Editing Forum Posts Problem
« on: August 03, 2009, 09:09:23 PM »
Hi Klaus, every time I try to edit a post the screen goes a little bonkers.

It's been happening for a few days now.

Drugs?
Can I have some, too?
My screen is boring when I edit stuff. ;)

Seriously, everything's fine over here.
What's exactly happening?
Anyone else experiencing problems like TJ?

I did edit one post of mine yesterday - no problems at all.

Edit: still no problem.  :)

It's happened many times when you in and and change a long post the screen goes up and down and you can't see what you are highlighting.

Drugs?

I once had a smoke of a woodbine cig whilst drinking whiskey. Does that count?

This problem still occurs. It takes five times as long to edit a complex post. i.e. place bold on the TV and Gaye interview posts.

Which problem still occurs - the smoking or the drinking?

We need more details.
This looks like a problem on your side.

Nah! It' never happened before.

You go into a long complex post (like some of mine  ;)) try and edit parts and the screen goes up and down.

Try it and see.

Screen going up and down can't be the forum or the website.
That's not how it works, technically.
It's a problem on the client side, which is your PC.

That's strange as I've not had this problem anywhere else other than editing recent long and complicated posts on this forum.

No one else here seems to have the problem either.
Or maybe it's because you are an extreme-poster.
Computers...

I sent you a mail offering my remote support.
Have you received the message?

Yes thank you Klaus.  :D

I'm just really focused on winning some new clients at the moment. I've popped in here to see what's happening about EARTHBOUND next week.

I'll have a chat with you about this when I see you then we can sort it out when I get back. I'm just not sure taht other posters use the forum in the same way I do with regards to complexity of posts.

Maybe it's just a security feature of the forum...  ;)
