  1. Looks like some of these links to the websites are not working.
    Who added the International Development Enterprises?

  2. I’ve fixed these, but future fyi: When you add a link, it just reads as text. You have to “link” the link. Highlight the text of the link, copy it, hit the link button in the formatting bar, paste the text and change the target to “open in a new window”.

  3. My formatting bar actually appears as css text so I cannot do any formatting. I have talked to tech support but cannot fix it, so there may be a repetative issue with this.
