When I edit posts here, I always see "BBCode is OFF" under the Smilies.
I have been unable to find a way to enable BBCode; for example, to enable inline images with my posts.
This forum also does not have the usual tools for formatting code blocks, links, etc.

I have looked at the user control panel and it says BBCode is enabled.

Is there a configuration error with my browser or account, or are these typical phpBB features intentionally disabled?
If the latter, it would be nice to reconsider - the readability benefits of formatting and images is significant.

Thanks!

things are disable because there were a lot of attempts to misuse it for
manipulation of search engines, positive and negative..
