Question Restoring legacy post editing functions on the new "upgraded" system?

1. How do you imbed a hyperlink into words you type? I no longer see the globe icon so how do you do this?

2. How do you vary font size in a post?

3. How do you scroll to the top of the page of a thread? When I move the scroll bar on the side to the top, the page falls down toward the middle.

Thanks

You can bring back the old-style post editor if you prefer.

  1. Go to MyFlyerTalk, and click Edit Options on the left panel [ or use this direct link: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/prof...do=editoptions ]

  2. Scroll to "Miscellaneous Options", close to the bottom of the page.

  3. In the first box in Miscellaneous Options, Change to the editor style of your preference. "Standard Editor" is closest to the old one.


There are other options on that page that you may find improve your experience.

Thanks! I just followed your instructions and the functions removed from this new release are back. What a shame the new release sacrifices old functionalities.
