    1.) How to answer multiple posts

    It's pretty simple-the forum software has the facility.

    Simply select the posts to answer, using the icon at the extreme lower right of each post, as in the example below (see the little checkmark?):


    Then use your "reply" button.

    I get it, Mod. You'd think I'd know how to do this by now, but not so. I've always just copy and pasted and then used the quote facility from the tool bar.

    LOL....I used to do that, and I'd have three or four windows open, furiously copying and pasting my no-doubt immortal thoughts...
    Now if someone can figure out how to delete part of an attachment...that'd be a worthwhile addition to the thread.

    It occurred to me that others may have the same issue. But you're welcome nonetheless.

    Oh yes thanks. I have been hoping for a thread like this.

    What I'm looking at is how you've got options like Close this thread and Publish to facebook. That's probably 'cos you've got super-powers. Just clarifying, us members might get confused.
