wlvnspectre writes: I am using Opera 9.21. The strange thing is that all the other text boxes work just fine. This one for example is black text on a white background. Sat Jun 09 2007 11:34PM Report
wlvnspectre writes: I just tried it in my alternate browser Firefox 2.X.X and I got the white text on black background with something I didn't know I was missing from both the forum post editor and the blog post editor, the toolbar that is at the top of it. Now, Opera is fully web standards compliant and they include small tweaks to support many pages that break the standards for IE. For this and other reasons Opera can spoof its browser ID. When I leave the browser ID as Opera, or change it to IE, it doesn't work. However when I change it to Firefox, it works fine. When you change Opera's ID to Firefox all that supposedly changes is the ID. In the Browser Wars, Microsoft used to make some of its webserving software actually send gibberish or scramble webpages when the the browser IDed itself as Opera. That's why Opera started spoofing. Maybe the person who wrote this editor doesn't like Opera.... Sun Jun 10 2007 12:25AM Report

wlvnspectre writes: Thanks Meddle. I tried it and it works but still no toolbar. I guess for now I'll just have to lie about my browser by setting the browser to spoof Firefox on MMORPG.COM. That way I can ID myself as Opera everywhere else. You could try contacting Opera, they have a department that helps web designers make, keep, or fix web pages so they work with Opera, often finding what can be done to help.

skywisenight writes: wlvnspectre, it's actually the 3rd party editor that we are using, FCKeditor, that is having a problem with Opera (and Safari). It's on my this-week-list to see why and see if there is a hack or anything I can put in that will allow even basic editing, and sorry for the bad degrading of the text area earlier, I overlooked it when doing the css for the blogs.
