I thought a thread of this kind might help out our new members. If anyone has a question, just ask away.

When you're writing a post, you can make the html tags in it visible by pressing the 'html' button (the rightmost one above the reply box). This is particularly helpful if you want to put a "reply" quote at the start of your post. When you press the "reply" button immediately below a post you want to respond to, the board brings up a box with the post's text in a blockquote (at the bottom of the box). If you bring up the html, you can place your own text after the quote by placing it after the /blockquote instruction.

I sometimes write my posts in Word and then transfer them across. This can result in unwanted formatting effects, so when I do this, I switch to html format and cut out the chaff I don't want.

Switch to HTML Editor and place <blockquote> and </blockquote> either side of the text. Thus:

Switch to HTML mode and place <blockquote> and </blockquote> either side of the text.


For a long time in Visual Mode when you highlighted text to make it a link the link appeared at the top of the page. The board has resumed converting the highlighted text in place.

Yes, I can see it's not there anymore. It appears as if the editor has been redesigned, and as if several buttons have been removed.

Well, can we get it back?

I know how to do that; I miss having a function that did it for you.
