How To: Quote Someone in WordPress Comments

You know how some blog posts spawn comment-conversations that go on forever? Ever needed to quote part of someone else’s comment so that your reply makes sense, and been stuck on how to do it gracefully?

On WordPress blogs, this is quite easy – and it might work on Blogger blogs too. No promises, though.

So, you read this comment on your fave blog:

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been told I’m an idiot, I’d have… ummm… I dunno

… and you can’t help wanting to respond.

Type this into the comments section:

<blockquote>If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been told I’m an idiot, I’d have… ummm… I dunno</blockquote>

… and then type your response.

It should come out looking like this:

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been told I’m an idiot, I’d have… ummm… I dunno

Have another dollar! Idiot.

Don’t that look purty?
