I know this sounds really ridiculous but how do I quote another post on CR? I tried pressing the quote button on another person's post and then write my response but every time it ends up just posting what I wrote and not the quote, making my comments really weird. I'm not very computer smart, please help.

After clicking 'Quote Selected' it will lead you to a new page.

Then tada! You can post your response to that.

Hopefully this helps.

The method shown above is particularly good if you're quoting more than one person. However, if you want to quote just one post right away (before reading through the rest of the posts on a page), you should be able to just click the word "Quote" without using the checkbox, and it will allow you to start your new post, quoting them, right away. But is that what you say isn't working for you? That seems odd. Make sure you are actually clicking "Quote" and not "Reply."
