    Is it possible to quote just part of a post when replying to said post (can it be done from a phone?)

    Two: How does one supply a link to a URL or whatever, with the link being whatever word so chosen (a word that is highlighted), embedded in a script or text (a post)? (can it be done from a phone)?

    Well you should be able edit the text that is pre-filled-in for you when you go to reply to a post, and just take out whatever you don't want to show that is inside the [ quote] tags. You should still be able to use BBCode for URLS, too:

    But I must admit, I don't use the Phandroid App, rather I just use the phone browser.

    Hey. I just quoted only what I wanted too!
    Thanx for all the info. I need to find a place to practice some of the BB Code stuff now.

    I use the phone browser too, but I haven't known how to do the stuff we're talking about from my phone.
