Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have got a problem when answering posts. Previously I have been able to highlight parts of a post, and change parts of it to block capitals or italics (for instance) but this facility seems to have disappeared.

    Can anyone help me please with where I am going wrong.

    Ta very much.
  2. I too have had issues recently with the formatting of posts. the HTML shortcut buttons have disappeared, meaning I either have to type the code myself, or compose my post on a different forum (by which, I mean not ARRSE), and cut'n'paste. Additionally, I cannot type a new paragraph, as my return key strokes seem to be ignored by the system (which will be proved if this sentence is a direct follow-on from the last).I am on dii using XP and ie6.

    Brummieboy; go to 'Settings' > 'General Settings' > 'Miscellaneous Options' and click 'Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing'. That'll see you right.

    JP, known issue with DII / IE I think. The COs are aware of it though.

    Try this to see if it helps,​
    Go to Your Settings (top right hand side of page)​

    Then select- General Settings (near the bottom, on left of page)​

    Then scroll down page to - Miscellaneous Options​

    Tick - Enable enhanced interface - full WYSIWYG editing​

    Then scroll down and - Save Changes.​
    Depending on your browser you might have to use the Standard Editor (if the WYSIWGY Editor doesn’t work)​
  5. Thank you Sixty and HHH, it worked a treat.
  6. I answered a Thread 'Take That Jerry...!' #1, with my response, #2:

    OPSEC (in capitals)

    What a wag. A couple of minutes later I thought an addition:


    appropriate and hilarious, and added same (also in capitals).

    Imagine my surprise when, standing back to admire my finished work, I noticed it had somehow metamorphasised into a (lower case):

    opsec ffs

    which doesn't look anywhere near as authoritative as such prose demands, nor adequately convey my comic genius.

    I went through the whole procedure again just to check that the phenomenon remained, and that it was not a case of Mrs Carrot slipping me the Mushroom/Viagra/Roofie cocktail as on prior occasions when the keyboard seemed bust, and lo, there it was again.

    I have tried it again just now and yup, there it goes... OPSEC FFS to opsec ffs

    FFS. Or should this happen anyway?
