There are two ways:

Use the multi-quote button:


Instructions here: http://www.somersoft.com/forums/faq.php?faq=vb3_reading_posting#faq_vb3_replying

Alternatively, you can do this manually ...

The code to quote someone is:

PHP:
[quote=username]the quote goes here[/quote]

For example:

PHP:
[quote=Minxdamanx]How do you quote from multiple posts on the same response?[/quote]

... you can do this as many times as you want in a reply ... for example:

PHP:
[quote=Minxdamanx]How do you quote from multiple posts on the same response?[/quote]

Here is my response to Minxdamanx

[quote=Sim]There are two ways[/quote]

For example:

PHP:
[url=http://www.google.com.au/]Google[/url]

To make it even easier, there are buttons in the toolbar above the editor window when you are writing a post:

To insert a quote:


To insert a link:


In both cases, just highlight the text you want to use and click on the button, the quotes will be added automatically, and for the link, it will ask you for the URL to the website or web page you want to link to and insert the code automatically around the text you have selected.
