Inability to Post

Posted by chadrich, May 19, 2010.

For the past 3 days, I have been unable to post a reply to an existing thread or start a new thread ("thank God", I hear many of you mumble).  Despite reloading the page, restarting my computer, and generally thrashing about, I could not click into the text box (I could start a new thread by picking the forum choice and could type a subject line, but then could not enter any text for the body of the message).  Finally today it seems to have miraculously resolved itself.  So was I the only one, or has this happened before and is there any "trick" to resolve it if it happens again?

Perhaps this is somehow related to where I write and think I post something to an existing thread but then it doesn't seem to go through. I then repost and it then goes through (or sometimes even then doesn't seem to). Later I go back to the thread and see that both versions of my post did make it through, even if it wasn't showing that way on my computer at the time.

BTW, I've never had this problem on any other forum on any other website, so this is something specific to how Snooth does its coding....

Hi Chadrich, my hunch is that you were using IE7. In the future you can trying switching to Firefox or Chrome temporarily.

Apologies for the inconvenience!

Hey, outthere, I know that for a long-established fact... ;-)

You are correct about the IE7 assumption.  I'll seek alternate technology in the next crisis.  Thanks!
