Thread: Text area grayed out when posting

  1. #1

    Text area grayed out when posting

    Seems like I can't post on chrome, and most of the time I try there's a gray box over the main text area. Anyway - hope everyone's good. If you've got any tips LMK.
    I'm sorry, man, but I've got magic. I've got poetry in my fingertips. Most of the time--and this includes naps --I'm an F-18, bro. And I will destroy you in the air. I will deploy my ordinance to the ground.

    chrome works for me

    would be interested to see the gray box - you might screenshot it and send.

    Chrome just put out a change yesterday that broke some of the sites I support, but not this one (for me at least)

    Yeah I think I'm getting logged out randomly. Looks ok now, might be an intermittent thing.

    logging in is weird. to post I have to login at the top and click the "stay logged in" checkbox. If I dont I get logged out between typing my post and it posting.

    Happens to me too.

    Same here for a while now. But I'm starting to get used to being forced to log in and out 3-6 times each time I post. I have also got in the habit of copying each post before I hit the "Reply" button so I can paste it instead of retyping following the inevitable forced log out. I suspect that many other posters who have disappeared are not as patient as I am.

    Cookies are cleared (3-6 times before each post).
    Same issue with multiple PC browsers (Firefox & Microsoft Edge).

    That's so bizarre. I've never encountered this problem on Chrome, so I'm not sure what the solution may be.

    Is this possibly related to the site certificate having issues? Just a wild guess on my part.
