Items are still in queue...

by tcavadias Staff In reply to if you could,

The items that still need fixing, are in the queue (good thing), however there are other more pressing issues taken up the resources at the moment (I know - bad thing)

Thanks Purple :-)

by tcavadias Staff In reply to Hi Tammy

What OS/Browser? Is it to all Q/A's? Only certain ones (i.e. newer ones)? Doesn't matter if you use reply or clarify?

That is weird about the PM thing (I'll need to double check on that to see if there is already a fix in the process)

more info

by PurpleSkys In reply to I just want to be able to ...

browsers are both IE 9, one is one xp pro and the other is win7 pro...I haven't tried to respond in clarify, i'll try to remember to do that next time....I really don't know if it's certain ones or newer ones, I would stab a guess at newer ones as I don't normally post a response to an older question.

I have noticed that I can PM folks that I had "added" before the new format, but not different folks since the change-over....sigh...

That helps a lot...

by tcavadias Staff In reply to more info

.. any chance of seeing if a different browser works, next time the issue presents itself? FF/Chrome? I have a sneaky feeling it's IE9.

POh and I know this is asking for a lot - but possibly a screenshot? You can email it to Tammy DOT Cavadias AT CBS.com

Not just IE9, Tammy

by NickNielsen In reply to That helps a lot...

I've had the same problem with FF, but with a twist.

I select Reply, get the title and text boxes, do my thing, then click Submit Reply. Focus changes to the button, but nothing apparently happens. However, if I do a page reload (not just a refresh), the post is there. This is, I think, how I got the last several double-posts I've made; I click, nothing happens, I click again, and this time the page refreshes.

This happens to me on any one of four different computers. All are running XP and using FF 3.6.17 with the same add-ons.

Oh sure.. be the oddball...

by tcavadias Staff In reply to Not just IE9, Tammy

;-) So basically Nick.. the post "posted" - it just doesn't appear until later/after refresh?

Is it every single time? only some times? in both discussions/QA? Replies to posts? Starting a new discussion/QA? Have you tried another OS? Java script enabled?

Yep, that's about it

by NickNielsen In reply to Oh sure.. be the oddball. ...

It's like the local script didn't get the word back from the server to update the page.

It only happens sometimes, primarily in replies to posts in both Discussions and Q&A. A higher percentage in Q&A, but I think that's more related to me not posting there very often, so they stand out more. I don't remember it happening if I start a discussion. It doesn't appear to be related to which browser tab the page is in, nor does it appear to be related to how many tabs are open.

I tend to open a group of tabs, then go through them one by one, and notice it happens later in my browsing session, so it could be related to aging, although it doesn't seem to happen any more often in the very active threads than in others.

edit: and it happened with this post, on a freshly-loaded page. Oh, well...
