    To all having posting problems

    Theprogrammer believes the problems are all related to the editor working with JavaScript. Since only a few people are having the problem, it’s almost impossible to reproduce to try to fix.

    @majorhogwash came up with a solution. Hopefully, this will work for everyone. Please try it if you’re having a problem posting

    I downloaded the latest version of Java and cleared the cache, works now.
    I logged out and then back in, because that was the easiest thing to do, but that didn’t fix it.
    But, thinking about it maybe being a JavaScript problem, I downloaded their latest version of Java.
    That was pretty easy to do, as well, and it didn’t require me to fudge with any settings I had on my computer.
    I think some of the problem for me was caused by using an older version of Java.
    I hadn’t upgraded to their latest, greatest version in quite some time.

    However, that still didn’t fix the problem, so I cleared out the cache of images — but, not my cookies — the smallest clearing of the cache possible, and that fixed the problem.
    Clearing the cache is fairly easy and can be done in steps, like the way I did it.
    I didn’t wipe out my cookies, or any of the permanent links to feeds, or anything like that in my history, so the fix was painless.


    Please give it try. Worst that would happen is nothing

    Thank you Major Hogwash

            I deleted my old JPR cookie, but it didn’t work for me.

            Since I have the newest version of Java, that should eliminate it as a problem for me.

      Hi Mary,

      When I try to reply within a thread that I have already posted to the system will not accept the new post.

      I have tried the cache clearing process and that has had no effect.

      FWIW I use Linux which is continuously updated with new patches of Java.

      Hopefully the problem can be found.

          59. I only know Chromium and Firefox

          Chromium: Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Content Settings->Cookies->See all Cookies and site data

          Or: type: “chrome://settings/siteData” in the address bar.

          Notice how they hide it. I mainly keep the JPR stuff and a few accounts I use.

          Then click on all the little trash cans you don’t recognize or want using your machine to store things. (Isn’t it amazing how it piles up?)

          Firefox: Preferences->Privacy&Security->ManageData

          Then select & remove what you want gone.

          At the moment I am using chromium, but I am thinking about going back to Firefox or getting the de-Googled version of Chromium they are working on.

          I was working, and then not working, and then after the above I was working again. Still working …

          It appears to be a data management problem, things are not getting cleaned up like they should.

          61. For context:

          I’ve had issues off and on for a couple weeks with posting along the lines mentioned here with Subject lines, things lost, and not getting to post in the text box. The last couple days I’ve been getting the text box problem and it wasn’t going away so I started playing with it and found what Hogwash mentioned works for me. Since I commonly do things like run with Javascript off, clean my site data every so often, and  otherwise am anal about “privacy” I may have already been having a better experience than some with this problem.

          It ain't the things you don't know that hurts you, it's the things you know that ain't so.
