@Digerati:  Thanks for your opinion on me using the default Windows Firewall settings.
You are welcome. The defaults work. And if something works, don't try to fix it!

Hi Digerati,

You said:  You are welcome. The defaults work. And if something works, don't try to fix it! (For your information I tried using the BBC items, ie., B, I, U, Insert Quote, etc., in my response to you but I don't seem to be able to get them to work on this forum)

In response to your quote: .... Amen to that ...lol

Thanks and regards,
2harts4ever

PS:  And ... thanks for your service from a USMC retired.

Not sure why your bbcode would not work. Generally you can highlight the text then click the formatting button.

Thanks for recognizing my service, and thank you for yours.

Hi winchester73,

This is a test of the BBCode: ---   Blue is Bold ---.  I tried to make 'Blue' the color blue and the word 'Bold' in a Bold format.

I went to a few other forums and I could get them all to work when using BBCode.  For one reason or the other I am not being allowed to do it on this one.

Thanks and regards,
2harts4ever

Bold  color  size
All in IE 11 on Win 7. The previous was Comic Sans font.

Have you tried putting tags around the items instead of using the buttons?

bold [ b] and [ /b] without spaces

Hi plodr,

I'll give it a try right now:    Bold is blue

That worked but it would take me forever to do it if I had a long post ...lol

Thanks and regards,

Sorry, I was playing around, meant to test it with other boxes and configurations and got sidetracked ...

You're right ... too much work if you had a long post.  Let's see if we can figure out what is going pear shaped here ...

I guess I am not seeing the problem issue. Color seems just as easy (or hard - depending on viewpoint) as any of the other options.

    Now what I would like to see is an indent option added. To make an indent now, you have to make a list, then remove the bullets.

Remove the spaces between [ and the next item.
[ color=red] insert the text you want[ /color]
choices after color are red, yellow, pink, green, orange, purple, blue, beige, brown, teal, navy maroon, lime green and of course black and white.
Not sure how often white would be used here.

[ size=36pt]insert text here[ /size]
choices are 8pt, 10pt, 12pt, 14pt, 18pt, 24pt and 36pt

I use brackets oftener than I use bbcode.
