Too many advertisments
I love the AT&T page but I just received another advertisment section. I think I will change to a different home page. I am tired of companies making money off of me.

Amen to that! We pay for enough to AT&T for the "service" we get. Ads are an unnecessary nuisance! If they have to be on our home page, we should have the option to move them lower. I have much better uses for the higher places on my homepage!

There's been a solution to rid yourself of ads for quite a while now, in the form of adblockplus for firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865

Video ads are the absolute worst. Now you can also add new the new pop-ups for TV shows.

Adblock will block even video ads. If it' doesn't have it usually right above the ad you will see the word "adblock" and you just click that and it disappears.

Use Firefox with Adblock, Flashblock, and noscript. Adblock nukes the banner ads. Flashblock blocks all those flash animations and video ads that suck CPU and bandwidth. Noscript stops those nasty info stealing, redirecting, malware injecting sites. Now, if I could only figure out how to get carriage returns to work on this lousy bbs software at&t uses, I'd be set.

Hi there,

 

When writing you post, make sure the tab is set to "rich text" and not "html".  If it's on Html, you will not be able to use "enter" as you would with rich text.  Let me know if you have any further issues!   :smileyhappy:

I've tried it both ways.[cr/lf] This is rich text.[cr/lf] Same result.[cr/lf] This should display as four lines with [cr/lf] showing where I hit return...

Hey there!  When you go to the reply box, at the top of the box should be three tabs, "Rich Text", "HTML" and "Preview".  If you select "Rich Text", you should be able to hit enter like a word document instead of the coding needed for HTML. 

 

I've attached a screenshot below.  Let me know if you need any further assistance! :smileyhappy:

I've tested your account and it works correctly when utilizing the "rich text" tab.  I can set your account to use "rich text" by default.  Let me know if you would like to do that and I can do it or assist you in doing so. 

 

Thanks,

Trey
