At the bottom left corner of each post, there's a series of buttons. If you click the quote button, it will add all of the necessary info for the 'originally posted by' and the arrow.

There's also a multi-quote button (looks like a piece of paper with a small green circle) and you can click it on all of the posts you'd like to reply to. It will add separate tags and linkbacks for the posts you're quoting (like I did above)

Hope that helps

How do you quote something to make it stay in the bottom of your own posts? I don't get it.

It isn't a quote. It is your "signature". You change this by clicking on 'User CP' which is on the left side of the menu bar. Then click on 'edit signature' under 'Settings & Options'. Just type in whatever you want (within the signature rules).
