Tried to do an edit this AM --- on this thread... http://www.ivillage.com/forums/home-garden/hobbies-crafts/stitchers-niche/sewing/thrifty-thursdays-sewing and on this one http://www.ivillage.com/forums/home-garden/hobbies-crafts/stitchers-niche/sewing/sewing-tutorials-week and the composition box came up showing ti was WYSIWYG but it was all in code and there was no tool bar. (See screen grab attached --- once I get the dratted thing formatted to satisfy your attachemnt widget). Sorry --- how am I supposed to work with this? So I started a new post to the OP, which worked fine, and so did edit (had a tool bar) for the new post I added to each. AND it worked in this thread, as well: http://www.ivillage.com/forums/home-garden/hobbies-crafts/stitchers-niche/yarn-works/thrifty-thursdays-yarn on a thread which is NOT the OP but a post in reply to it. (see the last post in the string)

Now this is really confusing... Is it something about OPs now that isn't working but posts to the OP can be edited?

OK< it seems to have corrected itself on Stitcher's Niche, but on Decorating & Home Improvement, now I can't get a toolbar for OPs! I want to post an html source and there's no way I can do that when WYSIWYG isn't working... or is there?

Hi Carol -

When the site is having performance issues, the boards load slower and sometimes the WYSIWYG doesn't load. The screen shot you showed is in HTML, so you're able to post as you wish.

Thanks,

Actually, that screen shot showed how the WYSIWYG for an EXISTING post appeared... I was going to add to it but I couldn't read where to put things. I'm not proficient in html and when WYSIWYG doesn't load the tool bar and shows everything in disabled rich text no matter WHAT text format one shows, *I* can't post...

The thing is. performance issues... all weekend. Different boards, different issues. DIfferent threads, different issues. Different posts iwthin a thread, different issues. One never knows what one is going to encounter and the solutions are NOT obvious... Is it any wonder no one is poting any more?
