    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

      2. Also, this only seems to happen in groups with secondary postings

      At least on my end.

      3. It tells me: Error: This looks like a duplicate post. You have already

      said that!

      But it isn’t a duplicate reply. I have not already “said that”.

      7. Well, this worked for me yesterday, but not today.

      So, now I am curious what the hell is the reason behind it.
      I can’t cut and paste anything in to the body of the reply at all.

        That’s so weird!! I don’t understand it at all. That’s why we have a programmer working on it.

        Again, my apologies. We are changing a setting. Hopefully, that will work

          11. Glad you are back, sorry you can't paste. Do you use Apple?

          There are still problems for members who had iPads, iPhones. Have you looked at the thread on the updates? It’s on the ‘Home’ page. Wish I could help but that is not in my wheel house. Maybe ask Deadpool?

            22. Delete your JPR cookie and see if that fixes it for you.

            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.
            Now I’m thinking it must be a problem with the type of forum we use.

      39. Having Trouble Posting In A Thread With A Previous Post

      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.

        41. I'm having a problem commenting on a comment/replying to a comment

        The screen/thread isn’t holding long enough to type in the title line let alone the comment text.

        Congratulations for fixing this problem….as I can now copy and paste portions of texts on the internet and/or content that I have crafted on word.

        Haven’t a clue what it means for the instructions vis a vis clearing Java Script?! likewise Lynux??

        I’m also noticing that the mechanisms to format text (Bold/Italic/Indent – etc., etc.) are missing……

        Thanks for fixing the first problem – would love to but cannot reply to comments though I can reply to the source thread…
