Relatively new to the forum, can't seem to find a way to highlight someone else's post when I want to refer to it in my reply.

I've looked in the FAQs, and down the list of topics, but can't see anything

Can anyone advise?

Here here!!

Example, I didn't need to quote this, If I am really worried about people not knowing what I'm responding too I would write 'WillieKirk'. It's not like Fantalk topics are getting 100 replies a minute and relative posts are disappearing off page at a rate of knots
