Is the formatting toolbar disabled for anyone else?

Works for me.

I almost thought it was some new "this site works best in internet explorer" bullshit targetting chrome instead until I realized I'm using Firefox and it would have prevented me from using it were that the case.

@Mercutio I suspect what might be happening is that you may have clicked the button to toggle BB code. When this is selected the formatting bar becomes disabled. This is a non-intuitive GUI option and not your fault, it's poorly designed and doesn't communicate why this happens.

Let me know if this fixes the issue for you.

Ah. So it is. That's weird. The formatting bar icons are all pretty low contrast and it definitely didn't register as being any more enabled than the other icons.

That format bar UI is poorly designed when the BB code is enabled. At the very least some alt-txt or something should indicate why it's disabled to make it a little better.
