When I go to Settings under my Account, the Forum Settings box is cut off. I can not add any pictures, or edit my signature, etc. Is anyone else having this problem?

Yes I have been having that problem for at least 2 and maybe 3 days.   All I know to do is wait until they get it fixed.

So should we notify someone or just wait?

Yeah, my signature is also in limbo, as I can't get to the forum settings...I sent a pm via the problem reporting in the help center's contact us link.

I'm visiting this forum area to see if anything is posted on what's causing the site issues, as well as seeing if there is a timeline on fixing the site's current and recent screwiness...

Has anyone seen any info posted by R&R?

I got  an email from them earlier saying the problem was fixed. If you're still having trouble, I'd send them some feedback and let them know.

Hey Lori:

Yeah I got that same e-mail at around 3:30pm this afternoon...

R&R really do a great job with this site, and the issue isn't a major one, but I'll let them know it is still a problem...

I also e-mailed them (one of them).

 

Now when I click on a forum discussion, most of that is cut off!  However, that problem does get fixed with a refresh.

I still can't copy and paste, so it kind of puts a damper on things.....

Pippa, to get around the cuting & pasting problem, highlight want you want to copy and then hit the control & C buttons at the same time.  Then go to where you want to paste and hit the Control & V buttons at the same time.  This works well for me since I can't right click on my computer at work.

I was having some of these problems, after I cleaned my cashe, I then did a force refresh.

Ctrl and F5 at the same time....much better than just pushing the refresh key.  Might try that.   Hugs Pat

It seems my security settings have precluded my cut and paste and blocks popups.So, oh well.I am not about to downgrade my security settings for one site.

Another weird gripe:Why not use links for photos in siggy's instead of upload them to here?Seems silly.We have hosting sites mostly for that reason.And I wan tmy bbc code!!!!
