    How Do You...

    Copy and paste a quote with th eoriginal poster's name in it and a tag to the original post?

    If I just hit the quote button, it doesn't drag all that info, I just get the text.

    When I hit the quote button, that information is included in the first quote tag.

    I still can't make it work. I feel like I'm 109.

    I'm not sure how to do it either.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Your quote has both the author and redirect on my end. So you are doing it right.

    Maybe it's a browser issue?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    There are two options. One is to choose "Quote" on the message and that should automatically do it. Second, on the reply form (whether on the Quick Reply or on the Advanced option (Go Advanced), there is a Square talk baloon (like in the comic books, but it's square).

    For instance, I'm typing this and when I'm done, I'll highlight it and then choose the Square Baloon above and it adds the quote function. When I put my cursor over it, it says "Wrap (Quote) tags around selected text"
