OK   **whew ** time to give it another try, for those who can't access the rich text editor. For example, I think Juno users may still be having trouble.

I am typing this message right now with the alternative text editor, which does not give you anywhere near the features of the rich text editor, but provides some basic functions, like emoticons, bold, italics, underline, font face, font size, font color, lists, centered text, hyperlinks, images, and a preview function.

To disable the rich text editor (enabling the "lightweight" editor), go to Board Settings in the Control Panel menu, and then un-check the Use Rich Text Editor option.

This will affect ALL of your editors, including the forums editor, private messages, blog entries, and signature entry.

Let me know if it works for you!

Cheers

Now we cooking!


                                                Hurray!

With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

      Nope!! Oh well.

      When I do an "edit", it continues to show me the HTML code.
      That makes it hard to edit except for just adding to the post like I'm doing now.

        I posted predictions friday night for "all states" when i checked to see if there was any hits yesterday i find that my predictions were only showing in 5 or 6 states. I always go to "view your predictions" after posting them to make sure it's correct and they were all there friday night.  Anyone else have this problem?

          I start on the Home page. Then open additional windows for any threads that catch my eye. So at any given time I might have half a dozen windows open.

          Some will have the Rich Text load, others will not. Right now, for this message, there is no RTE.

          The ad seems to be loading without a problem, everytime. Using ESC hasn't worked. That stops the loading of anything once pressed. Using Refresh will sometimes make it show up. Clicking Go, will sometimes make it show up.

          While already starting this message went and turned off RTE in options. I'll check the effect of that for future threads.

          When the RTE does not load, is it possible to insert a button that can trigger the javascript?

            Forgot to mention...always get an error when RTE does not load.
            Clicking the yellow error symbol in the progress bar shows this:

              That helps.  Let me see if I can track down the missing '}' character.

              Calfdude, you may be having the same problem.  I'll post another message once I find the problem (hopefully I will!)

                  I went to settings and turned off the Rich text editor and it does work.....not like the old one last week which I really liked.

                  I don't understand why it doesn't work. I have IE6, Windows XP, Comcast cable.......doesn't make any sense to me why some people's work and some don't. Mine worked last week.

                      Sandy,

                      I'm not sure either.  I'll keep trying to find out.  Please change back to the rich text editor and let me know once it starts working again.

                        Sandy & truecritic (and whoever else has a problem),

                        Try clearing your browser cache, and try again (using the editor).

                        To clear your browser cache in IE, go to Internet Options in the Tools menu, then click Delete Files.

                          I did that before....didn't work......



                          I think zippy is having a problem also.........and probably many others that just don't speak up or haven't been on over the weekend.

                          Why did you change it?

                          Okay, Todd, I changed back to the rich text editor and it works fine now...thank God......because the other way just plain stunk.

                              Glad it is working for you now.

                              The lightweight editor may "just plain stink" but it's better than nothing for people whose web browsers can't handle the powerful rich text editor.  The lightweight editor is actually pretty good compared to what most web forums use.  But I understand that once you get used to the Lottery Post features, it's hard to do without them.
