Have you ever felt the need to quote someone on Discord but you’re not sure how to go about it? You’re not alone, and luckily, this is an easy task to accomplish. Now, many users like the quoting feature because it allows them to easily reply to certain messages in the chat.
How to quote something or someone on Discord
When it comes down to quoting persons on Discord, there are multiple ways to get the job done. Also, the steps to quote other users in a chat are the same across desktop and mobile versions of Discord.
How to use the Single-line Quoting feature in Discord
If you only want to quote text that takes up a single line, then it makes sense to use the single-line quoting method.
- Open the Discord app on your device of choice.
- Navigate to the conversation where you want to quote a message.
- From within the text box, type the > symbol.
- Hit the Space key once.
- Finally, add the text you want to quote.
How to use Multi-line quote in Discord
Folks who want to quote more than just a single line of text must use the multi-line quote method.
- Again, fire up the Discord app.
- Go to the relevant conversation.
- To quote several lines, type >>>.
- Hit the spacebar key.
- Add the text you want to quote.
- Finally, select the Enter key to complete the task.
Take advantage of Discord Code Blocks
Back in 2021, Discord released a new update that introduced Code Blocks to the feature set. By using the Code Blocks, users can easily highlight messages with ease, so let us look at how to do this.
If you want to create a single-line of Code Block, type (`). As in, only the backtick inside of the brackets. So, the message should look a little like the following:
`The Windows Club is the best there is. `
For those who want to add multiple lines of text, we suggest typing (‘’’), which is all three backticks in the bracket. It should look like the following when you’re done:
‘’’The Windows Club is the best website for news and reviews.‘’’
That should be enough for quoting text in single and multiple paragraphs. As you can see, the tasks are simple and do not take a lot of time complete.
How to use the Discord quote bots
There is also the option to use a Discord quote bot on your preferred device. There were quite a few such bots on GitHub, but these days they are pretty hard to find. Luckily, Quote from Deivedux is still available, though no longer on Discord.
Deivedux/ Quote: As for this one, then, well, it brings to the table several features that we find very pleasing. For example, message link & ID quoting, deleted/edited message snipping, message cloning, personal quoting, server quoting, server-based language responses, and more.
Why aren’t quotation marks working on Discord?
If you are confusing the backtick symbol with the quotation symbol, then things will not turn out as intended. It’s up to you to make sure the right symbol is in use before hitting the Enter key.
What does Quoting do on Discord?
OK, so whenever a message or text is quoted in Discord, you are either replying to a user or highlighting important pieces of text. This is super important if you’re in a chat with hundreds of users who are communicating at the same time.
How do you reply to a message on Discord?
All you have to do here is to right-click on the message you want to respond to, then select Reply from the Context menu, and that’s it.
