For about the last week and a half or so, I've had trouble posting.

No matter which captcha I put in, it says it's wrong. Sometimes I have to completely log out or leave the page and come back in to make it work.

So far I've tried clearing cookies and cache, and I'm currently using the latest version of Firefox 22.0.

Anyway, it's been taking forever to get a post to save properly.

Thanks.

Hi mate

Have you tried a different browser?

At what point during making a post are you asked for a captcha?

I'm never asked for one to be input...... Odd

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

Hi Ferret,

Actually no, I haven't tried a different browser yet.

Guess maybe I should, but Firefox has never been a problem until just recently.

And the point at which it asks for the captcha, is when trying to submit a post to verify we're human. It has five different pictures, and tells you which one to use.

I thought all accounts had to do that.....hmm, interesting?

@Feathers :  After a certain number of posts, you no longer have to verify that you're human. I don't remember how many that is, but seeing as you've got 78 posts right now and still have to do that, I'd guess that it might be 100. I thought it was less than that, but really can't remember and maybe it's changed. Perhaps Pierre will weigh in.

@KindaScratchy  - Ah ok, that makes perfect sense why some members still have the captchas and others don't. Thank you smile

 

Still don't know why it's hit and miss when trying to submit, but it worked fine when I replied to Ferret earlier. It figures it would after I called it a problem.....lol

Maybe some of the chat and banner codes that Pierre had to fix, were somehow conflicting with posts too. dunno

I've had trouble too in the last little while.  Seems I have to leave it, and try later.

 

Although this morning, I must have hit an oddball key or hot keys when typing, then all of a sudden my post zipped away off in space before I was finished,  but the funny thing is, it said post was saved.  Where to, I have no idea.....hmmm

@Helvetika -

If it's not just me, then it might very well be on this end.

The last couple of posts I've made have been a little better though, so maybe part of it worked itself out. crossedfingers

For your missing post:

There's two links in the lower right hand corner in your profile area to find all your posts and topics. Maybe it'll show where it saved to?

Sorry guys. I'll forward this link to the SimplePress developers. :-)

Feathers, after 99 posts you'll be upgraded automatically. There is light at the end of the tunnel. smile

I'm using the latest Firefox for Mac and have no troubles.
Thanks for the updates.

I've had problems in the past with firefox as well, and the latest version of IE also seems to have some issues.  I guess this is all the result of progress???lumpy-2134

There is no failure, only results.

Just noticed that you exceeded the 99 post mark..... Congratulations Feathers :-)

Still working on resolving the issues. What makes it easier is if we get a lot more details from more users with the same problem. It's very hard to solve an issue if we can't replicate the problem.

Is anyone else having trouble viewing the forum on a phone or tablet? I have for the past few days. I get a message saying that the template can't be found or something like that. It works fine on my computer.

Oops, sorry. It's working now. I guess I posted prematurely without checking it again.

Thanks for fixing it, Pierre!

That's a relief. I get a lot of pm's when something is not working and it can cost me some valuable sleep. pie_in_the_face-2223
