My RETURN key don't work :o( Why no paragraphs?
Posted by jag.crusher on Friday, April 2, 2010 12:59 PM
Hi, Just wondering if there is any particular reason why my posts are just a long string of words?... I can use the Return key when composing to form paragraphs but these are lost once posted. Thanks, Steve.

Your return key works, its that the Forum software SA is running has an old version of a Javascript WYSIWYG editor (possibly FCKeditor) which does not support browsers like Safari..

To fix the problem, you need to type in HTML or try Firefox.

I have this problem as well because I have a Mac and use Safari. So right now I am trying google chrome. Will see if this works. By the way, How do you type in html? I looked at my profile and did not see a way to change it so I am sort of lost. Thanks for the tip, Stewart

Obviously that did not work.  However, I just downloaded firefox and it solved the problem.  Also, with safari, the toolbar at the top of the posting window never showed up.  With firefox it did.  thanks so much for the tip.

The toolbar is part of the Javascript that does the HTML for posting... its just out of date and does not support Safari... may also have issues with other browsers.
