Illini fan needs help posting on this site

Illini fan needs help posting on this site 


I just received a message from one of our posters.  He has a new computer and is having problems posting.  If anyone knows what might be the problem, please share it here.  Thanks.  I have enclosed his message below:

"When I try to post with my new computer, the text of the post is entered,  the post is credited to me but my comments are missing.  I now hit the preview button, and the comments I enter vanish.  Any idea what the problem may be?  I can stll post on my older computer, but it is agonizingly slow."

I had, and still have, the same problem.  It happens when I open the site on the new Internet Explorer.  So, I switched to Google Chrome and I have no trouble.  Give that a try to see if it works.

I had that problem too, and fixed it with the same approach Nova used.

I had the opposite problem.  Microsoft told me to upgrade to the newest IE, so I did and could not post afterward.  Then I switced to Chrome and it was ok.

When I upgraded to Internet Explorer 9,  I encountered the same problem.  I downloaded Mozilla Fire Fox and use it when I access the forum  it works fine.

I haven't used IE since 2000 and never plan to due to the programming being amateur at best.

There is a topic on the Help/Reference Forum that discusses this issue.  Another solution if you use IE is to run it in Compatability Mode.  I know this has worked for me.

Thanks for all the help on this and to Jack for posting.  I just added Scout to the compatibility view and am attempting to post.  How about that, when I hit the preview button, my post is still there.

Thanks to all and GO ILLINI! biggrin
