    Would someone please tell me how to make the bold, underline, etc. work in the editor Sean’s using for these forums? I tried everything I could think of using the buttons in the menu bar at the top of the editor. I couldn’t make it work.

    Rick,

    As an example…

    bold

      underline

    Italics

    Select the text, then click on the appropriate button. The selected text will be surrounded by tags in angle brackets.

    strong and /strong, ul and /ul, em and /em in my examples. It’s hard to type the answer without turning on the tags.

    **The outcome shows after you submit/publish. At least, that’s how it works for me and my browser.

    P.S. And for some reason, underline didn’t work right…

    I didn’t know there was an underline. Oh, I see it: “OL”

    Mark –

    Correct. The underline didn’t work for me either. I thought I’d tried highlighting a word/phrase and then pressing the appropriate button. I’ll attempt it here.

    This statement is bolded. Ok. That’s weird. The only way I could get it to work was by highlighting the statement, pressing the “b-quote” button then pressing the “b” button. Let me try another one.

    This statement is italicized. Nope. Didn’t work.

    This statement is underlined. Didn’t work, either.

    The only function I seem to be able to make work is the bolding and to do that I have to use a weird combination.

    Thanks.

    Just curious…

    Do you get the same results in another browser?

    Rick, I’ll try this and see if it works:

    bold

    italics

    Sean –

    Your example worked. I’ll try it here.

    bold

    italics

      OL

    Seemed to work. Previously, I was writing my word(s), highlighting them, then pressing the button. I just realized I have to first press the appropriate button, write the word(s), then press the button again to get the closing tag.
