Unable to use Fonts and other Feature in Blogs Content Box

Posted by TNTOS on Nov 30 2012 - 10:24 AM

When I tried posting in my blog today, I noticed that I have no access to any of the different colored fonts in the content box. Nor can I make links or use the "copy and past from Word" button or use any of the other features and buttons that are normally above the content box that I type in. It's all completely gone and it worries me greatly.

The content box is now just a plain old content box with no special features whatsoever. I have no idea how I am supposed to use different fonts, links, or any of the other things I normally use when posting. I can't even use basic things like italics or bold anymore.

As a side note, I have noticed that the forums and Tracker also suffer from this complete lack of content box features, which again worries me.

I don't know if anyone else has ran into this problem, but it's annoying and I hope it's resolved soon.

Have you tried clicking on the light switch icon in the top left corner of the editor? That toggles between the Rich-Text Editor and the BBCode Editor.

I don't see this light switch icon you're talking about, so no, I haven't tried it. So I still can't change my font or do anything else.

Can you get a screenshot of what you see?

Oh, I've had this problem a long time ago, I think (at least, it sounds like the same problem). Is it only with your content blocks, though? When I had the problem, it was for normal posts, too. But anyway, IIRC, it was an issue with my browser for some reason. Switching browsers would fix it, as well as clearing the cache/history. Does that help at all? This sounds semi-similar to what I've had happen to me before, so yeah. That might work.

No, I can't. It basically just looks like the normal content box you type in when you're posting, but it lacks the special features and buttons at the top (such as the link button, for instance). I can only type in plain text as a result.

I haven't tried changing browsers, although I'm not sure how I'd do that as I only have one type of Internet browser. Maybe I need to download another one.

Also, another related error I have noticed is that I can't use italics even when I copy and paste something that is written in italics. No idea what the problem is there.

Hmm, I think I've run into that problem before; it sounds almost like the editor isn't fully loading, and is just giving you the text box, like on quick reply before you click into it. Especially when you say there aren't any buttons at all... If they were greyed out, I'd say it was the light switcch problem, but this sounds like the editor just isn't working.

That said, you could theoretically just type in the BBC tags, since quotes work for you, along with quoted colour text. But to those who haven't memorized BBC, that could just be a frustrating alternative...

Does the box look like this?

@fishers: Yes, that's exactly what it looks like.

-TNTOS-

Okay fishers, how did you get that to happen now?

Hmm, then the editor isn't loading after all. Nothing else happens when you click in the text box, right? And it's not a Javascript problem, correct? Reloading(By clicking the reload button) while you hold Shift may work too, though I'm not sure.

As far as I know that happens when you have the editor open (as in, actually having clicked the textboxt of the editor) in several tabs of the same browser, or at least that's how I got it in the past.

That's not how it works for me. I only have BZP open in one tab on one browser and the editor still doesn't work.

Okay fishers, how did you get that to happen now?

That's what happens whenever I use my iPad on the full version of the forums. I was confused as to whether or not he was seeing the blue bar that would indicate that the editor was active, just in the wrong mode.

I don't know why the editor doesn't work on my iPad; that's not relevant here, unless TNTOS is using a Mac or something.

I'm not using a Mac. I'm using an Acer laptop.

Do you have Java script turned on? You're using Internet Explorer, right? 
 
The reason I ask is because my iPad can't run scripts...I think...

All verisons of the iPad should be able to run JavaScript. Sometimes it might be incompatible, as they center on toch events instead of mouse events for interactivity.
 
Exactly what browsers are you guys using?

On my iPad, I'm using Chrome, although that doesn't matter, because it doesn't work in Safari either.

I'm using Internet Explorer, although I'm not sure if Java script is on or not.

According to the website, Java script is active on my browser. So that's not the problem, it seems.
