Does html editor selection in My Settings do anything?

HP Recommended

In my settings, checking "use HTML" for default editor doesn't do anything for me.


The rich text editor is OK, until the forum screws up & suddenly deletes my post.

I have back ups (addon in Firefox), but can only copy / paste from it in HTML or plain text.


The forum editor (rich text) won't allow pasting anything in html.

If I paste plain text into the editor, all the paragraph marks, carriage returns, etc., show up in the body.  Requiring a whole lot of deleting.

Thanks for asking.


Some features of the forum are not enabled until you reach a certain level in the forums. We use a scale that mirrors the educational system and when you reach level 6 or "Grad Student", you receive the permission to edit in simple HTML.


You are almost there and once you reach that you'll be able to use that tab.


Thanks for your contributions to our forums.
