Continuous PM problems!
« on: July 31, 2009, 10:32:48 PM »
Is anyone else having problems with their messages? At first when I tried to reply, or send a new message, I'd get the 'internet explorer' error page, but I could hit the back button and the new message page would come up. Now, for the last couple of days when I click on 'reply' 'quote' 'new message' or even go to a member's profile and try to send a message from there, all I'm getting is a blank forum page.

I know some were having problems because of upgrading to IE8, but I'm still using IE7. Had to wait a few hours last night before it finally worked for me, and today I haven't been able to send out any messages since I came online around 4-5pm. Is there another update for the forum that we need to do? Anyone else having problems?

YES! haven't been able to send pm although I was able to send you
e-mails (did you get them?)Quite a few times in the last 36 hours, trying to send a pm would freeze the page and I had to exit completely.

I don't know which IE i'm using, DH is the computer expert and we're on opposite shifts so it'll be a couple days...

It's a little unnerving. I pull names for "Spread the Love" on the weekend and I like to notify them so they have time to get their shops ready..

I haven't checked my outside email yet-been popping on and off the computer all evening! I'll send you a reply from there if I got it.

At the top of your IE page, click on 'help', then 'about internet explorer' and a popup window will come up telling you the version of IE you're using.

Oh good grief!!! I just tried my pm's here and now it's letting me reply to a message-UH OH-probably shouldn't speak too soon-now it'll probably stop working again!!!

I don't have much faith though, I'm figuring the problem will rear it's ugly head again tonight, or tomorrow, or......

Yeah - I am having that problem with IE - pretty much using Firefox when on the forum -

Sorry guys I've checked with our tech person about this and it's IE 8 that is the culprit I believe I don't know what else it is. I don't believe its on our end. As lisian said I use firefox. Honestly I haven't used IE for months as soon as I started using firefox I haven't looked back it's much better than IE in my opinion

Oh! *snickers* i learn something everyday - yes we have IE8 but apparently, we also have firefox. *learned two somethings today!*
Hubby warned of lower security features on firefox but at least I can send messages now!

Thanks for the help!

Ok, I'm still using IE7, but having the same problems as those using IE8, so I've downloaded Firefox, and will use that for my messages on the forum. So far, problem solved!  ;D
