This may seem stupid but how do I actually write in my blog, when I start my new blog or edit it it looks nothing like the blog in the help section. I can write the title but then I can't figure out how to write the body, it just has a bunch of info saying Post Body, Tool Bar, increase/decrease size etc. But I can't actually write anything

I've read the tutorial, but as I mentioned the blog template that pops up for me looks nothing like the one in the tutorial and I am unable to write anything in it

Hi Greg,

Sorry but I can't visualise this in my minds eye.

To take a screen shot on a PC Hold down the ALT key and click the PRT SCR key.

Next: Open Paint in the windows accessories.
Paste the screen shot with the edit facility.
Save it as a file name somewhere.
Go to the Forum and click on the image icon at the bottom of the dialogue box and it will guide you through posting the image.
