Default Need Help With Message Editor Interface

I quoted a post and was trying to CAPITALIZE some letters and change their size in my reply, but when I clicked "preview post" it showed all lower case letters. I tried not changing size, changing size again, changing fonts, tried bold, italic, underline, and anything else I could think of. Nothing worked so I went to my User CP, and I think it was under Settings and Options, Edit Options, Miscellaneous Options, that I found Message Editor Interface. I clicked on WYSIWYG but wasn't sure what to do with it besides using BB Code. I tried posting the same thing and it still turned the capital letters into lower case. When I went back to the control panel I didn't see anywhere to turn the basic or standard text editor back on. Under Settings and Options, Edit Options, the Miscellaneous Options aren't even there anymore. HELP!!!

Have you looked in the user control settings?

I looked at everything in the control panel and can't find the text editor anywhere, like it just disappeared suddenly. I just took a quick look but I'll look at everything again.

I still can't find it. I thought it was the last thing under Edit Options, right below Date & Time Options, but now there's nothing else below that.

I missed this too.


In the user CP option, go to Edit Options. All the way at the bottom you should see this option. Set it just like in the picture.

I just checked and the last thing under Edit Options is Date & Time Options. There aren't any Miscellaneous Options.

They changed the system so that option isn't available any more. You've probably noticed by now a few other changes too.

I noticed that the forum looked a little different. If changing the Message Editor Interface is no longer an option, why didn't it default to the Standard Editor when the system changed?

I have no clue as to what they kept, added or changed.

One thing they did say they added was infinite scrolling. Not sure any of us have the time to find out if it's truly infinite.
