Hmmmm...how Did This Happen?....

Recommended Posts

Something has happened quite suddenly, and it's quite maddening not knowing how to fix it. I immediately tried hitting the "standard" button, but even this isn't fixing things. When I am composing a reply or a new post, the font is suddenly quite small (probably a "1"). I cannot change the font size....when I try to change to 2, I get the square brackets with "2". The emoticons are written in text, and I cannot underline or italicize anything. I get "i" in square brackets, and "u" in square brackets. I've obviously hit something that's put a new setting in. Anybody know how I did this?

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

Emily,

As you know, you most likely will have to wait for Peter or Tom. :rolleyes: I am of no help, sorry.

Is it possible you somehow got into the "lo-fi version" of the forum?

Hmmmmmm dunno if that'd even explain it.

What's happening certainly seems to suggest "lo-fi". There's a low and high version? Is it a button I could have inadvertently hit? How do I switch it?

....Maybe it's the Chrome in my registration... :rolleyes:<_<

I was going to ask if it started when you "disable" something to fix your other problem. . . ?

Emily! Please don't break the forum!

Emily--

Maybe PM Scott? Coulda been the Chrome thing, too. But you've been ok since you got that figured out, right? :unsure:

I see other sillies scooted over here to weigh in :lol:

OK, I see Patti is posting too (no HubbaHubba, though). . . let's see if we have the same answer . . .

When you are in the posting mode window, at the upper right is a button with two (circular?) arrows on it. It toggles between standard and rich text editors. Try clicking that button.

Aha!!! My money's on Janet's solution.

I don't have that button while using the Sidekick.

Hey!! :o:):)

Janet!!

I thought you were just a Maths Lady...you're also a High-tech Queen! It done worked!! I am certain I hit every button but that one in the far upper-right. So this is rich text, huh? I bow to your expertise, and will remember you now as knowing your way around the virtual world...

Thanks!!

Emily, in the version you saw today, what you were seeing with those square brackets is the raw BBCode format tags. For those who are familiar with BBCode, it is possible to do things in that mode that are difficult or impossible to achevieve in the other mode.

Click here for the Wikipedia article about BBCode.

Even in the "normal" mode you can insert BBCode tags. I do it all the time, but of course you only ever see the results.

When you click on the preview post button, all the valid tags are processed into their effects; if any remain it is because they are mismatched or otherwise invalid.
