I hope that those of you who aren't used to this type of forum software get used to using the controls, especially the quote function. As I read through the older threads, not using that function makes things very hard to read as the old '>' used by many didn't translate here very well. All you need to do is [*quote]put copied text here[*/quote] (omitting the '*', I had to use that to make the quote controls show) instead of using the old brackets if you're entering your quote manually.
If you go into your User CP and select Edit Options, you can get the WYSIWYG editor, which will give you all the formatting controls for text size, color, links, images (not functional yet, per Barry). New start to a great forum, Barry, thank you muchly for the change!
