Wow and to think I complained about RT vs Quote RT at some point...
Ello thanks @keithbarrett
How To Reshare / Retweet Content on Ello Ello does not (yet) have a clean method for sharing someone's post. I feel is it always proper to send people to the original post or author somehow. The best you can do right now is to include the specific link to their Ello post in a post of your own so they can go click it. Go to the post you want to reference. The permalink to that post will be the time it was posted. Some times that's underneath the post, sometimes it's above it in the upper right. Right-click and "copy link", or click the link and copy it from the URL box in the top of your browser. Go your where you want to create a new post or comment and create it. Somewhere in your post reference the link. Place within square brackets the text you want to become clickable, then right next to that in parentheses paste the URL you saved. For example: [this is the text to click]<http://ello.co/crypticlink> ... except change the angle brackets to parentheses. Leave the square brackets. You'll end up with something that looks like my signature below.
