I have no acess to formatting options when I post.  The options I use to see like bold, colored font, the eraser for example are all gone.   I am sure it is something that I did in error but do not know how to correct it.  Since I am a hostess for a swap, I need to be able to use the format options. 

Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated.

See if there is a little box over on the upper right of the box where you type your message.  Click on the arrow.

Thanks Mary.  I did that and now the toolbar line is back.  

Just not a techy type of person.

I never noticed that you could hide the tool bar.

And I'm glad to know; my computer wants the toolbar to all be in one line, which means that my text box always get stretched waaaay out off to the right of my screen, so that every time I want to post I have to scroll far over to the right and re-size the window. Having made the toolbar vanish, my text box is now the appropriate size. Thanks very much!

Edited to add: Never mind, it doesn't work - the toolbar vanishes but is back the next time I visit the forum. I can't find a way to hide the toolbar as a default....

hmmm, I always thought I didn't have many options when sending posts either, but today the line of icons is much longer than I've ever seen it so I have new options!
