Issue with Forum post editor

Hello The WYSIWYG interface/toolbar is only present once in a while, as if I'm keying in a notepad.txt file. Much of the time double line space is filtered out on save or preview. I'm usually stuck in the DREADED SoUrCe MoDe. Some things created in WYSIWYG have been copied after switching to SOURCE so the tags are revealed, then pasted into a notepad.txt file so I can figure them out and use the subset of tags that this forum allows, invalid one are just more text and characters inserted, revealed in the post. An image of a source display of an "image insertion" would be a great boon. Either posted here or sent as a private message. Thanks folks

If you are using IE then set Compatibility mode under Tools to ON

Double Posted for comparison.

I'm using the tags from a notepad file copied from a display of a comment that the WYSIWYG software showed by clicking the "Source" button in the Forum Post Toolbar, in a comment of mine in another Topic/Thread.

This feels like I'm back in Kansas in B&W (reverse Black on Amber Screen) using CPM, Perfect Writer, and Fancy Font for the 9-pin Epson MX-80 dot matrix, graphic mode printer.

Ah, the old days where a WHOLE page of keying stored in a 2k file with unused space after EOF byte for Secret-Authentication-Hall-Marking bytes for original final file on original final 5 1/4 inch disk DsDd 348Kb

and a couple sectors left after that.

Re: Issue with Forum post editor

Posting an image is a two step process.

Loading an image requires the the button on the tool-bar.

It's absent now.

Once loaded to the Image posting window list from a saved snip file or screen shot or elsewhere image, it's selected from that posting window for insertion in comment/reply. Then the image will show in this window, and the PREVIEW,

Selecting the "Source" button reveals the TAGGING to insert the image from the Forum Server Folder created for the Member/User 's uploaded images.

I conclude that each of Member/User is allocated ONE unique folder for Uploading-to or Deleting-from, when that feature is activated. Adding files to THAT folder is for that member only, as is Deleting.

It might be possible Deleting followed by Replacing a file with one named the same but different data would Delete or Change that image in any Reply/Comment it was inserted into.

The uploading to that folder from USING the REPLY/COMMENT window in ANY Topic/Thread that has the TOOL-BAR:

which reveals the TAGGING when the

"Source" button switches this display from WYSIWYG to Instructions

is COPY-ABLE. The preview button is part of the process also.

Copy and Paste the "code" INSTRUCTIONS to a local file on the client system. That is what to paste into the Comment/Reply window of an open Topic/Thread that LACKS the TOOL-BAR.

Use the "PREVIEW" button in the

"Stand-in" TOOL-BAR functioning WYSIWYG Reply/Comment feature.

THAT Preview reveals the

CANCEL button.

to clean up after yourself.

This is a dot png file that I saved to my client and then added to my folder on the server:

This is a dot JPG file from a SNIP I made and saved and added to my folder on the server:

It's a work-around. It doesn't resolve the issue of this Thread.

You, kind reader, have figured out that an entire comment could be composed, indented, Italicized, made Bold, Underlined, struck through and BULLET-ed and Heading-ed in a surrogate, followed by the rest of the steps, BUT that is only formatting codes that only take fingers keying them, mice nibbling them from a file and click-pasting here and there.

Accessing that folder on the server for putting files in MUST have the button and its activated display of the contents of the folder on the server.

Re: Issue with Forum post editor

Just an FYI

The GURU mediation mentioned in your images has nothing to do with the forum GURUs. We occasionally have seen the same messages. They usually clear up on their own after refreshing the page or trying again a little later.

You might see the not authorized  message if the post has been removed for whatever reason.
