    Why do forum responses now contain the previous post? neutral It's making me dizzy. roll Can we control for it individually?

      If you reply to a post (hit the reply back button)-- from the post, it quotes the post you are replying to.

      If you reply to a post and hit the reply button and click on the blue link "import and edit the quote" you can select a part of the quote to appear above your reply like this.

    If you simply  "Post a reply" from the big grey button at the bottom, no quote appears.  It is a the choice of the replying person-- though some people may think that the rebly back arrow is the only way.
    If you are rreplying to a person wo has posed several steps back-- I think it is useful to quote (if the item is'nt too long.)

      I hit this all the time to reply to a specific person and there's never been that "Rochelle wrote" box before. I'm so confused. I need a nap.

        You won't see it on your own post--- until you come back later to the page.

          You have to click the 'import and edit' link and delete the portion of text you don't want. 

        If you don't want any previous post repeated, which can be truly annoying after a super long post, simply click the black 'reply' button at the bottom right of the page.

    I think I hit something by mistake earlier. I've never seen this before.

    Top right of thread.

    "Threaded" or "Chronological". You must have hit "Chronological" by mistake. Hit "Threaded".

    You're welcome, Jan.  I didn't know if you were used to chronological or threaded.  I always use chronological simply because threaded drives me crazy.  It seems easier to follow a thread in chronological order, but the constant repeat of posts can be annoying as well.

      Yup, thanks. Thread's for me.
