      Where does this live?

      It doesn't show me what kind of 'Forum' this is.

        Apparently. Though I stumbled on that.

      I am trying to reply to Phil's test message. I am leaving the title empty to see whether it will carry the original title plus something like 'Re'.

        Nice work Fred. We should do that.

        Reply works like this for staff accounts. We will fix.

          Please have it pre-fill the title on giving you the reply form so that you can empty it should you wish to do so.

    Where's my Vulture

    On the first post?

    1. Drewc Gold badge

      It's on my snag list. Staff accounts behave differently - one for the CMS and one for the public interface. If you make a post through Trois you get the vulture roundel, but your post is not automatically accepted. Weird.

      Your post is automatically accepted if you post using the commenters' interface. But there is no trois roundel

    'Bout time we updated them to the actual vulture

    right at the top, our logo rather than the old roundel.

    Sure does present challenging pages. I believe we're shifting these into our reworked 'Account' pages soon, if not , we better had.

    More HTML ... scratch that

    what I meant to say was you can use s or indeed the full strike tag in addition to em, b, i and strong tags.

    and indeed a href if you are suitable entitled.

    Testing, testing...

    Looking at Minty's comment, and the "plain text only" imperative that still sits in the post box, can't resist a test...

    <em>This is emphasised</em>

    <strong>This is strong</strong>

    <strong><em>This has strong emphasis</em></strong>

    Can we do <sup>Super</sup><sub>Sub</sub>script?

    Hmmm, Interesting.......


    Link Raspberry Pi


    This text is bold

    This text is strong

    <big>This text is big</big>


    for i = 1 to 10

    print i

    next i


    This text is emphasized

    This text is italic

    <small>This text is small</small>

    This is<sub> subscript</sub> and <sup>superscript</sup>


    for i = 1 to 10

    print i

    next i

      Yeah, some sort of code tag seems important on the Register!

      I try a few things out and some twatspanner downvotes me?

      1. Drewc Gold badge


        Peculiar downvote, that. Have an upvote from me!

      " soooo ... am I a <b>power</b> user? "

      No - but <em>nor am I</em>

      P.S. Pretty please!

          <em>I really should try this.</em>. And maybe <i>this</i>. Just to check.

            Meh. Linkage privs would have been nice.

      try now

    Out of curiosity ...

    I've been reading here, on and off, for a couple weeks now.

    What is the point? AOLish HTML tags for ordinary users who can't even figure out how to format the English Language properly to begin with?

    It'll all end in tears ... mark my words.

    Or perhaps I'm missing something ... wouldn't be the first time. Regardless, this round's on me. Onwards & upwards is my motto ...

    1. BristolBachelor Gold badge

      I think that it is early days, the addition of formatting for people who have been hanging out here almost since before HTML existed (joke!) won't be a problem for them. Oh and we are no ordinary users, we are.........¡¡¡Super commentards!!!

      For newer people who studied computer science at university when the sylabus only covered how to type a document in MS Word, I'm sure there will be something more user friendly along later :p

    Testing the obvious.

    <script type="text/javascript">window.alert("oh awesome");</script>

    Drat, doesn't work.

      Re: Testing the obvious.

      Our oversight - we have upgraded you ahead of the game.
