I tested on your "Mom's forum"board signing on as user,"test" and password "testing". You are correct, the side panel does so show that "BBCode is on" when posting, but when I tried to use it (as for italics) in a post, the preview showed the code as typed and not the text in italic, so BBcodes don't appear to be working, just as you have stated. When I tested in the "Dad's forum," BBcodes work. The difference is that they have different style themes (the Dad's forum has one of the default styles and the Mom's forum has a custom style).
So, first, I would wonder if perhaps something in your custom style theme is causing this. Maybe you should first try selecting one of the default style themes (like subsilver2) to see if this still persists.
