I have install a second site using BE.  Everything seems to be working as expected except for one item.  When you go to "Add Entry" the format controls are missing. (meaning the buttons.  E.g. - Bold, Underline, font color, etc...)  I DO NOT have "Use raw HTML editor</label>" checked.

Even if I change templates the format controls are missing.

I am missing something obvious but I cannot fiqure it out.

Can someone provide any direction?

It's not working because you exceeded the allowed BE installations per user ... the editor menu auto turns off if you install BE more than once.  J/K of course :)

It sounds like the entire tinyMCE WYSIWYG is not loading at all ... and you're just seeing a plain textarea.

Do you see any JavaScript errors occurring?  If you have Firefox, you can check the Error Console (Tools -> Error Console).  Either the tinyMCE JS file isn't loading, or the file loads, but then it's getting stuck trying to 'convert' the plain textarea into a WYSIWYG editor.

What happens if you check and then uncheck the 'raw HTML editor' option?

I've not seen this before ... so just taking some guesses.

Thanks Ben.  Your suggestion lead me to remember I had made a small edit to the tinyMCS.ascx file and missed a comma.

Here is to being a rookie!

Also as I read the first sentence to your reply, about half way through, I said out loud....WTF. Funny!
