When quoting someone else in a response, how do you get it to say, "Popthestack wrote" (and then the quote)?

P.S. Mr. Pop is very wise, but I was just using his name as an example. I really want to quote lots of people, not just him.

There's a button in the top right corner of their post that says "quote." Clicking on that (before you start replying) will open up a reply window with the quote already in it. At least, that's how I do it. I'm sure there are mulitple ways.

To do it manually you can just add ="Name" to the quote tag. So... [ quote="Very Wise Popthestack" ] (without those extra spaces)

as a side note, additional adjectives such as

can be used, but should prob'ly be limited to the cat fights section of the forum.
