    Preview is not working right this morning. Paragraph separations do not show up. Inserted photos show URL, not the photo.

    When I submit it, the submitted post is fine. It's just the previews that is wonky.

    Explorer.

    It's still doing it. In preview this whole post looks like one line.

    But when I post, it looks OK.

    Had problems with my beloved IE and had to download Chrome to get posted and get things running smoothly.

    Had a bit of help from one of the BYCers and now I can stay on Google and surf the net! However I miss my "Favorites" listings.

    I haven't been able to duplicate it. Can you take a screenshot of what you see in preview mode and post it here?

    If you can tell me how. I'm not computer savvy enough to do a lot of things most people take for granted.

    EweSheep, here's a link that tells you how to import your bookmarks from your old browser:
    http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2007/03/google-bookmarks-faq.html

    Ridgerunner, here's an article on how to do screenshots:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/how-to-take-a-screenshot-the-easy-way

    It's simpler for me -- once I figured it out. [​IMG] In "all programs," my computer (Windows 7) has something called the Snipping Tool. I make the screenshot, save it to my computer, then select it in the insert image icon in a reply box.

    I'll give it a try.

    I'll also include a photo.

    Let's see what snipping tool will do

    Thanks for the note! We're seeing a few odd problems with posting, previewing, and editing since yesterday's release. Our engineers are looking into it. Thanks for your patience as we try to find and fix these problems!

    Downloaded the Chrome and with the help of a few BYCers, I was able to get going and posting again! [​IMG]
