I've found a bug I'm getting dealt with:

In Firefox, unless I click "Remember Me," my log-in doesn't stick. For IE, I have to log in twice (the first time I get an "Invalid URL" message). I've complained about both these bugs and hopefully they'll get resolved.

Yeah - We are back ! Missed everyone. Thank You Nancy for all your hard work to get the board up running again.:yay::)

I tried to access the form via Goggle but could not get in. I had to use Firefox. Maybe because I first joined via Firefox ?

I'm not having any problems on Google Chrome. At least not so far... knock wood.

Edited to add: That's Google Chrome on my laptop, not my phone.

I get the invalid URL message when I log in on my phone and can't log in, using the Chrome app. I'm also having trouble scrolling when on IE (on a computer), it keeps jumping to the top.

I was having problems getting in this afternoon via Firefox (it kept bringing up EOC Biogs.) . Still not able to get in via Goggle Chrome. I guess that is part of the bugs to work out. Thank You again Soda and Dreamer and everyone else who worked to bring the message board back.

Well, I just tried getting in via Goggle and it worked.

That's kinda strange because I use Chrome at home and at work and it comes up for me.

So right now, it appears the Google Chrome problems have sorted themselves out?

I'm on Chrome and Firefox and have no problems getting in. Safari (which is Mac only browser) works fine and Microsoft Edge and IE (PC only browser) works fine also.

Okay - I've noticed a 'bug' or, at least, I think it is.

When I try to post a photo with the 'Insert Image' icon using the URL from one of the EOC sites, it is inserted as a thumbnail attachment to the post. This may be the way it designed to work now, but it's not the way it used to work. In the past, if I went to any EOC site Photo Gallery and clicked on the thumbnail to enlarge the photo, and then copied and pasted the URL using the 'Insert Image' icon, it would insert the enlarged photo directly into the post.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is it a setting that needs to be changed or is this the way it is supposed to work?

If this is the way it works now, then how do we post the enlarged images? The only workaround I know of is to paste the URL directly into the post and then manually type the image tags before and after the URL with no spaces. Example: pasted URL

Does it do that with all photos, or just large ones?

I think I found the problem. There was a confusing option to add an image from a URL and "store locally" which came checked by default - and that was turning your image into an attachment. That's why it was getting converted into a thumbnail. I've disabled that menu choice entirely. It should be easy to use now!

Incidentally, why are my posts deleted immidiately when I try to edit them?

chaim - The only thing I can think of that would cause your post to be deleted is if the "Delete this post in the following manner' box was checked when you were editing your post. I'll test that and see what happens.

ETA: Well, I tested it and apparently that's not the problem because my post didn't delete with the box checked so I'm not sure what the problem is.

I don't know chaim - I've been wondering why I've seen so many posts deleted by you, and that explains it. When did this start happening?

I think it started happening immediately when this forum was up again.

Chaim, I bet it is a cache problem with your browser. When the forum came back online, certain things might have gotten switched over (numbers, name resolution, etc) and your browser didn't make the switch and there might be a corrupt cache file in there.

Please share which operating system (Windows, Mac OS) and browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Edge, Internet Explorer, etc) you are posting on and I can give you instructions on resetting your browser and clearing the temporary files (cache, cookies, history, etc). It's easiest on Chrome but I can help you with any of them if I know what you are running. And speaking of browsers, you might try a different one. I recommend Chrome or Firefox over Edge/IE. They support more of the newer web technologies and generally have less compatibility issues. Chrome is my favorite but Firefox is good as well. Both are better than the ones that come built in with a Windows computer. Pick one you aren't currently using.

It could also be a DNS server issue. If you are on Windows there is a fairly simple way to clear the DNS cache using the command prompt with a couple commands.

I really don't think it's a server-side issue - but you never know. Usually if it's happening, it's going to happen to everyone and not just single accounts. But Soda knows better about that. I'm not a web developer, I'm just a network geek. :D

I use my little Samsung with an android system and my browser is indeed Chrome. Perhaps I'll try to edit a post with my wife's Mac and see what happens.

That sounds like a good idea, chaim. Let us know the outcome.

If it works on the Mac, there is a way to reset Chrome on the Samsung/Android.

If it doesn't work on the Mac, that's a good indication that it's a server issue.

Creating this post on a Mac to see if I can edit it....

EDIT:

It worked.

I figured as much.

Here's a good article on how to reset Chrome on an Android device.

https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/2392709?co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&hl=en

When you select a time range - be sure to select "all time" otherwise it won't work.

If it still doesn't work Chrome may need to be uninstalled and then reinstalled from the Google Play Store.

Just want to let everyone know that we are aware of the posting issues on the board. Working on it, but still haven't gotten to the bottom of it yet. Will update this when we have more information.

Hopefully, the board is working better for everyone now. It seems to have been caused by a memory issue in one of the files that had to be corrected.

I hope that wasn't because of my repeated posts, If it was then I am terribly sorry. But I'm so glad you got it all worked out. :grin:

Thanks everyone for your kind posts. We aren't sure about the reason for the problem. But, now that we have a heads up, we will keep an eye out. If it happens again, we should be able to isolate the cause. Wanna keep The Border going as long as Eagles fans are visiting.
