Won't be deleted. Who knows your intent, but the meaning is unintelligible. Carry on, no worries!


as a kid that had a rough adolescence, i think you know exactly what i mean....

but thankfully i can talk codecs and links, try and help figure this out. for the admins it might be as easy as see this check box in the settings...

I see them all.

At least all of them since post #66. I didn't go back further to look at any of the previous.

You talkin 'bout me Willis?

I did, though it was way back in post #6.

It is the latest and greatest version of Chrome on a up to date version of win 10.

I haven't noted any issues with the latest version of FireFox on a linux Mint laptop that I sometimes view the forum with. But not specifically looking at the stuff posted here.

I cannot. I'm using the Edge browser in Windows 10 on a year old Intel i5 laptop. When press Post reply and quote it, I see one of those silly [MEDIA] tags.

Just tried it again with the Brave browser and it failed too, but when I clicked the "shields down" button the Amazon ad showed up (it's a pewter beer mug)

Edge, Chrome, and Brave currently use the same open source code base displaying pages. Firefox uses a different code base. Each browser has its own approach towards privacy. For this topic (and when iframe elements are involved), knowing the configuration of privacy settings would be helpful when troubleshooting.

Testing link to Amazon, Chrome, windows 11.
If this was supposed to be a link, then I actually don't see this as a link. Just text.

All the others in the same post to other HomebrewTalk and other places worked as links.

Using Chrome with Win 10.

I haven’t seen this mentioned so maybe it’s just me. On an iPad, running iOS for iPad 15.4.1, and the current version of Safari, the text editor icons in the reply box aren’t highlighted and aren’t accessible, and the Safari text editor icons, which normally appear in a bar above the keyboard aren’t visible at all. Screenshot-

In Chrome the reply box icons function normally and the Safari text editor appears as normal. Screenshot-

It’s only 2 taps to switch browsers so this is a first world problem but it does seem a bit odd.

There should be a pair of closed square brackets that allows toggling between BB and WYSIWYG editing. Where'd they go?

Found them. Tapping the vertical ellipsis on the right brings up the missing icons and highlights the rest. I hadn’t tried that because the ellipsis appeared not to be highlighted. The rest of the grayed-out icons didn’t work; I assumed those wouldn’t, either. If only all first world problems were so easy to solve. :D

"toggling between BB and WYSIWYG editing": it looks like the "Preview" and "BB code" buttons set up a rather obtuse tri-state mode for the editing area. I will suggest making some changes to 1) make the state clearly visible, 2) make the buttons that control the state always visible. Also, there may be a "bug" in the show/hide logic for the "BB code" button at some narrow widths of the editing control. My work-around is make the screen wide enough that the button shows up.
