I don't have the answer to this, but have you seen the size of some signatures? :P (Not looking at anyone in particular... ;) )

Tables are what are typically used in signature bbcode to place objects to either side.

Oh ok, thanks. I didn't realize this was possible with bbcode. :blush:

I'm having trouble showing that multiple quotes come from member A, as I address each quote, followed by the same thing for member B. In particular the quote="memberA" post=number code. This goes first and that first quote needs to be wrapped in quote-/quote code. So the 2nd quote also needs its own quote-/quote and so on, right?

When quoting member B, I start the quote="memberB" post=number code, followed by quote-/quote references. But I get something wrong as the result

Yes. when something starts with quote= it has to end with /quote

So if you have (quote="Member A" post=144965) you have to end it with (/quote). that is when you can start typing. then if you want to add in another quote, from another member, you just put (quote="Member B" post=3564) and end that with (/quote) as well.

I'm not sure if that helps you at all

Its more basic...

Just need:

[quote="jestor"]  this is quote [/quote]

that makes:

jestor wrote: this is quote


That easier?

I seen you like to do this for more clarity. To do this, you just have to close out the quote by adding
[/quote]
to the end of the quote.

Then you have to start it up again by adding
[quote]
for the next section of the quote, so before you started to say "When quoting member B..." and then have
[/quote]
at the end of the quote again. You type what you want after that. It makes the flow so much easier.

Also, if you want to have "Member B wrote:" you just put
[quote=Member B]
or copy and paste their opening quote code.

Sorry for the double post. I meant to put this one instead of my last rushed answer. You can delete the previous one if it helps. I think this one is a better answer, even though Jestor's was simple to understand.

And, if you could read all my posts, you'd see I get stupid...

Such as:


So, I was talking to Ren, the Magnificent, and he wrote: jestor is a dork


So, offended, jestor wrote: Yea? So is your haircut!



I'm rather serious lately, but, I get silly!

Hahaha... :)

Edit; I'm a bit slow, see above :)

They 'nest' like; here is three levels of nesting;
[quote]A;
[quote]B; inside A[quote]C; inside B, which is inside A[/quote][/quote]
[/quote]

Which would look like;

A;

B; inside A

C; inside B, which is inside A


But the idea is that the new post is not within quote brackets, so a common one is to just have two levels. Anymore then 2 levels gets a bit over the top in regards to the amount of space used... usually 2 levels is enough to make conversation easy to follow.

Which if I got it right, would look like;

Don't forget the "...

You put [Member B] like that, and the "B" won't show...
