    Default Story Creator Question

    When my son gets to the story creator page, there pops up a little box for him to type his name in. The box looks like one of those "Hello I am..." name stickers. We can't seem to type in the box. Can't even get a cursor to go in there and we've tried just typing his name to see if it automatically fills it in there but nothing appears. So then after he's written his story, under the title, where it says "Created by" it just says anonymous since they don't have his name. He'd really like his name on his stories. What are we doing wrong??

    Thanks

    I was able to type my name by just clicking once where the name goes and starting to type. My cursor did not show up when I clicked.

    Can you try that and let me know if it works for you?

    I just tried it again, on several lessons and using several methods.

    If you click anywhere on the screen (not just in the white box where the name will appear), that should activate it. There will be a delay of a couple of seconds (maybe longer, if you have dialup), and then you should be able to type, without regard to where your cursor might be.

    Maybe you are typing during the short delay following your click. Try waiting a few seconds first.

    If that doesn't work, we'll post a question to see if anyone else is experiencing this. If it has to do with your computer, maybe someone else has had the same problem and figured it out.
