    Problems with preview of post

    I have had this happen occasionally and usually, if I keep trying, I can get the preview to appear and then eventually be able to post my message. I finally documented the error this morning and have attached a pic of part of the post that I was trying to preview and the error message I received. Obviously since I was answering someone's post, it did have a subject line. It's nothing serious of course, but it is a little annoying so I thought I'd mention it. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    In a word, Noidea <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    We've had no other reports of similar - or even dis-similar - problems. Can you try clearing your cache and cookies and see if that helps?

    Re: Problems with preview of post

    I generally practice good housekeeping - emptying cache and eating cookies <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> but I made sure I did it before trying to answer this post. This is an intermitted problem. Since I don't post lots, I didn't know whether it is something that only plagues me or if anyone else has ever experienced it - hence my reason for noting it in Lounge Matters. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> This "previewed post" behaved okay! So I guess it is a "we will see what happens" event!

    Thanks for your reply! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Problems with preview of post

    Maybe the problem is limited to the Scuttlebutt forum where Lex does not think previewing is needed there??? Don't give the ol' lizard more work than he already has. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Guess what? I just tried to preview this post and the same error occurred. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15> The browser I'm using is Safari but I wouldn't think this has any bearing on the problem. The cache is cleaned and cookies are chomped so I haven't a clue what to try next? Any ideas - anyone? The browser I'm using is Safari but I wouldn't think this has any bearing on the problem.

    Apparently it also causes repetition of sentences. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Easy enough to check out - can you try another browser for a while and see if you still get problems?

    Re: Problems with preview of post

    To Hans - Do I have a duplicate of posts showing up or something? I'm afraid I don't understand the joke that is being made by you, Leif and Rudi......... <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    To Leif - yep, I realize that to troubleshoot my problem I can use FF. But this problem only recently started so I don't think it is browser related.......we'll see.

    To Rudi - <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> Lions are usually trying to avoid people on Safaris! Have fun running around that Christmas Tree.

    Thanks for clearing this up for me! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> I'm glad I can provide comic relief from time to time! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    No problem!

    (We often see what we think ought to be there, instead of what actually is there)

    Me too (postings from home) and I haven't shared in this experience.
