Where did the editing toolbar go?

I haven't done anything to my main Yola site for months. There have apparently been quite a few changes since I last worked on it, and I can't find the things I need in order to make progress. Please, where has the editing toolbar gone? I want to change the font of my paragraphs, for example -- where is the toolbar for that feature? Or, alternatively, I have two tables on my page. I want to move the top table to the bottom, and move the bottom table to the top. I know how to do it, but I can't figure out how to access the page that I need in order to accomplish it.

Hello Keara,

If you are clicked in a Text Widget you will see the Text Editing Toolbar appear and you can highlight text and then choose the various options, here is a screen shot:



If your tables are in HTML Widgets, you can move your widgets around your page by clicking on the blue bar on the top of the widget and dragging it until you see a blue outline - you can then drop the widget and it will appear at its new location.

Let us know if we can further assist.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hello Melody,

This has been noted by a couple of other users very recently. It may very well be a bug possibly related to an operating system &/or browser. Would you mind posting the OS you are using plus the browser and version number? This may help to pin it down.

Hello Melody

Have you checked if the Text Editing Toolbar appears when you click into the Text Widget? Does the toolbar show up when you add a new Text Widget and click into it to add text?

Hello Brian

To the best of my knowledge this wasn't an error on our end. Did you try clicking into the Text Widget?

If that doesn't work, can you please let me know
  • which operating system

  • which browser

  • and which browser version

you are using?

Please also tell me your URL for me to be able to locate your Yola account in our system.

I'm having this problem now - nothing I do is making the Text Editing Toolbar appear. I'm on Firefox 20.0.1 and Windows 7, and apart from sometimes having to click out of and back into a text box, I've not had this problem before. It's the same in the new and old site editor. Anyone else? www.rugbyleagueratings.com
