Below the compose box, click on "Attachments and other options" to expand the attachments and options section.  From there you can browse for the file you wish to attach, then select from the dropdown how you wish it to appear in the post: full size inline, expandable thumbnail, etc.

Nothing will happen ... but when you get to the last post you want to quote, click "quote" ... and lo and behold, they will all be there.  Alternatively just keep hitting "add multiquote" until you're done and then press the "Reply" button as normal.

There certainly is and it's very easy!  If you make an error whilst typing, simply use Ctrl+Z on your keyboard to undo your last typing (or deleting).  To redo, use Ctrl+Y.
Who needs a special button!  :D

If you have a low post count then your links are obscured as an anti-spam measure. Don't worry, just keep contributing to the threads and your links will all automatically show correctly once you have reached the minimum number of posts  :tiphat:
