Howdy,
Is thereAny way to add the ability to "copy" or at least "paste" into a post?

There is so MUCH MORE information that could shared if you could just "paste" information into a post instead of having to type EVERYTHING



Thanks

Not sure I understand your issue as I "copy and paste" all the time into posts..

It requires two browser windows being open and all you do is "minimize" the second window.

Obviously this only works for copying data that's already on the internet.

Does this help?

Nope


If I want to "paste" something into my reply post/message back to you, say something about rigs I read on another site, I see no way to do that?

That is "copy" from another site and "paste" into my post/message/reply window to you?

There is no "paste" function that I can see that is available when I want to post a reply

In the Message toolbar section I see Emotionicons, "B", "I" "Attachments" "Strikethrough", "Insert picture, Hyperlink" etc.

but no "Paste" function

The normal Windows "Cut and Paste" functions that you perform with your mouse work in the forums.

When you read something on another webpage, simply left click to highlight the text you wish to copy. Once the text is highlighted, right click the highlighted text, and select copy.

Next go to the new post window, right click, and select paste.


An example is below. I can't remember that anymore, so it's a "cut and paste". Let us know if it works for you.

As Joe said, the standard Windows copy and paste functions work fine. Below is an excerpt from a post on a Dodge/Cummins truck forum that I pasted in using this method:
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">It's almost time to store my slide in camper for the winter. I have 3 options and wish to have comments from the more expeienced members. I live in Wisconsin and winters cab be nasty...

Option 1. Leave outside with polypropelene cover over it or no cover. This is the easiest least expense option.
Option 2. Put in barn with polypropelene cover over it. Not sure it will even fit in barn and there is a mice issue. What do you use to keep mice out of camper? Should I bother with a cover? Do mice just make a nest under cover?
Option 3. Heated storage. It's nice but will cost $45 year per month year round whether I use the space or not. Camper is not readily accessible for use if I would need it.
Your thoughts... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
