    Making font "bold, colored" ect...

    Other forums i am a member of allow you to just highlight some words then select options to make those words bold, underlined, colored ect...

    I know there are ways to do that by typing out things like "", but is there a way to accomplish that without typing the commands out manually? Seems like there should be a way to highlight then select the changes you want.

    thanks for any help

    Yes - you highlight the text you want to change, then click the B, I, or U button above the editor box. Or you click the arrows in the font, size, or font color boxes & find what you want to change it to.
    Do the buttons not show up for you??

    To type the commands manually, put the appropriate words or numbers in [command] [/command].

    No, the buttons do not show up for me. I don't see any editor box? I have no idea why. At the bottom of my page it says-

    BB code is On
    Smilies are On
    [IMG] code is On
    [VIDEO] code is On
    HTML code is Off

    Does that mean anything?

    At the very top right of any page, find "Settings" > click

    Then scroll down to "My Settings" in far left column. Continue to "My Account">> "General Settings" > click

    Now scroll down to "Miscellaneous Options" and choose

    • Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing


    That should enable all functions.

    Then where have you typed your 1000+ posts??
    Hopefully Grapeshot cleared up the problem for you. I can't imagine going that long typing the various formatting commands in by hand every time.
