Forum: Radiant CMS Textile (and other) filters have no effect - still see straight html

New install of Radiant here, 0.9.1;
extensions show Textile 1.0 (and other filters too of course).

My problem is:
I edit a page, and change the Filter from <none> to Textile, click
Save changes;
then I edit the page again, and I still see straight html.

Textile is a wysiwyg editor, right? So I should not be seeing html,
right?

My guess is that I have hosed up the install somehow.
This guess is further supported by the fact that I have broken image
links for the up and down arrows in the Content page.

Any snippets of advice appreciated.

No, that's all as it should be. There are extensions that will give you
that sort of translated view - last time I needed one, tinypaper[1]
looked best - but the textile and markdown filters don't work that way.
They allow you to use different kinds of shorthand [2] in order to
simplify what you have to type and edit, but they don't interpret it for
you as you go along.

It can be difficult to persuade word processor users of the benefits of
textile or markdown, but if you're used to code you'll probably find it
very pleasing. Give yourself a chance to get used to it before you go
back to wysinwyg.

best,

will

Does anyone have step by step instructions for using 'mailer' and
'forms' to create  an assessment form that gets sent to a certain email.
It would be most helpful if this form could be paginated.

Thanks
