Hm, I think I am confused. That ad I linked in my last post (above) for example:
I went into the ad, edited it, and entered in the BB codes myself - manually. Then I saved the ad. The codes display, but they don't bold or italicize the text like this sentence. Instead, it displays the text like [b ]bold[/b ] and [i ]italicize[/i ] inline.
Shouldn't that work?
