Not again

I am having an issue again ... with the boards. Not the spammer one as last time but when ever I post a comment on the boards or send a message I always have to refresh the page.

Key information
It' happened a lot more on chrome that edge.
it' not just on one devise its happens on my tablet, phone as well my laptop

if anyone else is having the same issue please let me know so I know that I'm not alone.

sorry to bother you.

Some people think i am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking

    Hey Abi.

    The same has always seemed to happen to me and I need to refresh the page and then the comment works and the page loads again.

    Me too... and it's been an ongoing irritant for a couple of years.

    I've never liked using Chrome for the forum for the same reason. I've always used Firefox. You're not alone, @Abigail

    I use Chrome and I get the same thing. I don't find it annoying though - it just means you have to press F5 to post, and that's not a big issue at all!x

    Much love <3

    Hey folks :wave:

    Apologies for the delay in responding to this - it's been pretty hectic here since mid-Dec!

    We share your frustration here (we really do). Unfortunately we can't fix the infinite loading wheel issue, but as @Azziman pointed out it's just a case of hitting F5 once you've posted. If it's a particularly long post, it might be good to copy it to your clipboard (super quick way to do that is Crtl+A then Ctrl+C). Then even if the worst case happens and your post hasn't gone through, you've got it saved ready to submit again. :)

    We do have plans to migrate to new forum software soon, which should fix a lot of issues that we see being reported with VBulletin (the software we currently use). Thank you for bearing with us, folks - we'll get there. :yes:
