Is the dropdown gone from all editors (story admin, story submissions, ...)? If so, it could be the gl_postmodes table. Not sure how that could happen, but check that it's still there and not empty.

The dropdown is created pretty much directly from the postmodes database table - that's why I was asking if that was still okay. There isn't even a template file involved, so it couldn't be a theme issue - unless you edited all the editors.

When you call up an editor, can you check the HTML (in your browser) to see if the dropdown is there in the HTML but not displayed for some reason?

Okay, after looking at your site I think there has been a misunderstanding. The standard post modes (HTML Formatted, Plain Old Text) are still there - you're only missing the Advanced Editor option. I thought they were all gone!

The problem with the Advanced Editor is that you disabled it for your account. Check My Account -> Layout & Language > Use Advanced Editor

That's a new option in 1.7.0 and it should be enabled by default. There's a bug in 1.7.0, though, that disables that user option when you change your account settings before you enable FCKeditor. I guess that's what happened here.
