The costs are certainly a resolvable issue for me. I have the backend of the site set up in such a way than 99% of the administering is automated. Multiple backups, DDoS protection, emails, etc. Reall...

Post: RE: It doesn't work

@Losty its the editor that renders the BBcode rather than showing the tags (i.e. bold text shows as bold in the editor itself) I can try and mess with the plugin to make it work always.
