Still seeing problems with EDIT not... editing.

Not a clue why or what the trigger for this one is but often I'll do a quick edit and it'll just refuse to show up.  I think it's typically when there's a very short time span between the post and edit.

What really Jives me is that it doesn't always happen (this is with the same Chrome browser), ex I just did a fast edit on this forum in a post before this but it showed up fine.  What gives JIVE?  This 'forum' jiveware = fail.

So is this a known issue or one of our many "accepted bugs"?  Something as basic as "edit" should work every time...

I can confirm that. If I spot a mistake in my pos

t, sometimes it takes three or four tries to get the e

dit to stick.

Hi Ansury

As you say you are using Chrome and we have all been advised that the forum software is a few versions behind, maybe what we are using doesn't work that well in Chrome?

</speculation mode>

Cheers... Rick

I can confirm that this happens MANY times in Safari 4.0.5.

I can edit a message and the edit doesn't show up in the thread. I can go back in to edit the message again and the previous edits are there in the edit box (they just aren't carrying over to the thread itself). Sometimes it takes going into the edit field 2-3 times and resaving before it will show up in the actual thread.

Hmm, with the large number of admin responses I can see that this is indeed a "known" (but that's about it) issue.

To date, I have not encountered this anomaly, and am using Chrome too. All edits, regardless of the elapsed time from post, are taking for me.

I know that does not help in your case, but at least another user with Chrome is not seeing such. Should that change, I'll update.

Good luck,

Hunt

PS - now I did get a double post yesterday, but that was probably just OE on my part - maybe a hiccup, just as I hit Post Reply. Also, I waited about 30 sec. and added this PS.

I haven't had any problems with editing in the forums.

And I use Mozilla products (SeaMonkey/FireFox/ Camino) although I have tried Opera, OmniWeb, iCab, and Safari on a Mac (OSX.4.11).
