Try out the new toolbar (with spell check, word count, and more!)
We would like to invite you to test the new toolbar that is being considered for Blogit. It works for both Windows and Mac OS users, and provides access to some great new features requested by Blogit members:
Spell check Word count Find and replace Paste as plain text, or paste from Word without problems (no need to paste into Notepad first to remove special formatting) Works with many more web browsers, including the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari (some features may not be available on all browsers) Use any color you like for your text or the text background, not just a limited selection Insert special symbols easily (for example, the copyright symbol ©) Add text as subscript and superscript, or strikethrough texb text you want to change but not delete Powerful table editing Larger, more colorful emoticons
Please note that although the new toolbar will be available to all subscribers when testing is complete, some features in the final version may only be available to Blogit Silver or Gold subscribers.
Please also note that this toolbar takes a few seconds longer to show up on your Write page and that the beta test does not allow you to use this toolbar for comments at this time. If you are on the comments page (adding or deleting a comment, for instance), you will only see the old interface. Once the beta test is over, the new toolbar will be available for writing/editing both posts and comments.
