Is it possible to introduce "rich text" in these forums whereby people can bolden, italicise, underline, colourise or otherwise highlight parts of their posts? Most other forums have that facility.

It's already available, Arun.

You should see a formatting tooolbar above the message composition box that allows you to do all that and more.

And if you don't see the toolbar, regular BB code will do the trick as well. BB code essentially works like HTML, but you use square brackets instead of arrow brackets. Do exactly what you would do for HTML formatting, including the backslash to close a command, but use the square brackets - left to begin, right to close.

This site's BB code 'cheat sheet' can be found here:

Thanks people. If possible, I'd like to find and use that toolbar but it is not showing on my computer. Perhaps I need to tick some box to enable it?

PS: I found it in the "Settings" tab. Thank you very much people.
