When trying to add a quote I was able to start the quote but couldn't see how to finish it. Is there an instruction somewhere?

Can you be more specific Moydrum? I am sure you're not talking about the " " stuff... You hardly mean putting something in italics?

If it is about referring to a previous comment in a thread you wish to respond to, simply click on the "["quote]" button, top-right in the actual referring post, instead of just the "[post reply]" button top/bottom-left of the page. That will get you the "quotes" I think you are talking about...

Like that you mean?

In the Post a Reply editor, simply click on QUOTE, insert your copied text, and finally click on QUOTE again to finish.
Clicking on the "Quote" button on the thread simply quotes the whole lot rather than just a piece you require.
Hope this helps :!:

When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

A quick way to do this once the text is copied into the reply box, is highlight the text (within the reply box), then press the quote button. This will both open and close the quote similtaneously, the same technique can be used for formating text, indenting a list or entering a URL.
