This is one of the more informative threads to be started on this forum in quite some time.

Actually, he was testing to see if it really would be ignored. 

Guess not.

I don't see no stinkin' WYSIWYG toolbar. (post #189196, reply #7 of 22)

As long as we're testing, I just tried enabling javascript to see if that affects my ability to insert a blank line between paragraphs in my post. I notice that FHB says they added a WYSIWYG toolbar for posting, but I do'nt see it. So, here goes. Legible, or all squished together? Rebeccah

And, squished together it is. (post #189196, reply #8 of 22)

Javascript or no, I no longer seem to be able to post a legible message. I don't see where to enable HTML posts, or WYSIWYG toobar, or anything else that might make a difference. Anyone know the secret? Lots of other people don't seem to be having any problem with this. Thanks, Rebeccah

I get the toolbar that lets (post #189196, reply #9 of 22)

I get the toolbar that lets me do bold, italic, etc, but it doesn't seem to allow embedded HTML, based on earlier tests.

(I'm using Firefox with the more or less standard settings.)

Rebeccah, Source button upper left in the reply box, might be something to try clicking on which changes from html to the what you see thing.

Yeah, enter some stuff with the formating controls and then click the "Source" button -- you'll see the HTML.

Unfortunately, you apparently can't edit an <img> statement, eg, into the HTML.

Very well could be so.

I'm a more visual guy,

hence-what I see is hopefully what I get.

It appears so.

So, if I want to post anything that is not squished together, I have to code it in HTML.

What am I missing here? How come other people see toolbars and source buttons and so forth to help them out, and I do not?

No, there is not. I have no idea why. I'm at home now (was at work before), IE 6, javascript enabled. Rebeccah

Yeah, as Calving says, right below the "Comment: *" is a little box with "Source" next to it.

This is on Mozilla FIrefox.  But I see the same on Windoze Exploder and Opera.

I'm guessing you must have JavaScript enabled to see this.

Now, trying from Firefox, I have the WYSIWYG toolbar (when I enable javascript).

So, it seems it's broken in IE 6, but works in Firefox.
 I don't have Firefox at work.

Hmm.  If I add forums.finehomebuilding.com to the trusted zone in IE, it works, too, even if I disable javascript in the trusted zone. 

 

I really don't like putting sites in the trusted zone in IE, but there's an awful lot of s**t that doesn't work if you don't.  Guess I should have figured that was the culprit.  The usual symptom is a page that simply fails to load.
