I'm trying to post an update to one of my old and ongoing topics.

 

http://thehotpepper....ile-alchemists/

 

It is properly auto-saving my content but when I push a post or preview button, it kicks straight out to the main forum index.

 

What's up with this? The last post to the topic was made October 28. I don't see any indication the topic is locked.

 

Thanks,

DW

This is crazy. DownRiver can post to my topic but I can't. I can post to any other topic with no problem.

This is what appears above my reply box.

This post will need approval from a moderator before this post is shown.

Something similar was happening to me and I discovered I'd inadvertently selected a "code" option in the formatting options. As soon as I unselected it, all was well.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.        Robert Heinlein

I am having the same problem, and it's starting to tick me off.

It's an intermittent thing, which is the drizzlin' poops. I will be rollin'

along just fine, then all of a sudden, it starts doing what you are

describing. Sometimes if I open another window, I can post in it,

or if I select more reply options.

 

But, other times, nothing works.

 

I really wish someone would look into this. I contacted support

a week or two ago and haven't heard squat. I love my Extreme

membership. but it's not worth the $ if I can't post reliably.

That's odd. Sounds like a browser javascript error. You could try clearing your cookies and cache.

After I switched the editor option to "Paste as plain text by default", I was allowed to post to that particular thread. Otherwise, no matter what I did, any attempt to preview or post from the basic or advanced editor immediately kicked me out to the main forum index. Cache and cookies,  type of browser or computer used had nothing to do with it.

Thanks for the tip. That's great for anyone having this issue while we look into it.
 

And that setting should not affect the final post, only how it is pasted. I always paste as plain text anyway by right clicking. Thanks!

Had this problem last time I made an image update to my glog. It happened on updates as well. I trimmed the post down to just text and it went through, and I added images in one at a time; the only thing I could come up with is that I was hitting a 3- or 4-image limit (linked from my website, not uploaded as attachments). Not sure if that was actually the issue, but it seemed that way to me.

 

For others having this problem: If you think wonky formatting might be a problem, the upper left gray switch-looking button in the editor ('BBCode Mode') will show you a plain-text version of your post, which should make it clear if something you pasted in caused the editor to wig out.

 

Also, I'm not sure how widely adopted it is, but on the computers I use, ctrl+shift+v pastes as plain text.

Yes, if you are pasting anything sometimes it can attach code that will prevent you from posting successfully. You can try pasting as plain text (right click, or in your setting for default) and you can try what IF posted above, toggle the code mode. Take a look at the code. Remove anything erroneous and post.

Also on a side note I have seen people using proxies have this issue. Depends on how the proxy is masking the IP, it may not let you interact with the site due to conflicts.

As an alternate you can try this:

 

Don't reply from the bottom of your topic, scroll to the topic and click "Reply to this topic". It loads a little differently and may solve your issue.

Until just now I wasn't having any posting issues beyond an occasional unclicked on strike or

 

  1. list mode

or a superscript...

 

But I tried to quote a CaneDog post regarding this very issue and found myself on the homepage, not 20 minutes ago!

There was a change that may have cleared it up. PaulG has reported no errors since.
