View Full Version : Have A Computer Question For Some Kind Soul To Answer
12-10-2006, 11:08 AM
For some reason when I am writing my posts I cannot use any of the tools on the bar above. I get the command that I select in print saying what I just asked for, like this: then that is it. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong. Never had this happen.
I will select a smiley and show you what it does
:) that's it.
Any advise would be wonderful,
Thanks a bunch,
Well, i just figured it out when i posted it the the smiley was there, when i look at my message, i look like I am really having a moment. LOL
I guess it does give the command and then when you submit those things are there. DUH
Please ignore this for I tried to delete the entire thing and it would not let me.

Hi Judy :)
You ight want to try going into your user control panel (the thing that says UserCP near the top left of the page).
Once you are there, click on "Edit Options" on the left hand side.
Once you are in the options, scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see something that says "Message Editor Interface" there is a pull down menu there, and if you choose the one that says "Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing" and then click the "save changes" button at the very bottom.
Once you do that, you should be able to see the actual smile in your text box, instead of seeing the "smile command" with the : and the word smile.
Also, when you use the WYSIWYG option, you can see your text color, see your bold text and everything else (instead of seeing the written commands for these things) right there in the text box as you are typing...
So when you select bold or color or underlining or italics or a larger font or a different font it will show in the text box as soon as you choose it, so you can see exactly what it looks like before you hit the submit post button.
WYSIWYG stands for what you see is what you get
:) hope that helps:)

I'm glad everyone is having fun with the new options in the WYSIWYG editor :)
Between using WYSIWYG and the new smile options, there is a lot of room for fun :)
