New toolbar now default for all users
Based on your input, the new toolbar is now ready for all Blogit users. Thank you very much for your feedback during the beta testing period.
The new toolbar is now the default for all editing pages (blog entries, comments, and About Me pages). Please note that this toolbar may be slower to load the first time you use it but it should load quickly on subsequent use. The toolbar provides many of the features requested by members over the last year:
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).
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 as well as the small emoticons from the old toolbar.
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 (as long as you re-enter your Blogit password).
Better security for readers -- browser "scripts" are automatically removed, so copying and pasting excerpts from other web sites is safer. Works with the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari (although some features may not be available on all browsers).
More fonts which match the choices in the easy template editor in Blogit Silver and Gold
When using a browser that doesn't support the new toolbar, paragraph breaks and links are saved properly.
The new toolbar is available to all Blogit users although some features in the future may only be available to Blogit Silver or Gold subscribers.
