Can't Post
« on: December 31, 2013, 11:37:03 am »
When I try to post a reply, I get the following error message in a pink background:

"The following error or errors occurred while posting this message: Your session timed out while posting. Please try to re-submit your message."

I was still logged in so I tried reposting, closing the website and reopening it and logging out. None of these worked. When I tried to log out, I got a "logout failed" message.

This is frustrating, as I have lots of extremely intelligent and insightful comments to make.

It took me several tries to post this, but it finally went through.

Try hitting the preview first; then, come back and hit post.  It has been doing that to me for a while now.  Once I actually post, the rest goes OK from then on.

Thanks, Coach. I did try that the other day and it didn't work, but sometimes I have no problem.

There - it worked this time. The post above didn't go through, then it did after I previewed it. Thanks again, Coach, and Happy New Year.

Happy New Year to you too.  Now to go work on my taxes and figure out how much "spreading the wealth" I have to do.   :o

I had the same problem but I found if I clicked on "preview" and "spell check" and then hit "post", it would go through .

there's always the "clear cookies" method ... but I'm with BNR and go the "preview" method when it's acting up

Pretty sure this has something to do with being logged in on multiple devices. I just do the preview thing.

Not with me.  I only have a printer connected to my computer.  Can't see that being a factor.

Why wasnt this an issue 3 months ago? Or last year?

agree.  If I'm just on the chrombook i'm fine.  but when I come here at work, i have to preview before post, then when I get home and back on chrombook I have to preview post again.


May also have something to do with some changes to the site coming.
