Issues with Formatting Text & Adding Links
Sep. 28, 2007 4:12 PM
Hi All!

I hope everyone is enjoying our new interactive members directory.? I've really enjoyed the messages I've received over the last two weeks and especially appreciate the compliments.

Some of you have discovered an issue with the text editor / text formatting tool that pops up above the entry field for comments, blog posts and the like.? Unfortunately, the Safari browser (currently my browser of choice) doesn't see the editing tools and I imagine older browsers are equally blind to its convenience.

Mac Users: I would recommend installing the Camino browser on your system.? I use that as my back-up browser. Its Mozilla-based (same as Firefox) but is a much smaller installation and its interface relies on the basic Mac-style.? Camino will let you use the text editor which will allow you to format your posts and add links.? We're hoping that the final version of Safari 3 (released with the new Mac OS 10.5) will solve this problem as well.

PC Users: I would suggest using Firefox instead of an older version of Internet Explorer or Opera.

As always, if you have any questions, just drop me a line!

Andy, thanks for the tip on Camino. I am a Mac user. I posted my first blog entry here without ever seeing a toolbar - then I saw your message, so I was able to download Camino and rewrite my post complete with links.

Thanks for putting together this cool space for us.
