so on my tablet I can type in post boxes but I got a new laptop about a week ago and when I pull up this section (the box in which I'm presently typing in) it comes up grey and I'm only able to type in the topic box but not this narrative box.  If I go to my settings all those narative choice boxes are also grey, yet I can send PM's without difficulty, and again, if I'm on my tablet I don't have any difficulties.  Is it a Windows 8 deal?  Is there a way to fix it? I searched tht FAQ page but didn't see anything that matched up.  Any suggestions on how to get rid of the grey?  thanks!

Yup, its a IE10 issue and the fix is posted in the Questions about PBS Forum. I will see if I can find it and post a link.

 

Here is the link to the thread where Len has posted the steps for the temp fix until PBS becomes compatable with IE10. http://www.paperbackswap.com/IE-10-Text-Box-Posting/topic/272989/
