Anyone else having posting issues?
« on: July 16, 2017, 05:20:36 PM »
Just about every time I logon here I lose a post.

I type in my response, question, etc. and hit the Post button and I get an error message telling my it can't find the forum.  When I hit the back button it goes back to an EMPTY text/message box and I either have to retype my stuff or just hit the delete button and move on (out of frustration).

Only once, when I hit the back button, has it returned me to the thread to find my text intact in the box still.  Every other time the box is empty.

Every now and then I remember to copy my text first, before I hit the post button, so I can paste it into the empty text box and hit the post button again.  The second time it always works correctly.

This started about 3 days ago, I think.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Clear your cache and history. No other reports of difficulty AFAIK.

Just tried that.  It kicked me off the forum and I had to log back in again.

We'll see how things work now.

Well, it eventually started doing it on another forum, too.

May be something about my computer and Microsofts updates/programs.  Similar stuff has happened before.

I switched over to Chrome a couple days ago and not single issue so far.

In a week or so, Microsoft will do some kind of update and my computer will work "normally" again.

I went with the Chrome browser too.  Microsoft has not been good for me.

Yesterday I got a pop up from Microsoft telling me my "version" of Windows 10 needed to be updated.  Took a couple hours for it to work it's way through the software and my laptop.  I've used the Microsoft browser all day without a single instance of losing my reply/post.

Maybe it was just a software (Microsoft) issue.
