@Linc:
I think we may be experiencing some programming problems on site...

For my part:
If I try to post a picture from my own files, I no longer get it appearing in the main comment box; it appears as a small icon UNDERNEATH, that members have to click on to access. This didn't used to happen; I could place my cursor within the comment box, click on the black, portrait-orientated icon, ('attach file')select an image, and press enter, and it would be posted in the comment box with the text.

If using the landscape icon ('attach image') you used to be able to EITHER choose a file OR enter the URL. If I paste the URL and click 'enter', occasionally it posts the URL in the comment box - but not always. It just sits there, doing nothing.
I have to come back to the post later, and try again. sometimes it wsorks, sometimes it doesn't.
Also, for me, the 'attach image' option box has changed. You used to be able to either select file, or enter url, via 2 different selection option 'buttons', but now, I don't get the 'or enter URL' option. It's 'select file' or 'enter URL' in the actual URL box....

Anyone else experiencing the same?
Any other current problems?

(I have had 2 members PM me with difficulties in starting new threads, although in both cases, the issue seemed to disappear....)

    I would add Linc is away currently, so don't expect an overnight response.... ;

    I am not able to post a new thread - it says permission problem. So please suggest. Thanks.

    @misecmisc1 please see pm response. :)

  • personperson Don't believe everything you think 'Merica! Veteran

    Yes, I've had problems posting new threads. When I start a new one I keep getting an error message that says something about not having permission for some reason relating to gardens. What I've done to resolve it for myself is to copy my post, close the one I'm making, start a new one where I paste what I've written and so far that new one has been able to post.

    Thanks for the info.

    Recently sent @Linc news on glitches.
    I have had to use the temporary measure @person mentions.
    Previewing a post just never happens and pressing 'post comment' does not happen as the preview is still being attempted ...

    @lobster, yes I get that too.... and when I do get to press 'post comment' sometimes, it's just loading and loading and loading.... and nothing else.

    @Linc: I am not able to post new thread. It is giving permission error. Just now tried the method, which @person suggested above in this thread, so now I am able to post a new thread. Thanks @person for your above post, which helped me to post a new thread.

    Ive encountered similar problems posting to new threads, the copy-and-paste workaround allowed me to proceed as well. I got an error message popping up in the middle of the screen while typing in text.

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Its better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt Moderator

    Every time I click on the 'post comment' (either submitting a post, or after editing) I have to click on 'refresh the page' in order for the post to be submitted. Otherwise, it just sits there doing nothing...

  • lobsterlobster Veteran

    I can create a new post BUT we await the return of our beloved @Linc

    Today I had to:

    • create post in separate editor
    • select area to post
    • Do not use 'preview' or 'save draft' go straight to 'post comment'

    once on the forum board you can edit if need be

  • ScottPenScottPen Maryland Veteran

    Here's my experience of the same error:

    I'm encountering a frequent error message:

    • open a new discussion
    • switch tabs to find text I want to copy
    • switch back to new discussion tab
    • get this error message: { "Code": 403, "Exception": "You need the Garden.Community.Manage permission to do that.", "Class": "Gdn_UserException" }

    The error message pops back up over and over and I can't post the discussion. However, I've used the copy, hit "back," open new, paste and post quickly workaround.

    Ok, this is a problem, now...

    (Specifically, this:)

    When I do this, [try to publish a picture from my own folder of photos] my selected photo appears as a thumbnail under my post, and members have to click on it to view it.

    I don't know why this happens, or how to change it, because it never used to happen; my photos always used to appear within the post, as @lobster's have done [with his magpie fledgling photos.]

    And if I edit a post (mine or anyone else's), I can't post the comment, I have to click on 'save comment' then refresh the page.

    Like @ScottPen I'm also apparently not a Garden Manager. I'll take the job if the salary is right...

    Any news? Is the Vanilla software being updated? Rewritten? Are we being karmically punished for our scenes?

    I'll be good! (theoretically) o:)

    I’m having the same problem but I’m not too worried about the salary if the right crops are being grown.

    I must admit it did prompt me to sit on the problem I was going to ask about and I actually came away a little wiser, it helped me put things in perspective and I realise how lucky I am and how happy I should be.

    I’m not sure who the current garden manager is but thank you, I need to sit in this particular oasis more often.

  • KeromeKerome Love, love is mystery The Continent Veteran

    I’m still not able to manage gardens to the software’s satisfaction?

    @Linc will need to address this....
