Missing "Post" Button January 2, 2002 12:17 PM   Subscribe

The 'Post' button for comments seems to have stopped working for me in Mac IE 5.1. The button is there, but it doesn't do anything.

I had to switch to Netscape (!) to post a comment.

But the 'Post' button here in MetaTalk works just fine.

Yep, me too. Coincidentally, I was trying to reply to jjg in the apple thread, in which the formatting has gone balls-up too. Maybe there's some bad HTML in the thread?

*goes to look*

Nothing obvious that I can see. However, something with mr_roboto's <BR /> tags is screwing up the formatting.

(I've mentioned this before, but that tag-closing code interacts with some tags in a bad way on about 10% of the pages I look at. Also Mac IE 5.1, Mac OS X)

Same problem, same thread. Odd, that. The "preview" button also stops working after the first time I click it - the "preview" button on the first page works, but the one next to the "post" button does not.

Same thing happened to me (Mac IE 5.1), while trying to post a comment to the mythical 9622. I assumed it was punishment for trying to enter that dark realm.

is it just on certain threads, or all of them?

The Apple thread is the one that gave me trouble. Liam had the same problem with this one.

I figured posting test comments to every thread would not be smiled upon by the management.
