It is replaced by the Quicktag toolbar on the Text tab, see Visual / Text tab below.
Visual / Text tabs
When editing your organisation, you have the option of using the Visual or Text mode of the editor. The visual mode lets you see your post as is, while the Text mode shows you the code and replaces the WYSIWYG editor buttons with quicktags. These quicktags are explained as follows.

- i – <em></em> HTML tag for emphasis of text (i.e. italicize).
- b-quote – <blockquote></blockquote> HTML tag to distinguish quoted or cited text.
- del – <del></del> HTML tag to label text considered deleted from a post. Most browsers display as striked through text. (Assigns datetime attribute with offset from GMT (UTC))
- link – <a href=”http://example.com”></a> HTML tag to create a hyperlink.
- ins – <ins></ins> HTML tag to label text considered inserted into a post. Most browsers display as underlined text. (Assigns datetime attribute with offset from GMT (UTC))
- ul – <ul></ul> HTML tag will insert an unordered list, or wrap the selected text in same. An unordered list will typically be a bulleted list of items.
- ol – <ol></ol> HTML tag will insert a numbered list, or wrap the selected text in same. Each item in an ordered list are typically numbered.
- li – <li></li> HTML tag will insert or make the selected text a list item. Used in conjunction with the ul or ol tag.

monospaced font, such as Courier.

- Close Tags – Closes any open HTML tags left open–but pay attention to the closing tags. Try to make sure the tags enclose what you want, and in the proper way.

You can also change the publish date to a date in the past to back-date the publication of your organisation profile. Change the settings to the desired time and date. You must also hit the “Publish” button when you have completed your organisation profile to publish at the desired time and date.
The Publish button publishes your profile on the website.

By default, at the time the organisation profile is first auto-saved, that will be the date and time set for your organisation profile.
