Hi: first of all, this is the first attempt of me building a website. And I have to say, yola made it very easy for dummies like me. Thank you very much for that.
Okay, this is probalby a typical newbie question: I have problems moving the cursor within a text/paragraph. I cannot use the up/down arrows on my key board, nor can I just place the cursor anywhere I want. I can only place it at the very beginning or at the end of my text.
I also cant figure out how to mark a single word (or a string of words or a paragraph). Automatically, all the words in the entire test box get highlighted.
Thanks for sharing some insight with me.
Tony.

Hello Tony,

I'm sorry you are having this problem and would like to help get it worked out!

Are you by any chance using Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 2? We have recently upgraded our text widget which means that people using old browser versions may experience some difficulty. This happens when clicking in the text widget does not bring the cursor correctly to the place that you clicked. The text widget will be selected, but the cursor may go to the beginning or end of the content in the widget.

Our recommendation is to upgrade your browser to a more recent version as support for these browsers is being withdrawn across the internet. We recommend using the latest version of Firefox and you can download it here.

If you are not using one of these browser versions, and you are still having problems, please let us know.

You gotta be kidding me. I just posted my question and you already (within a matter of minutes) answered it??!! I'm speechless.
What can I say: Thank you so much - yes, I use IE 6 and I can't upgrade since it's my company's laptop. But I will get my personal computer back soon and then everything should work fine.
Thanks again for the quick turnaround. Much appreciated.
