Hey guys. A few members here are unable to create threads, post/modify replies, and send PMs due to some sort of glitch, and I was wondering how many other members are having this problem? Does your browser crash or the forum log you out, or do something else when you try to submit a post?
According to Proboards Support, some other Proboard forums' members are having similar problems. It seems to be connected to the California More Smilies code (which this forum also uses), but the cause of it seems to differ from using IE8, to certain Windows updates, to completely random times with various browsers, to who knows what else. (Links to some of those Support threads: link 1, link 2)
SO! If you're also having this kind of problem, please QuickReply (or email me at IamJade(at)Musogato.com and I'll post your message for you), with the following info!
1) What browser (and version!) are you using? 2) What exactly is going wrong? The more details, the better. 3) For how long has this been happening? Weeks? Months? 4) Is the time on your computer correct, and does that time match the forum's time when you're logged in?
There is an alternate smiley code that we can use, but first I want to get a gauge of how many people are having this problem, and then remove the current smiley code and see how many of those people no longer have the posting problem. (The smilies will still be usable, you'll just have to input the image code yourself. They're all hosted here.)
Yes...I'm still having trouble (I couldn't even reply to your PM).
So...to answer your questions...
1) Internet Explorer...not sure the version...but it's got tabs. 2) I click on 'reply', 'quote', 'new thread, 'new poll'...ANYTHING that takes me to the page with all the smiles on it...and it crashes. The tab restores itself to the page I was on before I clicked on whatever it was I clicked on 3) I'm not really sure...I'm not doing a whole lot of posting around here at the moment...a few months at least... 4) Yes...yes it is.
