Posting a reply to a review

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

I would like to be able to see the actual review while I am posting a reply. It would be helpful to reference it from time to time while replying. Is that possible to do? Thanks!

You can quote it just like I just did.

Latest Review: The Other Kind of Smart by Harvey Deutschendorf

This seems kind of crazy, but when I want to just quote a paragraph out of someone's whole review, I click on quote marks (on the upper right side) and it copies everything, including their side information. I keep seeing other people's quotes where it looks more simple, showing their name and that it is a quote. I have tried to highlight what I want to copy, but it still copies everything.
If I highlight and then go to reply and use quotes, it won't include who I am quoting from. How can I just show quotes to exactly what I want to quote?

You would need to quote the whole post and edit out the parts you don't want. :tiphat:
If we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

We've all got light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.
