New version of toolbar now available.
Thank you very much for all your feedback and bug reports on the new toolbar which many of you have been beta testing. We have used your input to modify and improve the toolbar as can be seen in the latest version available here.
Since many Blogit members have switched to the new toolbar already, we're planning to make it the standard so we would very much appreciate any final feedback and issues.
Please note that the toolbar may be slower to load the first time you use it but it should load quickly on subsequent use. Here is a list of improvements and fixes in the latest version:
No "signed-out" frustration -- you may now post what you've typed even if you were away from the computer for a long time and are no longer signed in (after re-entering your Blogit password) Loads more quickly, especially when editing an existing post More emoticons -- the small emoticons from the old toolbar have been added
Better security for readers -- browser "scripts" are automatically removed, so copying and pasting excerpts from other web sites is safer
More fonts -- now matches the choices in the easy template editor in Blogit Silver/Gold
When using a browser that doesn't support the new toolbar, paragraph breaks and links are now saved properly
Minor bug fixes (e.g. the emoticons toolbar icon is now consistent)
For a complete list of features available thru this new toolbar -- such as word count, spelling check etc. -- please see our original post here.
