The theme development forum was created to aid those who are developing themes for Drupal. This forum is not for issues you may be having with contrib themes. Issues with contrib themes should be placed in the issue queue of the theme in question. Please respect this.
If you you have drupal installed already and are seeking a theme, have a question about a specific theme and what it does or if it will fit your use case, please place your questions in the Post installation forum.
I'm using the Nexus theme for my new site and noticed that there are no options to format the text (such as with bold, italics, etc) without using html code. This seems strange to me - is it really only possible to format text using html or am I missing something?
