Am trying to post on this thread - have posted on it before. But pressing post just takes me to the topics page. What is going on? Have tried in IE and Firefox confused

How odd, Feenie.

I've just managed to post on that thread <helpful>

Is it happening just on that thread? Or can't you post on any threads at all?

Feenie Thu 25-Nov-10 20:54:35

I can see your test post, Helen, but it still sends me to topics when I try sad

Feenie Thu 25-Nov-10 20:57:00

No, can post on this and others. It's just that one, and I really want to post on it! Thanks for the prompt attention though smile

Testing (from a second rate Japanese restaurant)

Feenie Thu 25-Nov-10 21:19:58

It's now let me do a different post, but not the one I want to make hmm

It's not letting me post anything longer than one line

mylifewithstrangers Thu 25-Nov-10 21:41:56

Do you have any odd characters in your post, like the pound sign for example hmm

Feenie Thu 25-Nov-10 21:43:43

I was trying to cut and paste from an government document (the Assessment and Reporting Arrangements 2011) but it wouldn't let me! Worked when I retyped - very sinister grin

ive been having problems too when i try to c&p links.

5inthebed Thu 25-Nov-10 21:46:05

Oh actually, I was trying to link to something. maybe that is the problem?

mylifewithstrangers Thu 25-Nov-10 21:46:39

It wouldn't let me post earlier until I removed the pund sign and substituted 'quid' !! Because <pound sign> is such a subversive sign hmm

I just tried to post this with an actual pound sign and it still won't let me.

I had that too earlier. I'd written a big long post and it did the same thing. I'd copied it (dodgy internet connection so I usually do that so I don't lose it) and then when I tried it again it still wouldn't work. But eventually let me post it in small sections.

mumto2andnomore Thu 25-Nov-10 21:49:47

Ive had that problem too, didnt know it was the pound sign !

DebiTheScot Thu 25-Nov-10 21:50:39

ah I had pound signs too.

smokinaces Thu 25-Nov-10 22:02:31

aaah, I just wrote a long post and lost it - and it had a pound sign in it!

Gutted as really cant be asked to retype it all now!

mylifewithstrangers Thu 25-Nov-10 22:03:44

smokin, if you'd just hit the <back> button it would have gone back to the page where you typed it all!!!

nameymcnamechange Thu 25-Nov-10 22:07:00

Helen: this is what was happening to me earlier.

Strangers: which back button do you mean blush? [ignorant emoticon].

smokinaces Thu 25-Nov-10 22:07:25

I did, but sadly it had deleted everything I had typed and was just a blank box sad

Joolyjoolyjoo Thu 25-Nov-10 22:12:27

Ah! this has just happened to me, and yes, there were pound signs in my post <eureka>

mylifewithstrangers Thu 25-Nov-10 22:14:13

LOL namey, THE back button, you know, the one which you use to return to a previous page.

There should be an icon top left of your browser, or press Alt+Left Arrow, or right-click and choose back etc etc etc grin

nameymcnamechange Thu 25-Nov-10 22:19:09

Ah right now, to be sure, on my browser, not my keyboard! I'm with ya.

I'm having same problem on antenatal clubs, won't let me do long posts. Also bringing me back to topic page randomly. Can also not access antenatal clubs through topics page. I am having to go through the search request.

Back button deletes my posts, both at home and at work
