I am not sure what the issue is, your end, my end, or what. I access the website/forum from my latop running Windows XP Pro or from my Samsung Tablet, which both use different operating systems. I have on occassion seen the "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again." error, but clicking on the submit button a second time the post goes through. I have never lost a post on the forum either. At times if I am writing a long post and I take my time my login will time out. The forum for the most part works as designed.
As for the the shout box I have never had double post although I have seen them on occassion from others. The only issue I have from my end with the shout box is sometimes there is a delay in my post appearing.
Is your issues with the forum posts or the shout box posts??? Or both???
Well Steve, you made a reply that you didn't have many issues using the forum. I took that to mean the problem was at my end. Either with my home computer or my ISP. So I tried it at my son's house on his Apple and at my Mom's . The results were the same.
The double and triple posts on the shout box is something new as is the loss of entire posts . Ok,,,third try.
I'm getting more used to the site now. The only problem that I have had is that my first attempt at "submit" each time I post gives me a failure notice. I hit "submit" again and it always posts immediately. I just figured that was some built in safety measure to stop spam or to see if I really wanted to post the message and I was awake. I really like the ability to see the active topics.
