Argh!
« on: Wednesday, 14 September 2022, 02:08 pm »
Hi Dave - there is a most frustrating issue!
I post an article and it tells me "a problem has occured" so I try again and it tells me I have already posted it! - I look for it and nothing .... argh!

What is it you're posting Stan?  Just text or pic's as well?  Which of the topic boards are you posting in?  I'll see if I can find anything till Barmy gets here . . .

Happens to me as well, more so when you try to attach photos. That's on my phone, haven't tried the laptop.

I find it happens if the pics are too big. Sometimes it just fails to post rather than telling you it's failed.

I've had this happen a few times over the years. Usually when posting a photo file that is too big.
If I'm writing a long post I copy it before hitting the post button just in case the message appears. It won't have posted it anywhere. Its then a simple matter of starting a new post and pasting your copied text into it and trying again :onya:

As Steve said  :)
The older I get the better I was
The problem with retirement is that you cant take a day off

Hi Dave - as others have said - I just start a new post and it seems to work - the photo size has always been an issue so ensure it is reduced.
No screen shot as its just an error message as previously indicated. Learn to live with it now!
I need to go somewhere I've not been but won't know until I get there!

On the positive side when I upgrade the forum to the new version of the software there is a 'save draft' feature to prevent having to retype big posts - just be able to click on save draft periodically and it's safe :)
