Are there any tricks for enabling WYSIWYG mode in the Chrome browser?

I have this option set in my options page and it works find in IE9 and in Firefox, but I only get the "Standard Editor" when I post.

Maybe a plugin that would permit Chrome to give me WYSIWIG mode?

I'm using Chrome 15.0.874.121 m

Do you have javascript (different than Java, despite the unfortunate similarity in names) enabled in your browser configuration?

Yup - javascript is enabled in Chrome for all sites.

Using Chrome I can even visit other vBulletin sites and WYSIWIG works with no problems. It's just here that it's not working...

It looks like vBulletin 4.1 rsolves the issue and supports WYSIWYG mode in webkit browsers such as Chrome.

Are there any plans to upgrade DBSTalk to vBulletin 4.1 or later?

This is why I can use WYSIWYG mode in Chrome at other forums - they upgraded to 4.1 or later, so I'm hoping DBSTalk will upgrade soon too!

If this is like the vBulletin installation that I administer (www.tugbbs.com), the level of customization installed makes upgrading to a new version far from a trivial matter. The next one I undertake is probably gonna take more than one 8-hour day to accomplish.
