Continues to be a problem here.

Many features normally expected are not employed.

Okay, I think I see what you guys are talking about.

The problem occurs when you want to continue writing after you hit preview. The system then won't allow you to move the cursor outside the quote box, right?

Okay, I'm definitely see what you guys are talking about now.

You simply can't get the cursor to appear below the quote box if you hit quote from the OP's post.

You're right. This sucks.

Ok guys, I've discovered something in a way of a quick fix here.

Look at the last box on the bottom right of the function icons on the post a reply screen. That's the "Switch Editor Mode". If you hit that it'll go back to the old system and you can move your cursor where you want to.

It doesn't solve the buggy changes, but you'll be able to do what you need to meantime...

Well, a visit to the main forum for some idea as to what the providers are doing to help, was a lost cause.  No mention of the problem we have with the quote box.  A lot of bitching about the new editor to be sure.  Apparently this was done to enhance mobile connectivity.  There is one thread allowed for discussion and it's up to 16 pages already.  I will have to spend some time trying to get a reply and to see if it's some code modifiable by us that will fix the bugs.  For now, click the "Switch Editor Mode" icon.  Hope for the best.

Just trying this out, looks like it's going to work. Everything else i've replied to has been all *** up this morning. Having to type in the "??" wrote: If this works thanks in advance.

Just tried out the change editor mode a few minute ago on another post.

Seemed to work fine. Got the cursor back which was one of the main things I was lacking, and my automatic spell-check is now enabled. That's great since I can't spell worth chit!  It also underlines where I should use caps, which is helpful. I never actually learned to type. So it's been difficult. But enough about all that.

Have yet to try out the quote functions. That was where the biggest issues occurred.

Thanks Eric for finding this (temporary?) fix.

As our esteemed member Yak has expressed, the prior system worked just fine.


Cheers,

RR

The head admin over at the Forumotion forums has said in the one thread allowed for discussion of this new editor, that going back to the old editor "not an option."  He lists some scripts that need to be removed from code, depending upon which version the individual boards are running.  What I do not understand is why we are having to fix it.  And why a Beta version editor was forced upon us.  Jason will hopefully be back near a computer tomorrow and perhaps he can spot a quick fix.  I suspect it would take me days to figure out what I need to attempt to do, and then I might screw the board up mucking about.  Don't want that.

I talked to Huggie about all of this, it seems PM system is also wonky. Having my own computer issues at the moment, but the dumbed-down version of BoB works okay on my phone. lol

I'm still clicking on the icon to the right of the clipboard (or the nearest one to looking like one), hoping the old format will appear.

No dice.

Maybe yours is in a different place. Depending on your computer and screen layout, that particular icon might be in the third row. Hover your mouse pointer over the icons and a little pop up saying "Switch Editor Mode" should appear when you've found it.
