    I'm having issues editing posts?


    I'm having issues if I post in a thread and then try to edit it right away. I click edit post, make the edit, but when I try to click save, nothing happens, I can't cancel either. Once I click save nothing works after that and it doesn't save? If I post and F5 to refresh the page, I can go in and edit that post with no issues? I don't know if its a browser issue with IE or a forum issue? Anybody else having issues?

    For me it's only when I edit a post I just posted. I see a typo and go back to fix it. I can edit but it won't save the edit. If I leave that thread and come back I can edit a post no problem. Doing an F5 before the edit works too.

    Yup, me too. Rarely I manage to write a post without then having to edit it for some reason so see it a lot.

    I agree, I also am glad to see that it wasn't just me. Some days it just impossible to edit or insert a picture or Link
