Can't access any formating options when replying.

When I reply to a thread on my desktop, I am no longer getting any of the formatting options (bold/italic/underline, insert link/picture, etc) that entire block is missing. There is no "Go advanced" option, either.

On my phone I still see all those options.

Is there some setting I need to mess with?

Works for me on a Win 11 notebook and Chrome. If no other suggestions work, be certain your browser is the latest update and clear your browser cache which every great once in a while actually fixes weird issues.

Any help to be had, here? This is what I see when I reply and also clicked on "go advanced".

I see the same thing if I disable javascript, so if you, or some browser plug-in, is doing that, try changing the settings.

Another long shot might be to flush the DNS cache on your computer.

Windows PC?
To Flush the DNS Cache:
  1. 1.At the bottom left corner, type 'cmd' in the Start menu's search bar, and press Enter.
  2. Type 'ipconfig /flushdns' in the Command Prompt, and press Enter.
  3. The user has now flushed the DNS Cache and will receive a message that they have successfully done so.

Kapusta, did that work for you? Alternatively, you can use incognito/private browsing and/or ensure that Full CKEditor is enabled in your Bike Forums user options

No.

What worked was the suggestion in post #14 in this thread:

When replying, I cannot access formatting options

I donít know why that account setting (Full CKEditor) would have been changed, but changing it solved the problem.
