how do i select multiple layers?
In photoshop you could hold shift (or ctrl) and click the layers you wanted so you could manipulate them as a group.

I tried googling but got conflicting answers. Some said it's not possible, yet some others said it would be possible in GIMP 2.6 (have 2.6.11), etc so hopefully I can get a straight answer here.

What I'm trying to do is select multiple layers from one image so I can move them into a new image. Thanks.

RE: how do i select multiple layers?
You can link layers, but AFAIK it only means they are transformed together when you use one of the "transform" tools (move, scale, rotate, perspective, etc...) on one of them.

If you want to move several layers from another image, you best option is to use "File/open as layers", which will add the layers in the imported image to the current one.
