Hi ~ I've had these problems for quite some time n' it's high time to find out if they can be fixed. One is that instead of paragraphs in a post...everything runs together. as in the "One" should be a new paragraph. Second, even though I've checked the box 'Enable emoticons' under Post Options (viewable when typing a Reply of posting a new topic...there is nothing to click on to 'enable emoticons'. btw, this should have been the third paragraph starting with "Second" Third, I'm not able to "enable signature" either. This being fourth paragraph. also, the 'quote or double quote options don't work... 5th paragraph - - thank you in advance. 6th para Fire :-)

We will need just a little more information.

What web browser are you using?  Does this happen in more than one browser?

 

Thank you for your assistance.

oh man, just after clicking 'post', I slapped my hand on my forehead as in DUH when I realized I needed to include more info. n' I should have known better. anywho, my browser is IE n' my os is 7Pro. yes, things used to work with this set-up but haven't for quite some time. a search of my posts might indicate when but that would be time-consuming. tho if you think it would help, i'll be happy to do it. also, I'd be happy to find out if things worked in a different browser of your choice...or perhaps Avant? it's your call....Fire

On the far top right, there is a little arrow pointing to the left,

Click it and your options bars should reveal.

Do you see the far right edge of the reply box?

 

Maybe try F11 to go full screen will help.

The only way that I was able to push the right side off the screen was with a very low resolution.

But even with that, there is a scroll bar at the bottom that allowed me to scroll over and reveal the little arrow at the top.

 

Can you post a screen shot of what you are encountering?

There's been an update to the INvision boards recently. firecracker - scroll all the way down to the bottom of your page. If there is a blue button that says "Full Version", click it. You may be stuck in IP.Board Mobile Theme. 

I checked on that option and I think the problem she is having comes from that. Dave, I'd post a screenshot of what the board looks like in IP.Mobile theme, but I forget where to upload them to. Imageshack? Instagram? Hell if I recall.

You may have cracked the case, Kurt. :clap:

Fire, scroll down to the bottom of your screen and look for the shaded words: "Full Version"
They should be just below the Post button.

Click that and the default skin will be activated.

Why is that strange?  It's not as often as you used to, but I wouldn't call it strange.

no, problems still exist....snafu would be the word. no emoticons, no paragraphs, no nuttin' n' it didn't post 'twice' - must've been my evil twin :-) < if that shows as smilie, I did it using 'colon-dash-end parens. EXCEPT when I posted in user2user, I did have the option to browse for an attachment but I don't have that option, or any others, here. my post "well, this is most strange. I just replied to a thread in User 2 User" in this thread was incomplete. here's the full post....if it works: well, this is most strange. I just replied to a thread in User 2 User

nope, complete post doesn't 'want' to post. I sent Y a pm with full post n' will send you the same pm. maybe that will help clarify the situation? I'm getting close to the 'gggrrrrr' stage in my feeble brain. Fire :-)

ok, so my attempt to send Y the full "post" failed BUT I might have figured out why. here's another shot at attempting to post the full 'post', minus an errant '<'.... "well, this is most strange. I just replied to a thread in User 2 User http://forums.pcpits...guage-download/ n' had the option adding an attachment - browsing my computer. which worked b/c my smilie shows but so does part of the link. I'd hit key to start a new paragraph but it won't matter...everything still runs together. anywhoo, does this additional info spark any ideas? this "reply" box does not give me any options. O, I wanted to edit my post in User2User but wouldn't allow me. thanx mucho...Fire" if it works, I've fallen off my chair....thud
