I was going to update our Home Page, and when I go to that page, all I see is HTML code. All the choices at the top of where I want to add new information is missing. ie. Font, Color, Background Color, etc.
What happened to it? In fact, I went to all the pages, and none have the editing choices...

Another question, while I'm at it: One of our members has by his name a blue cross (lying on its side). What does this represent and should it be "standing up?"

1) You are trying to edit your page using the Safari or Google Chrome browser. Please use Internet Explorer or Firefox to edit your pages. Our next editor update will support Google Chrome and Safari.

2) That's the USN Military Flag.

Did this computer just automatically "switch?" I edited our Home Page Wednesday using this computer (A Mac) PC crashed...and we just returned home and no one has been on it since Wednesday. How did this happen?

I have no idea. Were you editing with Firefox for Mac before? The one thing I do know is you need to use Firefox for Mac. Safari won't display those icons, and wouldn't have before either.

When I edited our Home Page last Wednesday, I was using a Mac with Safari.
We arrived home this evening, and I was going to edit another page using the same computer. I think it's possessed ! Maybe it just updated itself...
Hopefully, my PC will be in working order tomorrow.

Mystery Solved !
Sub title: I Don't Pay Much Attention...
Because I've never used a Mac in my life, and last week when my PC crashed and I was forced to do so, I stumbled my way through trying to update our Home Page. I found a "shortcut," clicked on it, found our web-site, and edited our page. (Evidently I was using Firefox.)
While we were gone, our housesitter used the computer and moved the shortcut. In its place was "Safari." When I clicked on that same place last night, I didn't notice that Firefox had been replaced by Safari...So, yes, I unknowingly used Firefox last week to edit.

BUT, I still think the computer is possessed.
Thanks for putting up with me. I told you I didn't know what I was doing when I started this project.

The whole "not knowing what you're doing thing" won't last too long. We'll now consider you officially dangerous.
