    Do you mean doing as I am doing now - replying to a certain post?

    If so, in the post you want to reply to there is a little button saying quote. Press that and it automatically goes into your posting box. Then you can do your typing.

    Not sure if the above paragraph is clear Haha!! Look under this sentence and to the left there is three words. Flag, quote and like. Click on quote.

    If I have barked up the wrong tree with my answer.  I apologise 😁

    You can also remove irrelevant parts of the quote, which is helpful. When people quote huge, entire posts, it takes up half the page -which is really annoying.

    Just highlight and delete the bit that's not needed.  :)

    @Fairygirl I can't do that on my phone, maybe there is a way but I've never been able to quote the one or two lines I want...

    On other forums you can highlight what you want to quote then press "quote", but it doesn't work on here. Instead, you "quote" the whole comment then delete what you dont want, just like any other piece of text ;)

    You can also highlight text, and do a copy and paste, and just add something like 'so and so said ' , but I think the phones aren't as versatile as laptops either.
    Dunno - I don't have one of those all singing, all dancing phones  :D
