Quoting and outputting fixed-width text

Quoting text in replies

There are two ways you can quote text, with a reference or without.

When you utilize the Quote function to reply to a post on the board you should notice that the post text is added to the message window enclosed in a [quote=""][/quote] block. This method allows you to quote with a reference to a person or whatever else you choose to put! For example to quote a piece of text Mr. Blobby wrote you would enter:

[quote="Mr. Blobby"]The text Mr. Blobby wrote would go here[/quote]

The resulting output will automatically add "Mr. Blobby wrote:" before the actual text. Remember you must include the quotation marks "" around the name you are quoting, they are not optional.

The second method allows you to blindly quote something. To utilize this, enclose the text in [quote][/quote] tags. When you view the message it will simply show the text within a quotation block.
