    Default Missing Markup Buttons

    Over the last few days I've noticed that none of the markup buttons (Bold, Italic, Quote, Code, Link ...) appear above the text area in the reply area.

    I use the Basic Editor.

    I have also tried the Standard Editor and Enhanced Interface. Both of these include most buttons I'm used to seeing (Bold, Italic, Link, Quote...), but neither has the Code markup button.

    Something appears to have changed.

    Hi,

    Can you tell which browser are you using and test it with other browsers? It should ba a javascript issue for that browser version.
    The editors are changed in the last update. That is true but we can see those buttons (except code. i will check it) inside that rectangle for editing.

    I'm using IE8. I don't have access to other browsers.

    As I mentioned I do see buttons with the Standard Editor and Enhanced Interface (except for the various Code buttons).

    Ok, now i understood your issue.


    There are three editors.


    Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing
    Basic Editor - A simple text box
    Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls


    Then, isnt it normal not to have any buttons with basic editor? It looks like it is the default behavior of basic editor. I suggest you to use one of other two editors.


    Regarding Standard and Enhanced editors, i will keep code button issue in my mind. I dont know whether this is the regular behavior of the editors or not but i guess it is.

    The BasicEditor had (about) 10 buttons before. As I mentioned in the first line of the posting.

    I experimented with the 3 different editors back in May when I first noticed that the "Code" button was missing. See:
    What happened to the "Code tags" button?. Since then I have been using the Basic Editor since it satisfied all my requirements with the basic 10 buttons that I might use to answer a basic question.

    Something changed just over a week ago (I don't remember the exact day).

    The "Code" button is the most important button. I'm not going to spend time reading unformatted code when I attempt to answer questions. This button was available before and should be available again.
