    Question Formatting text in a textbox

    Is it possible to do the following after clicking on an icon:
    * bolding text
    * pasting text
    * making an e-mail link
    * making a website link
    * making bullets
    into a text box? If so, how do I do that? I have to build an admin section for a client of mine. That is why I am asking. Thanks in advance.

    you can either use bbcode, or an html input widget like editize.

    This all sounds like client side stuff that would be used with javascript. I don't know if you realize this but PHP is a server side language and does not handle things like that. You should try posting this in the javascript forum.
