What's up with the forums lately?

Postby roda havet » Sun Jul 23, 2017 10:21 am

The past couple of times that I've posted something it doesn't show up in the new post section or in the view your post. Plus in the view your post section it seems some of the past post I've made are not showing up and when you first go to that page it starts with post made back in 2015 first with some of 2016 post placed here and there. It looks as if things are all mixed up. Does anyone what that's about? :)

I just answered my own question about the view your posts. It seems they have put that in alphabetical order according to usernames of original poster. :)

I'm posting here because it's not letting me post anywhere else. It keeps saying 'too few character'. I hope all is doing well. :)

Go to your profile and check the "Disable BBCode".

Thank you both. I'll try it and see if it works. :)

What the heck is 'bbc code'? I had that happen to me in the lounge and then here. Hopefully, this takes.

@miketom:
It's just a special kind of code that some forums use to enable special text editing, quoting previous posts and such..

WD isn't interested in maintaining their software, so it's all broken now. Just disable it in your preferences.

It's still under construction, but come take a look.

So nice to see you back here, Lyn. Any luck with the Bridge Door story lately? :D

And to see your true sign-in Captain Rob. Is it for keeps, or are you using that old machine again?

Sadly, only the one machine.

I get keeping told that this login problem across multiple machines and going on for three months now will clear itself in a day or two.

We all know what the REAL problem is. But no one at WD is going to fix that.

Hear that hissing sound? It's the forum software about to crash. It's only a matter of time.
