Problems with long post...
« on: February 01, 2010, 05:25:53 PM »
By the way Mid, Im not sure whats happening on my machine, but Im having a hard time responding to posts because if my post is too long and goes past the window, it the scroling starts jumping around all over and acting erratic making it impossible fo me to type in the little window. I end up having to type in notepad and paste into the window in order to respond, very frustrating..

i also so hdinred post that he does too.        so what's going on now?    maybe i'll just make the maximum amount of letters in a post, or words,.. make that more?       would that help?               i'm going to check right now.

also.. is this during quick reply, or the regular old fashion posting?

you can scroll down, but as soon as you type it pops back up a few lines and you cant see what your typing, thats my only problem with it.

Same thing happens here. Like when I edit the new release thread it does the same. I do the same and put it into wordpad. It is very annoying.

No problems on  Chrome for me. I'll do some digging around to see if its a common issue! :)

Looks like there are 3 solutions to this issue:

Solution One
Enable the quickreply box in your settings.
To do this go to Profile > Look and Layout preferences and set the quick reply dropdown box to "Show on by default"

The quickreply box is unaffected by the bug from what I can tell. :)

Solution Two
Enable IE8 "compatibility mode".
Quote
Yeah, in IE8 at the top to the right of the address bar you'll see an icon of a torn in half piece of paper. Click on that which will turn on compatability mode and should solve that issue.
This makes your Internet Explorer 8 run in IE7 mode so is proabably less than ideal.

Solution Three
Switch to Chrome, Firefox or Opera! :P
