First person that uses the marquee or blink tags

Those tags are filtered out by most any server, no worry.

OK, I know NOTHING about HTML or even what a tag is...

Is this something that lets you write a post and then it does all the HTML stuff for you? I am suspecting I'm in over my head already.

That is exactly what it does. Lets you edit posts as if you are in word or whatever that allows formatting. No cut and paste, no hassle. You have to use Firefox as your browser to do it. It does not work with Internet Explorer. WYSIWYG means what you see is what you get. No HTML know how needed. Click bold to make the highlighted stuff bold, underline to underline, and allign center to do that... etc. Also click add link to add links, add pic to add pictures, etc.

WOW......THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the link. There was nother WYSIWYG thing created by a Freeper that very few know about (and I forgot about in fact), but this is REALLY SWEET.

I can now use HTML with ease on my FR posts or anywhere else.

What a rocking extension.

Thanks so much.

Thank you very much, that's very helpful to a computerphobe like me. I use Firefox and will try it out.

You're the best for helping out an inept computeroid.

Did you ever see the interview with Adndreason where he admitted the blink tag was a joke. If he thought anyone would actually use it, he would not have had it included.

VERY.

Wow, never did bold before...

This is a real milestone for me.  I can't figure out file sharing sites, but this is easy.

I always predicted that computers would one day be so easy even I could use them...

 

                                                     ...and I was right!

I have been telling John Rob to put in a WYSIWYG editor for everyone since the beginning of time but he hasnt. Its really just a few lines of code but I respect his opinion.

If it is overused, posts could look terrible. Just because you can make your text pink < h1>, does not mean you should, so I in a way agree with him. On the other hand, Using this when posting new articles rocks because of the ease of reformatting , paragraphing, etc.

Possibly. But I have been to quite a few forums that have them and the novelty wears away. I recommened to John to set it as an option that is off by default which would limit most people who dont see the need for it.

But again, Its Johns decision.

You have to restart the browser first. Then just right click in the posting text box, and it will be there.

It could become a problem if every post looks insanely HTMLicized, to make up a word.

We could start to look like some forums where everybody has to type their posts in different color fonts and 20 point sizes with huges pictures at the bottom of all posts for signatures.
