I'm not having any issues with copying and pasting. By "throwing you out" what do you mean? Do you mean you get logged out of the forum? Or the post hangs or something? I can't think of *any* reason why the forum coding would be involved - I can only think it's issues with browsers - can you also include the version numbers of the browsers you are getting the problems on? And am I right in thinking it only happens every now and again? Goldie mentioned she only gets it on certain threads?

EDIT - also - are you copy and pasting using shortcut keys (ctrl C, ctrl v) or using the mouse and right clicking?

What it would do is you post and then it just goes to the main forum board without having posted, you dont get the interim message "your message has been posted".

I was using apple-c/apple-v cause I am on a mac at home.

I will try that problem post again and let you know, I have been able to post elsewhere fine. It is probably a browser thing, on the thread i mentioned i couldnt use tapatalk either... :?:

OK, the problem appears to be a unhandled HTTP response error code that means that it's throwing out back to the front page without saying that an error occured (silva - if you install Fiddler you should be able to see the problem too)

This only seems to occur with large(ish) amounts of text. Um - nope, still pretty random as to *why* it happens when it does. But the error code has been discovered at the very least ;)

I'm investigating:
a) why this has started happening - it didn't used to!
b) what I can change on the server to sort it out

At least I now know what's causing it and why it seems so strange!

OK people

You should not have any problems with this any more, but if you *do* then it's most likely a special character in the content you're posting. If you find it happening do these two things:
1) check your content for special characters (any non letter symbols really) and see if they can be swapped
2) report it to this thread and I'll know where to go to fix it

Thanks!

Is this the fix for the 'can't copy and paste' problem or the 'tried to post and it threw me out' problem or are they actually both the same thing? (Thank you!!) xx :mrgreen:

(EDIT: Just realised as they're both to do with copy & paste they're both the same!)

Just so you guys know I'm getting the problem of being thrown out of the forum on a regular basis again.

Happened on the Shiner thread about 3 times when I hit quick reply, but has been happening on and off at various times...and just happened here!

*shakes fists at sky*

if it happens again can you hit the back button so that you can see the content you were posting, and then email it to me? I doubt it's a special characters problem though

I think the forum server went off today though? So it could be a hosting issue rather than a forum one :?
