Can't get BBCode to work in my last few posts
« on: November 25, 2015, 02:47:46 PM »
Howdy,

For one reason or another I have lost the ability to utilize the BBCode icons while posting on this forum.

Any ideas?

Thanks and regards,

On Windows 10 with IE11:  Windows 10, IE11.

Got it!  It isn't you.  It is Microsoft Edge. 

Using the BBCode manually as shown in the code box below works:  Windows 10, Microsoft Edge but clicking the B/I/U etc. buttons doesn't do anything.

Code: [Select]
[b]Windows 10[/b], [I]Microsoft Edge[/I]

Personally, I'm not fond of Microsoft Edge.  Then again, I'm not fond of IE either since I have come to depend on certain add-ons that I use with the Pale Moon browser.

Are you using any browser add-ons, or other security software, or have any settings, that would limit scripting?

I can't duplicate your symptoms, but with the "noscript" add-on for Firefox, I lose some of the functions of the forum, unless I specifically "Allow landzdown.com".... then everything works  :)

EDIT
Corrine's right, the buttons don't work if I use "Edge".

Hi Corrine and Pete,

@Corrine:  I just finished doing a response to you using some of the bbcode manually and being 73 years old caught up to me.  I accidently deleted my response but I did as you said and it worked for me but as you can see it must have taken me forever ...lol

Edge isn't what I would call a favorite of mine either because I have used IE since I ventured into cyber space eons ago with Win 95.  But I will keep plugging away.

My wife uses Firefox to play her games and all I know about that is basically keeping it secure and updated.

I have never heard of 'Pale Moon' (using bbcode manually) so I am going to check that out.

@Pete:  I don't think I have any other Security programs that limit scripting.  When I post at other forums (i.e., Windows 10 Forum) I can utilize their bbcode successfully.

I appreciate both of your responses.

Thanks and regards,
2harts4ever
