So far I’m not using the forum as much as I might since I struggle with formatting. I don’t remember how to include a quote from a previous post with the poster designation. I think I knew at one time how to indicate code blocks too, but I don’t remember that either. What is the best way to learn this stuff?
How I did this ? Just select what you want to cite, and right click. You’ll be provided a reply ready to post
If you have not started a new post:
Select the text with the mouse, a button with just the word
Quote will appear, then click it and a new post with the quote inserted will be created.
If you have started a new post:
Move the cursor to where you want to insert the quote, then select the text with the mouse, a button with just the word
Quote will appear, then click it and the quote will be inserted.
``` on one line, enter a blank line, then enter
``` on the third line by itself.
Now insert or type the code in place of the blank line.

There is https://try.discourse.org/ where you can play all you need.
You could also use @EricGT and request that I reformat the post.
There is also the
Raw Post button at the bottom of each post that will show you the post as how the user entered it and includes all of the formatting as text.
To use the
Raw Post button, click on then .
