Why when I try to copy and paste into the description it won't do it but it will in the title ? Also how does the clipboard thing work? I just can't figure that one out. This is the only forum I use that you can't simply just copy and paste. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

It may be what you are trying to copy and paste!

 

The forum is BB code and won't accept HTML?

How come I can just straight up copy and paste right into the title box but can'tI get it to work in the description box? Is there a way to change HTML text in word to bb code?

You cannot copy formatted text into the forum as it uses BB code (except as  a quote, which if you are copying and pasting, I guess it is!)

 

I'm sure there will be converters available to convert text into BB code-I don't know of any. Perhaps try Google?

 

All the best

figured out how to do it, very easy. when you go to make a new thread at the top of the description box is a tool bar and at the top left it looks like a little light switch, click it and the tool bar goes ghost like. you can then paste to it
