Original Request:
I use chrome. When I go to post an entry, in the box under rich text editor, the menu isn't there. I click html and nothing happens. I try to write in the box and nothing happens. So I've been updating my journal via the start page in the tiny box under the announcements, tags, and so on.

Still having the issue yes. Screen cap.

I can't click inside the box and clicking html or rich editor doesn't do anything.

Dear vickyblueeyez,

Since you're still having this problem, can you please confirm which version of Chrome you are currently using, and then try downloading any updates if they are available to see if the problem resolves? You can do this by clicking the Customize button near the top right corner of your browser, and selecting About Google Chrome from the list.

Dear vickyblueeyez,

I'm sorry you've been experiencing issues with our Rich Text Editor and I cannot apologize enough for the very long time it took us to get back to you. To be honest with you, this has been a known issue for a while now but we don't know why exactly as we can't really reproduce and this seems to only happen to some users in a random fashion. That's definitely no excuse for not answering your request, though.

If you're still experiencing the same issues, here's what I can suggest at this point: make sure your browser options are set to default, disable all extensions you may be using so you can see if one is interfering (you can also try reenabling them one by one if that seems to be the case), clear your browser's cache ( and, as a last resort, uninstall and reinstall Chrome entirely.

However, if none of this helps, I'm afraid I can only suggest using our beta update page instead --you can turn it on at

I'm aware our beta page only has an HTML editor so it may not be a valid alternative for you. Our developers have been searching high and low for a new Rich Text one, which would be bug-free and a good replacement. So far, no good.

I'm so very sorry I can't suggest better solutions or better alternatives. My sincere apologies again for the inconvenience and for the delay in getting back to you.
