OK, so it might just be me (waits for chorus of "yes, probably"...) but I've posted 2 replies in a thread (this one) since last night (Monday) and they haven't appeared in the thread.

Do I need to learn how to use forum s/w before I start trying to sort out people's networking and driver problems Frown or is something not functioning as it should ? 

Now I've embarrassed myself enough over what's probably a simple solution, I'll go look for the sticky that says this function isn't working...

Evidently it did work...and I'm sure I've used the quick reply before - possibly a problem with one particular thread (indexing?)

I'll try to remember what I wrote and re-post in the thread using the full composer window & see if that works

Never had a problem with the quick reply box - using it right now.

yeah, works fine here (as above) but definitely 2 of my replies to the quoted thread are not there; I'll re-gather my thoughts & test with the full composer window in that thread

ok, so I've just successfully posted a reply to the original thread using the full "compose " option - haven't a clue why quick reply wouldn't play there...

consider this one closed then !

Something I did by accident a couple of times when I was new here was to enter text into the Quick Reply box then click "Compose Reply" instead of "Post Reply". Maybe you did the same thing without realising it.

hi behodar

I guess it could have been something like that.

Whatever, I've put it down to a discrete component error - that component being the one sitting betwen the keyboard and the chair...Embarassed

But thanks for bumping a post i had hoped would just quietly disappear Smile

remember not to use html or tags in the quick reply box - that will come up with an error that is sometimes easy to miss...

The other thing that I ofetn do is hit the button, and because the page load times are so high close the tab before its finshed loading, and in fact the post didnt happen. If you let it load there is a tiny hard to read thing at the top about not accepting it because of some various reason ("bad word" normally, qoute error sometimes) which means you have to go back and fix it and try again.

High page load times? It must be your connection: once the form is sent to the server the transaction is done, even if you close your browser. The only explanation is you closing your browser before the form is completely uploaded - in this case it's all on your network...
