I have IE but it doesn't work with it.
Agent Scully Back · 18 years ago

Hmmm...first time I ever saw this! :o

I think he said it works with IE6.0

Josh Woodward Back · 18 years ago
yeah, i originally thought it would work with IE 5, but it turns out that IE 6 is the limit.
Talcott Back · 18 years ago
How was it not working with IE5? It worked fine for me monday night.
Josh Woodward Back · 18 years ago
oh really? was it IE 5.5+ by chance?

UPDATE: it probably was. IE5.5 seems to be the cutoff.
Talcott Back · 18 years ago

Yeah, it was 5.5, but I'm almost sure that I remembered it working on my 5.0 at home. I might be wrong though.

I wonder if there is anything that tells which Mac versions are equivilant to Windows versions. I'm running a mac and I get the editor in forums and I'm on version 5.1 (I think that's actually the latest for mac) Sarah

I like it when Josh says "spiffy"!

Life is complicated enough.  I don't need coloured text and junk.  I'm QUITE happy emphasizing with caps and whatnot.

(hey, what does this button do?)

pretty darn spiffy, actually.

the hard returns confounded me so.

i turned it off.
sheryls Back · 18 years ago

just hold down shift and hit return, that'll make it go just one line down.
like this.

see? :)

@whee! :D

A girl named Becca Back · 18 years ago
Ooh!  Awesome!
Thanks!  :)
Josh Woodward Back · 18 years ago
would you all like it better if return gave a single line? i think i would..
sheryls Back · 18 years ago
i personally dont care, as i generally put 2 lines between things anyway. it doesnt bother me either way :)
beth-pseudocanuck! Back · 18 years ago
the shift+enter is unnatural to me...
nate... Back · 18 years ago
I KNOW I would.....
Andrea Krause · 18 years ago
I was forced to pick no, but I think it WOULD be spiffy if it actually worked on my machines. :) (actually I haven't tried it on THIS machine which has 6, but it would be a pain to keep turning it off and on. :) )

Or...would that not be an issue now that you upped it? Would it just not show up on my machines that didn't handle it before?
A girl named Becca · 18 years ago

I can't set the font before I start typing in frums...well, I can, but it doesn't do anything.  It uses whatever the default is, and then I have to highlight the text after I type it in order to change it.  Colors work fine, though, and it doesn't seem to be an issue here....just with frums, I guess.  Any hypotheses?  Anyone else getting the same thing?

nate... · 18 years ago
I voted for it being spiffy... but... I disabled it last night, and there's no way to re-enable it. :-/
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years ago
Yes there is...follow the same link from the main page news item and it now asks if you want to enable them instead of disable.
A girl named Becca Back · 18 years ago

For those who don't have the "Site News" block on their mainpage, here's the link:

nate... Back · 18 years ago
did that. They were showing as "enabled" still.. so I disabled and reenabled... still gone.

That's not how I had disabled them, though, I disabled them with the button on the HTML editor itself.
Josh Woodward Back · 18 years ago
> I disabled them with the button on the HTML editor itself.

what button? *grins*
nate... Back · 18 years ago
Heh.. the little one in the bottom right (as I recall)... for becca, that just causes it to go to a little gray bar.. but.. that's what I clicked last night, and now it's gone completely.
nate... Back · 18 years ago
Hrm... unless that happened to be, by chance, at the same time you said it wouldn't work with IE 5...... and I'm on 5.5 right now.... Would that do it? do you have it so that it doesn't even show up for people using IE 5.5?
A girl named Becca Back · 18 years ago

The "toggle mode" know, the one that doesn't go away when you click it and changes everything back if you click it again?  ;P

Josh Woodward Back · 18 years ago
oh gotcha. unfortunately, it still uses the advanced DHTML features in "simple" mode as well, so the IE 5.0 and below folks still can't use that.
meh · 18 years ago

I answered "no," for a variety of quirky little reasons that are probably just me being weird, but it occured to me that when I remember to use the little on/off toggle while I'm creating my message, I can end-run around pretty much everything that annoys me by playing with the html.
This even works on the two-line return, thing.  You've just got to toy with the tags a little.

So, uhm... consider one "no" answer to be "no-but-sorta-in-the-long-run."?

Josh Woodward Back · 18 years ago
Like someone said above, the current way around the two-line return is to hit Shift-Return. I plan to put a hack in place to make it do that from the start, though.
