    You just have to imbed the itallic code within the quote code...

    I'll see if I can show you:

    {QUOTE}{i}DustinLC{/i}
    I'm cute. Quote me.{/QUOTE}

    Just replace the "{" with "["

    I thought there was a quick way of just copy and paste without having to go through typing out somebody's name and put it in itallic.

    Usually, it's like "original post by xxx " in italic.

    I assume the person didn't have to actually type in those words but just did some copy and paste or hit some button. Could be wrong.

    I always thought they just hard-typed that. I wasn't aware that there was some automatic/programatic way to include their name...

    Dustin, I know exactly what you're talking about and agree that I see it too often for it to be random or done exactly the same way by everyone if its not a short-cut.

    Yet, I don't know how to do it either! [​IMG]
