Anybody else having problems?

I can reply to a post, preview, and edit, but for some reason the SUBMIT button isn't working for me.

A slightly different problem for me.

I can post, but cannot send ROPs. When I hit Submit nothing happens. The Cancel button works though, to remove the ROP window.

I've reported it to Lee, and I now see that another Mod cannot send ROPs as well.

Thursday fix? Happy

you have to choose the type of discussion

In reply to: Interesting

Otherwise you sit there wondering why it didn't go. If using a low resolution to get bigger characters, the message about needing to choose the type of post isn't seen, since it's above the screen.

Not sure if my reply will post yet

but I'll give it a shot. The problem, James, is with the REPLY window and the SUBMIT REPLY button for me. You only get the option of type of discussion for new topic posts, not replies. I've just updated my Java just in case that's where the problem lies since John Wilkenson in the Lounge indicates that it might be a Java script issue.

Evidently, it IS a Java issue

because after updating that on John's suggestion in the Lounge, it is working again for me. Thanks, John......

I didn't have to do anything for ROPing to work. It was suggested that a Shift+Refresh would fix it, but wasn't necessary for me.

I frequently have the advertising banner at the top of the screen covering the 'type of post' options when I am starting a thread.

I've not seen that mentioned before

Strange one grim.

Next time it happens, can you take a screen print, upload that to some image hosting site and let us have a link please?

Any adverts shouldn't cover those options when someone is posting, and that would seem to be a bug.
