I've lost my Format Selector!?

edited January 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi all, the Format Selector ('Format comments as...') options are not visible on my Vanilla forum, even though I have the option 'Show the comment format type selector when adding comments' ticked. Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing? (I've looked high and low) I've noticed in the database that, in the user record, the DefaultFormatType is 'Text' - has this anything to do with it? I am very confused! Any help appreciated. Keir

    More info... I installed the BBCodeParser extension ( and now the 'Text' option is showing up, next to the BBCode options. There is no HTML option. Also checking/unchecking the 'Show the comment format type selector when adding comments' has no effect - the Format Selector is always visible now (although I think this could be the extension forcing it to show...).

    Ok, I'm a plonker...I was missing the HTML Formatter add-on. I thought it'd had been bundled with the latest Vanilla. Apologies

    The HTML Formatter does not appear in searches in Add-ons but can be reached here:

    It shows up in searches for me... Admittedly, it is the 6th down (why not first?), but it is there nonetheless.

    Yeh it is for me too now. Odd. Thanks for input Stash.
