isn't really working. When replying to a thread and clicking to post the reply, it reloads the page (with the message still in the message box) but this time as a new thread?

I use this forum www.network54.com/forum/188020

I'm not an admin, just a user having problems.

go to Beezer's board an see what happened over there. The forum won't post in line and I have to hit preview and then post to get it do anything. quotation marks and apostrophes make it insert \\ as well.

They goofed up somewhere.

not much I can do about it. I guess there was an update that somehow affected Google Chrome users only, since no one else is having the problem.

Hi Ripper,

Once again, thanks for your efforts. I've just tested again and the problem hasn't changed. Surely there must be some way of escalating the problem to Network54 technical staff?

I'm running Windows XP, and my current version of Chrome, 7.0.517.41, was released on 19 October 2010. The problem with posting on Network54 Forums didn't appear until some time after my last successful post using Chrome on Forum 198833 which was at 20:01 UTC+1 on October 21 2010. I noticed the problem when attempting to post on 23 October and reported it in this Forum

Since the last Chrome update had already been in for 2 days at the time of that last successful post the ball is well and truly in Network54's court! It has to be an update they've introduced some time after 20:01 UTC+1 on October 21 2010. I used to be a Systems Programmer, it's not exactly rocket science to look back through a list of patches applied, do some intelligent thinking, put two and two together, and fix the problem!

There should be at least some clues as to what's gone wrong in the post I made here when I reported the problem.

If Network54 want to abandon 8% and growing (Chrome current usage) of all web users then so be it, but that would seem a pretty stupid decision to me!

Again, thanks for your efforts.

Regards,

A_L

As far as I'm concerned Network54 have created the problem, and they really ought to solve it. Meantime however here's a workaround for Chrome users who'd like to be able to post!

Install the Chrome extension 'IE Tab'. Here's the page in Google's Extensions Pages.

This seems to do exactly what it says on the tin. You use IE in a Chrome tab - and as IE can post on Network54, so can you! Absolutely brilliant! I can't certify that it won't rip off your data and plunder your identity, but hey, 616000 users can't be wrong - at least I hope not!
