When you use the editor formatting buttons, you're supposed to click the "quote" button *first* -- that inserts the opening BB Code tag; then you put in the edited text you want, then you click the quote button *again* and that inserts the closing tag. The method you describe above puts the opening tag at the *end* of the text you pasted and then the editor automatically inserts the missing closing tag at the end of your post when you click "Submit"

code:

c'mon, oldguy, what's between you and quotes lately? You've been around here long enough to know how to use them properly. If the editor isn't working for you, insert the quote tags manually. [quote]

Yeah, something must be wrong w/ my quoter, it hasn't worked for a couple weeks now.  I paste, highlite, and push the 'quote' button same as always. And all I get is 'quote' at the end of the quote. ???[/quote]



See where the quote tags are??

I avoid the grief by inserting the formatting tags manually.

I'm thinking that if the OP is willing to live in the home now as-is, then the repairs can be done as the money becomes available, and doesn't have to be borrowed; that might make it a viable proposition. "Renting cheaply" is an oxymoron these days. Wink


I rented a studio apartment for $450 a month before I bought my home so that I wasn't wasting to much money on rent. How can you go wrong with a studio, I had my kitchen, my living room and bedroom all in the same room , what could be more convenient. Less to clean.

Right, that's the thought. Still haven't found a way to get the purchase price itself, though. A couple people suggested credit unions might be more flexible with loans using a pre-fix-it-up house as collateral, but none that I approached were willing/able.


Ok, but I was seeing a lot of talk on not having any money to put towards a home with a loan and then to borrow more money on a 203 loan. Sounds like a lot of borrowing. What's your worse case scenario with this plan if it were to go to heck?

Ha!! My first place was an 8 x 40 trailer house I rented for $50 a month (plus all the fuel oil I cared to burn to heat it in a Minnesota winter) ... this was in 1972 ... and I was happy there. Smile
