Ya maybe he means that little button down there next to edit.

In that case you just check the posts you want to quote than click a post with "post with quote" and it puts all those quotes in there.

But is it that, or quoting multiple posts?
Yes! Spud! That way.

And also is it possible to only pick up part of the quote and still multi? Like, you'd pick up all of one post and then just my Yes! line.

Well, to multi quote, you just press the little button next to the reply with quote button on the posts you want to multi quote, then on the final post you want to quote, press reply with quote, however, you can't just select a bit of a post, you have to edit it manually.

Show Off!!! ;-)
All you need to do is to click on the little quote box with a plus in the bottom corner on the posts you want to quote. Once you have selected the posts, hit the reply with quote button and they will all be in there.
