« on: September 08, 2022, 15:52:33 »
I have tried to make a post on the Vendor and eBay tab 3 times but when I click “Post” I get a return to a blank page and there is no posting. Does anyone have any idea of what is going on?
Thanks,
RB

I discovered it was the size of a couple of the photos I was trying to attach. When I changed them the problem went away.

This is weird and maybe I’m blind. I have started new topics in the past but for the life of me I cannot find the new topic button. I can reply to posts though (obviously).  There is supposed to be one at the start and end of the topics.   I am logged in.
Any help?

If I go to any of the sub-forums, where it shows all the thread in that sub-forum, there's the 'new topic' button?

I am missing the "New Topic" button on all theme boards both on PC (Widows) and on iPhone.

Same

Cannot create a new topic either.

Even the “Show unread posts since your last visit” is rather thin at the moment.

Usually a good 8-10 posts, at the moment it’s lucky to be 4 a day.

This makes me feel better. I have been looking for 20min to try and post my first question ever and it looks like there is an IT issue to sort out? Look forward to any solutions shared. JS

I'm getting the same view that Kampala posted - Just "Reply" and "Mark Unread" buttons.

I checked my profile settings but don't see anything there to adjust.

Along with my iPhone not showing the New Topic button neither does my Apple computer.  I have logged off and on but no joy.

Try going back to pressing your home button, then press the topic you wish to post under and it should then give you the ability to post “new topic”.

Tried that earlier. Several of us seem to be having this problem. I’m guessing it’s the system not us.

Only Vendors (check your member status) can post new posts in the Vendor topic. And... I screwed up. I thought I made changes to the boards to prevent members from making New Posts in the Announcements topic, but it appears I limited everyone's ability to post new topics everywhere.

Please try again...
