Is anyone having the same problems I'm having?
When I go to answer a thread, especially if I use the quote function, after about 10 lines the window refuses to follow the typing down the reply window like it has in the past. Instead I get a continuous bouncing that as I type jumps up and down with each key stroke. The reply window will only display those 1st 10 lines, regardless of how long the entry is. It is very frustrating trying to answer someone's question(s) and not be able to read what is being typed.
The 2nd issue is that now when I click on the post button, while answering a question, it automatically kicks down to show my just completed entry on the thread. Previously, when posting a reply, the subject thread would appear showing the 1st page of that subject. Previously, If I had posted and answer under the Greetings Subject the screen would return to the face page of the Greetings Subject showing me the new postings. Now I just see what I had just posted.
Are both of these "problems" updates to the forum made by the moderators? I can see the sense to viewing your most recent posting instead of going back to the index page but the Preview button allows for the same thing so I think the way it is operating now is redundant, unneeded, and aggrivating. The bouncing screen is just plain aggrivating.
Another thought, is the problems I'm having a result of some change I may have mistakeningly made in my view options?
Mine had did it once before a year or so before, then straightened out then started again recently. I checked, and found out I was usinf e-8, and I had not downloaded it from the old, but having vista, and set up for automatic updating for vista and microsoft word, it must have automatically updated e to 8 also.
Because I used to be forum administrator, and quite active in some forums in the past, and got disgusted with working for quite some time to type out a rather long, and sometimes clever message to post, only to lose it by one little mis-hit on I do not know which key, that I accidentally hit, and/or for I do not know what reason, I came up with a method to avoid this.
If I am anticipating composing a lengthy post, and/or one I do not want to lose just upon completing, but before posting, I will first type it out in "WORD PAD", then copy and past into the post.
I have composed this present message, and because of the problems presently being discussed, I will copy it, and just past under the quote, and then post .
