Okay so you all know I have been complaining about my computer forever and that I got a new laptop yesterday, yay! I have been having an issue though on the old computer with CM where when I go to reply to a post or make a post it wasn't showing the little tool bar above it where I could add a picture or things like that. I thought it was the old computer. Now though I am on the laptop and it is doing the same thing. Any ideas?

Huh, that's weird, the little tool bar that says "Quote" "Add a photo" "Add a video" "Check Spelling" etc etc?

Maybe you don't have Rich Text enabled? Or you need a java update?

So how do I check to see if I have Java on the new computer and how do I check the rich text thing?

I'm not too sure. But if you go to the top toolbar and bring up the dropdown menu on the My Other Stuff option there should be a thing you can click on that says Answers and when you get to that page you can post a question and I bet there are some moms out there that will see it and can help better than me lol 

When I got my new laptop everything was the same. It also might depend on what browser you are using! Are you using Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox?

Hi Kathellen,

We are aware of the problem and our Tech Team has been trying to find a solution.  It seems to affect computers with slower Internet connections. 

The Tech Team is working to make improvements which should help.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
