Or to post a link to just the reply you can copy the shortcut to the reply (Such as my reply before is post #7) http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...67&postcount=7

or copy and paste the address out of the address bar for the first page to the whole thread:

Here's the address bar:

If you want to copy just the post you can find post number in the blue bar of each post next to the scale. Just right click and click on "copy shortcut". Just paste that into the post or where ever you want to put it.

OR..if you copy the "[quote=somebody:***xx] at the start of the quotation

And then copy the"[/quote"] at the end you can reply in chunks to a quoted post.

And yet another great topic that may deserve sticky status.

Topics like this help less pc experienced members communicate more effectively on the forums..... Great topic minn.bill !!!
