I have  been having problems on the forums if I submit a reply to someone else's post.  It is putting the post at the top, but my reply is not there.  This just started about a week ago.  Anyone else having this problem? 

Now a stupid question.  When you make a list of books in the forums, and you want to go back and cross out certain books (taken-etc.), how do you cross them out?  I've seen several posts done that way, but I can't figure out how.

I can't answer the first question, but I can answer the second:

When you type your message or edit it, there's a toolbar above the message box with B I U and then abc with a line through it. When you edit your message, just highlight the text and select the abc, just like you would if you wanted to bold, italicize or underline it! :-)

From what I've heard, not all browsers show the toolbar.  On mine there is a little toolbar triangle next to Text to pull it down.

And for the first, have you hit refresh/reload?  Does that do it?

I will try this.  Thanks!

I don't think my browser supports ANY editing of my replies. It sucks.

For people using Google Chrome, for example, the toolbar doesn't show up. But using some basic html will format your text.

  • bold text: <b>...</b>
  • italic text: <i>...</i>
  • underline text: <u>...</u>
  • strike text: <s>...</s>
  • indent text: <pre>...</pre>
  • blockquote: <blockquote>...</blockquote>
  • paragraph: <p>...</p>
  • Note: tags must be properly nested, example:
    OK   <i><b>test</b></i>
    Not OK   <i><b>test</i></b>
