How to turn off the "Rich Text Editor" (I.e. where you type messages)

There are two editors available on this forum:

1) The "Rich Text" editor - enables you to preview what the final post will look like (i.e. show pictures, bold text, etc...)

2) The "Plain Text" editor - only shows you the code of your final posts (i.e. "Only plain text")

This is the rich text editor:

You can temporarily turn off the rich text editor by clicking the "Disable rich-text" link below it. Clicking that link enabled the plain text editor:

If you don't like the rich text editor, you can set the plain text editor as the default editor. To do this, first go into your profile settings - the link located in the top right area of the forum:

Clicking the "edit your profile" link will bring you to the edit profile page:

On the edit profile page, under "Confirm Password", there will be a little arrow, with text beside it which reads "Wysiwyg Editor Settings". Click this text in order to expand the text editor settings (Wysiwyg = "What You See Is What You Get")

Once you have expanded the "Wysiwyg Editor Settings", uncheck the box beside "Filtered HTML".

Then scroll to the bottom of the page and hit "Save"
