Partial quotes: To the right of a post title is a “Quote Entire Post (or highlight some text for a PARTIAL quote)” link. You can use this to make just make a partial quote from a post by highlighting the text you want to use and then click the “Quote” link. It will pull together the author’s name, a link to the original post and the date it was posted and put the selected text in a quote box. You can do this for as many partial quotes as you want. It’s helpful when you’re quoting something from an older post or across boards or topics, as it will allow others to click on the quote to go to the original post.

Important: The quoted text will be put into the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the page and you will not have access to the Save a Draft button yet. Once you click Preview, your post will be moved up to the standard message box, with the Save as Draft button below it.

To quote an entire post (not advisable unless it's fairly short), don't highlight any text, just click the "Quote" link.

This is what a linked quote looks like:
