    Problems with posting

    Is it just me or has others had problems posting today.

    I had one post that was actually descent length, that when I hit submit, I got a page telling me that the post wasn't long enough and that I need to add 5 characters. I tried resubmitting and that time it worked.

    On another post, I quoted someone and then wrote below the quote. When I submitted it, it only posted the quote and deleted my text (and no, I didn't have anything offensive in my post that it may have been deleted, all I said was that I was near an SDSU fan that was obnoxious).

    Any thoughts?

    Re: Problems with posting

    I will take a look at it, anybody else having similar problems?


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Problems with posting

    When ever I post, I will properly space out paragraphs and indent, but when I post it, it shows up without all of the spacing.Then when I go back and try to edit it, it will not let me.Also I can not change the text to bold, italics, or underline.

    I had a problem with that a while ago and one of the moderators told me how to fix it on my settings. I wish i remembered

    I do notice that sometimes it will truncate spacing, I think. If I put two spaces between a period and the beginning of the next sentence (the traditional standard), it at least appears to strip one out.

    Have you checked your Message Editor Interface setting in your user CP?

    Is it set on Enhanced Interface?

    If it helps, it has been a web standard for several years to just allow a single space after periods, though I could not tell you why. Also, it is becoming the standard in print to use just a single space.

    Re: Problems with posting

    The spacing truncation is setup on purpose but the other problems I'll look into. Puzzling, sorry for that.

    Re: Problems with posting

    Looks like I got the spacing thing done

    now what is with the bold, italics, and underline?

    Re: Problems with posting

    When I go to edit, it will not let me save the changes

    that I make.
