You know when you’re typing on the right hand side of the edit box is how it will format in the final post right.

Just borrowing your thread to make a post to prove I can. Oh, look, there’s a preview box.

okay so now I know that the old system of formatting works using the square brackets and backslash

wow!!! I’m famous.My threads are worth borrowing! Thanks.

But I still miss the old site. :frowning:

You have to highlight the quote,then an option appears to reply to it.

okay, I;m trying this now…Here is a bold face word and here is something in italics. hey–I can see myself on the right!!! it’s magic!!!

So do infrequent posters see the creepy stalkery statements about them? @Ceejaytee, did you see the forum software post that

Borrowing for unrelated testing of edit tracking

Can you do this on the old site?

Oh that’s cool.

  • I like some kinds of pie
