View Full Version : Problem posting reply
03-05-2005, 1:33 PM
I am trying to post a reply to a thread I posted to yesterday. The reply contains a lot of information with names and dates, so I created a plain text file first and copied and pasted it into the reply box. What is in the reply box is fine, but when I press Preview Post, what appears is gibberish, with segments repeated and mixed up together. Editing it simply makes it worse. There is of course no formatting in a plain .txt file so I don't know what could be causing this problem.

The forum software has a problem which strikes from time to time.
It appears to dislike long posts and also posts which have been heavily edited even if posted from a plain text file.
Most of us get around it by splitting a large post up into a number of short postings.
Many bugs have been fixed between the version of the software used here ... 3.0.3 ... and the latest free update to it ... 3.0.7

"I don't know what could be causing this problem"
Using 'Preview', perhaps?
