Forum is failing me

Hello Administrators,

I have been dropped from posting repeatedly recently. I don't know why.... but its pretty frustrating to put the effort into typing ... then hitting the "Submit" button. Then nothing happens ... message disappears until I get a message that states that the "security something is invald" or some such rubbish.

How do I fix this?

Tom

Tom, trying to help you is beyond my expertise because I can't duplicate your problem on my end. The mention of "security" sounds like you're getting a warning from your anti-virus.

One of the forum admins will be looking into this, standby and be patient.

I wonder if your login access duration has expired before your clicking submit. The site timeout is quite short.

I have never been logged off due to timeout, and I have some of my posts have taken a good long time to compose. I doubt that is the problem in this case.

I've had a similar problem . I log on , type a response / post , hit submit , screen says I can't post cause I am not logged in , log in again (2nd time) , try to post again but the post has magically disappeared and all I have is a blank screen.

Copy the post before logging in a second time. Then you save what you have written and can paste it into the 2nd attempt to respond. I haven't gotten the message but have seen the "system" freeze up in occasion.

Thank You ; Now if I only knew what is or how to "copy and paste"
Give me 30 or 40 days and I maybe can figure it out or maybe not.

Tom, I am only as smart as the computer I am working on, so don't know a solution. I do believe though it is something to do with your computer and setup and how it is working with the forum software, as I have been logged on continuously for months at a time, and have not had problems.

My standard solution to problems is to first just shut down my browser and restart, and if that does not work reboot my computer. The next solution is to clear cache and cookies on my browser, run Ad-Aware and Spbot, then reboot. After this, my computer has always run lickety split.

Good luck with a fix, I am sure the site admins will have a good clue what the issue might be.

You might be better of writing your lengthy message in Notepad, then copy and paste that into reply window.

IF you use IE, under "options," you can add the EscapeForum as a trusted site. Don't know if that will cure the problem, but might be worth a try.
