quote button

Why is it that the last reply on most threads has a “REPLY” button and not a “QUOTE” button? What if you want to quote the last post?

and the edit button apears sometimes only?

You can quote from any post in the thread - click 'post reply' and scroll down the page - all the posts are there in reverse order, so the last post is right there for you. Highlight any text you want and click the 'quote' button for that post

I sincerely hope iantheframer, that your question is academic and that your purpose is not to force your readers to re-read in your post what has just been written by the previous poster.

The edit button is available for a short time after you click 'Submit', then disappears.
