Hey so looks like we lost a lot of the fun smileys and things...

I'm just wondering what some of the programing is? How do you make text colorful? How about big and small? and bold and italic? It'd be good to know.

::cheers::

All of the options are in the editor that you typed this in. Fonts, the sizes, the "A" offers the color options, etc., etc., etc.

I must be missing something...I don't see an option...All I see are the post icons.

Hrmm...I don't know, I don't think they're showing up on my side of things.

I've got title, message, post icons, submit reply and preview post in this box...then misc. options (show signature, parse links), file attachment, notification and rating in the next box, then the topic review and that's it.

Perhaps one must be a patron to have fancyshmancy editing abilities?

There are lots of other options there too. Explore!
