    Anyone else having trouble??

    Please is anyone else struggling with writing Forum posts??

    Every other website I use works okay, but on here it's taking ages for every letter I type to appear (just writing the correcting this sentence has taken ages) I can't highlight any text, the up/down page scrolling freezes and copy and paste doesn't work

    Thing is I'm using a new laptop bought yesterday, but like I said everything else is fine


    HELP!!!!!!!!!!

    I had trouble with I.E. and it lasted a while but I could use Firefox if I wanted to nightlight/colour and do my normal stuff etc.
    Then James' techies did some of their techie stuff and all the stuff I could do before came back.

    Now as you can tell with my use of the word 'stuff', Mrs M does NOT stand for Mrs Mistress of the Internet, but it all works now so that's fine.

    Have you tried a different browser [?] ?

      I have found the same thing. I thought it was my computer as we have just changed from windows xp to windows 7. Los of letters missing when I type and text takes a long time to appear.

        I'll try Firefox for a change and see what happens - I'm using Internet Explorer at the moment. As I mentioned, the funny thing is that every other site is okay

        Another odd thing I that I typed most of that first sentence with no problems, but now it's playing up again (I've corrected this now as otherwise you'd no chance of understanding it!!

        PS Thanks so much "Sunshine" ... it's a relief to know it's not this new computer

        Cheers,
        Lynn

          Hi Lynn,

          Can't say I've noticed too much of a problem today but it tends to happen at random times so anything could happen later.

            Hi Lynn

            I had a similar issue a couple of months ago and Trevor solved it for me. I can't remember what the solution was but I had to adjust my settings. I'll have a quick trawl and let you know if I find the solution.

            Go to settings and scroll down to Message Editor Interface and select Basic Editor

                Check your settings Mike per my post before - I had similar issues and Trevor's suggestion fixed it.

                      I've been having similar problems, but it seems OK at the moment. I'm on Windows 8, and my laptop is about a year old.

                      Funnily enough it has started playing up mid-post!

                          Hi Mike

                          I think the tip was to switch to Basic Editor in settings.

                            Sounds about right Annie .... having said that it sometimes plays up for me still. I've found the best way of overcoming it when it happens is to post a reply without the formatting (which is missing when it goes wrong) then immediately do an 'Edit Post' and you should find the formatting icons suddenly appear again as if by magic and you can insert the formatting you want and save changes.

                              Still playing me up ... except that each letter's now taking even longer to load

                              There was something said about changing settings on this site - please can anyone talk me through that? It would have to be in VERY simple language, mind!!!!!!

                              Cheers,
