For some time now people have been struggling with inputing their entries onto DD – at least it seems that those who were using the HTML editor and IE8 were having issues.
I think there was an incompatibility with the old HTML editor which for some reason was only showing for users of IE8. Unfortunately I don't have IE8 to test this on, but I have installed the latest version of the CKEditor widget for use on DearDiary and I'm using it to type this message (in Firefox on a Mac, but at least it's working on that platform!) so please give it a go and if you had trouble before, let me know if this fixes it for you.
If it doesn't fix it, I'll have to dig deeper – but I hope it does, cos I dunno where I'll end up digging to if it doesn't!
Thanks for your patience and sorry it took so long!
