No advanced editor in poll forum?

Noticed that I don't get the advanced editor in the poll forum.. wanted to insert a picture in a post..

Is this something that can be enabled?

Thanks, Greg

The HTML editor has not been available in the Poll Booth forum since Sep./Oct. 2008 when we changed over from the original HTML WYSIWYG editor to the current one. This is because of a software compatibility problem between the current HTML editor and the polling module, so you're left with the default DNN plain text editor.

A work around, if you desire to use the capabilities of the HTML editor to compose your message content while in the Poll Booth forum.
[*] Have two browser windows/tabs open.
[*] One with the Poll Booth forum / HTML editor "Create New Topic" page open.
[*] The other with one of the existing topics in the Forum Bugs and Testing open.
[/list][*] Then use "Add Reply" function to temporarily open an instance of the HTML editor for the sole purpose of composing any message content you wish to include in your poll.
[*] After you're finished composing the message, switch from the "Normal" view mode to the "HTML" view mode.
[*] Select all of the HTML code (e.g. right-click > Select All or {Ctrl+A}).
[*] Copy the selected code to your clipboard (e.g. right-click > Copy or {Ctrl+C}).
[*] Switch windows/tabs to the one having the "Poll Booth Forum" - "Add New Topic" HTML editor page active and paste the copied code into the plain text editor's message content area (e.g. right-click > Paste or {Ctrl+V}).
[*] Then finally click the "Submit" button to post the reply.
[*] If finished then close the browser window/tab that contains the Forum Bugs and Testing forum and the HTML editor, which simply cancels the "Add Reply" request without posting anything.
