1. Use the search feature in this site to see if this has come up before, which it has and likely will for any problems you start out with. For your problem, if you click on "SEARCH" in the top menu bar of this page, typed in "rotate bones", and then look in the results, you'll probably find the answer to your problem much faster than by making a new topic about it. You can also search in the old forums.
2. Use an informative title next time (such as "Bones won't rotate" instead of just "HELP!!!!").

Thats how anim8or works. You can't rotate bones in certain axis when your in a particular view. Simply change your view and try rotating the bone. Its also important to note that the each mouse button rotates the bone in different axis: left click rotates x-axis, right click rotates y-axis, and middle click (if your mouse doesn't have a middle button, Alt+Right button does the same thing) rotates the z-axis.
