will quote the entire post.
    Easiest, as I only recently found out, is to highlight the text you want and click "q-quote", then do the same with the next post, as I have done just now.

    How bizarre, I never noticed that before. I usually just highlight the selection with the mouse and then CRTL-C then CRTL-V and add the quote tags myself.

    ^ You can't.
    You should have clicked the "Go Advanced" button , then you get the option of "Preview post".

    Just did. Not impressed.

    By the way, what other benefits are there to being a 'member'?

    there's the flashing thread.
    DD's trips around the short term bars and a few name calling threads.

    besides that, not a lot really.......unless you count the kudos factor as a benefit.
