Queen, I know I am being a pain, but I don't know what Rich Text editor is or how to proceed, please feel free to explain it to me as if I was a 5 year old ( I'm 71 that could also be the reason) .
No, you are NOT being a pain. If you don't know something please ask. I and others will do our best to answer your questions and work with you until you understand.
This is the Rich Text Editor
Using it you will be able to bold, quote, change font color and size and do other things by using the icons.
For example, to bold you drag your cursor over whatever you want to appear bold then click the B icon. Hovering your cursor over each icon will tell you what it does.
In addition this may also be helpful to you Help Topic: Posting
This is the standard editor:
Notice how the icons are grayed out. You will not be able to use them in the standard editor. Instead, you will have to use BB code for bolding, colors, quotes, etc. (since you do have a quote option in every post, you won't need to use the quote function of the editor unless you quote a source such as something from a different webpage)
You can toggle between the 2 by clicking the first icon in the first row (circled in red in 2nd screenshot).
I urge you to go to the Test forum and try using some of the functions and become familiar with them. I am a firm believer that one learns MORE by DOING. I/we can tell you how to do something until the middle of the next century but only by doing it yourself will you REALLY learn how it is done.
If you do test things and run into problems ASK and we will continue to work you with until you get it. edit to add:
BBCode uses tags you will have manually input by wrapping the text in using the appropriate tags
[b]what you want to bold here[/b]
[quote]what you want to quote here[/quote]
[u]what you want to underline here[/u]
I know this may be more than what you expected but since I am trying to explain the difference between rich text and standard I figured I may as well include it all.
