Thanks Michael. At this end it seems to work perfectly.

Everything seems to be in order except that I am unable to log out. All I get is a "loading" message.

I take that back. I can't get into my account settings either. I get a black page. Also, no flag.

Yes only just noticed that, i too am getting ( loading ) at my name top left of page next to my messages and alerts...

Oldiesmann

Fixed the "Loading..." issue. Still working to figure out why it's not asking you to choose your country on your profile.

Oldiesmann

Found the issue. I missed a file edit last night. You can now select your flag from your profile again :)

Michael I have repeatedly emailed you concerning nonworking parts of Seniors & Friends. I have yet to receive a reply so I'm posting here as well as sending yet another email to the address that Bubble assures me is legit.

The quick reply button does not work.  I am unable to post graphics. Multiple functions such as
quick edit, alerts, and discard do not work or freeze the system.

I have not had any Microsoft updates, issues with my laptop or other sites other than S&F.

I would like some help please.

Is the "Quick Reply" supposed to be the same full function as the regular Reply, ---- or is it just a Quick Reply (as it states)?

I added this with "Quick Edit".

From the"Simple Machine" Help area.
"If 'Quick Reply' has been enabled, a simple Reply field will also appear after the posts on a page, but you will have to type your Bulletin Board Code and Smileys manually if you choose to use them."
So, as it says, it's a Quick Reply box.
Don't know if Michael did any mod's to this.

I see a box for Quick Reply with all the tabs for sizing, color,  etc plus the "expression faces" (are these called memes?) after the last post on every page.

patricia19

I see them but they stopped working for me last Thursday.

CallieOK

Do you mean the letters won't show when you type them? That's weird.

What browser are you using?
Something to try/check - with no solid reason.  Under VIEW and or ZOOM set it so there is NO zoom, then check.

I'm not getting notices about messages here, so posting with the Quick Reply which seems to be working fine for me.


patricia19

I'm using Windows ten with the Edge browser. When I click the reply button, I see the same form for adding attachments. If I click on the Quick Edit, it turns a slight blueish tint as if it was indented but nothing else. The only way to change a post is to use the modify button. If I try to use the alerts button, it shows nothing, however, sometimes I will see a  Likes afterward. If I click on a like someone else has done, it takes me to a full page with a single or partial sentence at the top.

If I attempt to post a graphic, it either tells me I need to post a written message first. But doing that isn't much help as to whether I try to post a graphic with a title, it tells me either it doesn't show, or I need to post the full four graphics. Then that doesn't work.

Rick, I don't understand what you mean by, "Something to try/check - with no solid reason.  Under VIEW and or ZOOM set it so there is NO zoom, then check."

Idon't, and haven't, used Edge. So I don't know what your options are.
I use FireFox. I would guess other browsers are similar or have similar features.
Fact - the size of the print can be enlarged or shrunk by holding down CTRL and scrolling or hitting the + or- key.
Up top of my browser is File, Edit, View, etc, etc. If I click VIEW a dropdown menu show among other things ZOOM. ZOOM has several selections related to size. I was trying to suggest you set it to NO ZOOM (in my case it says "Actual Size")
I would bet EDGE has a similar feature.  Find it and try it.
I can't recall the reason or logic behind this but a ringing bell in my head says try it.  Can do no harm and might help.

That doesn't work with Edge as there is no on or off with zoom, only a size percentage. But thanks for trying.

Oldiesmann

Sorry for not responding. I've been busy lately and just now saw your email. I'm not sure why things aren't working for you. I tested the site in Edge on my computer and didn't run into any problems at all.

Reload anew the browser?
Try S&F with Firefox?

Here's my summary. I don't want to reload/renew Microsoft's Edge as that means going through the hassle of resetting my computer and downloading everything again. The last time I did that wasn't long ago. I'm sorry, Rick, but your zoom idea didn't work for me.

Using Firefox, Quick Edit still does not work. When I click on someone else's likes, it still takes me to a full page for one single short sentence at the top. When I click upon a like for my posts, it shows a detailed summary of what looks like each like I ever received!

Even posting use the Modifying form.  When I post a graphic, I could post only a single graphic, but the process is different. You cannot simply post a graphic without words. And when I select the graphic, you do not have the insert part of the procedure. Nor do you see your graphic title in the posting box, only under attachments. This means after selecting a graphic; you post not being sure if your graphic is actually there.

I have no issues posting with any other site on my computer.

Oldiesmann

As far as posting pictures goes, once you attach a file and click "Upload" you will see the option to insert it into the post.

I don't know what to tell you otherwise. Nothing significant changed between versions that should cause any problems.

Next time you visit the site hold down the CTRL key and press R. That will force the browser to reload the graphics and such and may fix the issues (though I don't know why you'd also be experiencing the same issues in Firefox as well).

Michael, as I previously told you, that option, insert, no longer exists the same as Quick Edit no longer exists, and if I click on a "like" it takes me to another page with one small sentence at the top.

When you put in text in the message box, I am no longer allowed to post a photo or graphic without text; a place opens to browse for a photo or graphic. Once you locate your photo or graphic, it closes, and when you hit the post, you hope your photo or graphic is there.

Since August 27th, there has been no change in the site errors for me.

Michael, one of our Bosom Buddies...Cotton Candy (CC)  is having a problem seeing posts in our Breast Cancer Support Group.  She sees only blanks.

Here is her post:

"Still unable to sign in or read bosom Buddies...blank page..CC"


Oldiesmann

Patricia: I'm not sure what to tell you. I did change one setting to pull one of the files from a different location which might help but other than that it sounds like a problem on your end.

Michael, sorry to add to your list of our forum issues but, underneath is a copy of a pm message to me yesterday from our long standing member Jeanne P... can you help her with her configuring issue...we would love to see her back posting with us..

Quoting Jeanne P: " Also i have tried to put the S and F back to the way it was working for me. Cant get it to work. Just wants to go back to 2016 on all the posting. That was the date the new system started up."

" look after our planet, it is the only one we have "   

patricia19

Michael, Cotton Candy cannot see comments in the formn "Bosum Buddies.

Oldiesmann

I'll look into the issues when I get a chance but have no idea what could be causing either problem.

patricia19

Michael, the issues I had with quick edits and alerts and or likes have been resolved, thank you. The photo slash graphic issue remains. You cannot post a photo/graphic on its own. You must add text to each post. After you've added text, you browse, click on the photo, and then post what you've selected. There is no longer an insert or acknowledgment that your item will show until you post.
