as y'all have noticed, I've been working on the page.  

the editor has been a major PITA for a long time.  I think I've whooped it.  

notice your new buttons... well, some of them are new. re familiarize then, if you would.  know this, though: there are hidden functions.  you can now drag and drop an image.. no more uploading it or cumbersome web addresses to screw around with... all you literally have to do is click and hold it, and drag it into the text editor box.  boom.  it auto uploads to a place on the web and 'should' stay there forever.  if you choose, you can still use the old way too. 

the big one though: formatting.  though i've only 'rudely' tested it, it seems to work.  you should be able to copy something from a document or from the web, and paste it here retaining the formatting.  you 'should' be able to do this directly into the editor, OR, you can choose the little 'paste text' or 'paste' buttons on the strip above the editor and do it form there.  the difference is one is text only, and the other is 'mixed' content such as images with the text.  

youtube, facebook, twitter, et al- all work the same as they did.  

on my list remains the auto-suggest when you start typing a username (specifically in PM's or the mentions tool), and the alerts (the little red number in your alerts triangle thingy).... once those are whooped? we gots some nice digs here. and once that is so, I'm locking it down.

as an example, the following was copy and pasted from our very own publisher/aggregate.  it originated on ESPN.com.  notice the links (citation) are still active with no further effort than copy and paste.  note: the image, while editing your post and using the copy and paste function, doesn't show up.. it will when it's posted, though. 



Swinney gets biggest deal in college football
8:03 am | April 26, 2019 | Go to Source | Author:


11:47 AM ET

Clemson and coach Dabo Swinney agreed to a 10-year, $93 million deal on Friday, making it the largest deal in college football history.
Swinney, who has won two national championships with the Tigers, is on par to make the same average salary as Alabama coach Nick Saban. Both are set to average $9.3 over the course of their respective deals.
“We intend to continue pursuing championships,” Dabo Swinney said in a statement announcing the deal. 
Swinney, who began his Clemson head coaching career as interim coach in 2008, has led a remarkable rise for a school that had one national championship in its history before he took over from Tommy Bowden.
With his folksy charm and culture centered on his “All In” mentality, Clemson has emerged as a force in college football with no signs of letting up.
With Trevor Lawrence back behind center, Clemson goes into the 2019 season as a heavy favorite to make it back to the College Football Playoff.
Swinney’s first deal as full-time head coach at Clemson when he was promoted by then-AD Terry Don Phillips at the end of the 2008 season paid him $800,000 a year.

“He way overpaid me,” Swinney quipped Friday to ESPN.
Swinney is set to make $8.25 million in the first two years of the new deal, going all the way up to $10 million in 2028, the last year of the contract.
“I am grateful and humbled by the incredible commitment Clemson has made to me, my family and our football program,” Swinney said in a statement. “For more than a decade, we have given our all to provide this world-class university and our incredible fans the championship football program they deserve — to live up to Best is the Standard.
“With this contract, we make a collective statement that we intend to continue pursuing championships and developing total student-athletes for years to come. Our sustained continuity in vision, people and culture has been a key ingredient to our success, on- and off-the field. I am thankful for the leadership we have at Clemson and appreciate all they do for Clemson Football. I am truly blessed to be your Head Football Coach.”
If Swinney were to leave for another collegiate head coaching position in the first two years of his deal, the buyout would be $4 million. But the buyout increases to $6 million if he were to leave for Alabama over the next two years. There is no buyout if he leaves for an NFL job.
“Dabo’s leadership of our football program has brought value, exposure and unprecedented levels of success not only to our athletics program but to the entire university,” Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said in a statement.
“He has demonstrated the ability to consistently achieve at the highest level on and off the field, and he has done so with a commitment to integrity and core principles. This new agreement is evidence of Clemson’s steadfast commitment to Dabo and to our football program, and we are thrilled that he and his family will be a part of our community for years to come.”
Swinney is entering his 17th overall season at Clemson, including his time as an assistant coach from 2003 to 2007. His 116 head coaching wins at Clemson rank second all-time.
Meanwhile, Radakovich agreed to a contract extension through June 30, 2024. He is set to make $1.2 million for the 2019-20 athletic season, going up to $1.4 million in the final year of the deal.
ESPN’s Chris Low contributed to this report.

I've been dragging and dropping images for a long time

I'm probably missing something

Yeah the drag and drop was always hit or miss.  I noticed in the jersey countdown.  Sometimes it worked, sometimes not.  Sometimes it depended on what browser you used.

Although now none of the formatting options are showing up for me.  Just today

How are you supposed to switch tabs from the one that the pic is on to the one that cfb51 is on, without unclicking and reclicking the mouse?

Drag the pick or link over the cfb51 tab at the top of the page, hover over the tab and the page should open
