I am guessing there is something I need to do and I hadnt previously noticed but other than the main blog all other sub-blogs do not seem to be activated properly.
The settings is as it should be, I have ticked for all buttons to be included. Even the excerpt area appears in the post edit area. But the buttons do not.
The main blog is working fine hence my not having noticed.Not sure if it is important but I tried on a network basis activate and an individual site activate with no difference.
All the best,
