I noticed when posting today that I can no longer italicize (or "bold" etc) selected text. When did this change, and why?

I had the same problem and asked about it and the answer was that the site is getting some upgrades to the security and anti virus software. This should be ironed out when the upgrade is finished, at least that's what I figure.

I hope it's ironed out soon. The worst part is the inability to insert active hyperlinks.

Not yet on the italics. Except for emoticons, it is plain text.

I notice under Options there is "BBCode is OFF", click on that and it explains how to manually add HTML tags to get italics etc. Not exactly what I had in mind. Not sure where this is going ...

Italics and bold and color are working again
The live links do not - a problem with security, apparently.
Cheers

Greg,

The italics and bold are NOT working in the "Preview" display, nor do they show up in the submitted message.

I applied italics to ""italics" and bold to "bold" in the sentence above, and the tags appear when I edit the post.

So do some of you really find italics and bold etc. are working? (I am using Firefox if that matters.)

Brian

Brian - please note that my post was from June '13, prior to the present site upgrade - must have been an issue with the feature last summer.
Edit - Well, I got the underline to work - I also tried italics and bold, but no go

Well, it appears that the BBCode started working again last night and we have the nifty buttons back.

test italics test bold

Nope, not working.

And I see your italics and bold did not come through.

Wow, Greg. When viewing this web page, italics and bold do not display.

However, they do in the digest e-mail!

Huh?
