  • What you see above, is NOT what I posted. I copy/pasted the whole error page & it pasted perfectly in the composition box. But when I posted it, above is what posted & has no relation to what I posted. I will try it again now..

  • Ok, i have recopied the text from the error page. It is already pasted below & is all there, all 6 lines of the code or error or whatever it is. I noticed that what posted in the above previous post, is about 1/2 of line 4.

    Now I will again try to post...

  • As you can see, the same thing happened & it only posted 1/2 (the 2nd half) of line 4. I have never before seen, on any phone or any pic I've used, where I can copy text & paste it no problem in to a text field & then upon posting it to a site (such as this one) that it does what you twice now. I will now try to access this page via a different browser, if that's possible & try to paste the text that way.

  • In addition, there is the previously reported issue(s) that only rarely does my message post w/o problem. Almost ea time, what happens is I get combinations of: blanking out text box, loss of anchor so it sends me to top of page, sometimes to a previous page altogether, and so I must copy what I've typed, before trying to post it, otherwise it instantly eats it & loses it for me. On approx 50% of the posting attempts, after it blanks out the text box & does not post, if I wait awhile & then refresh, then the post occurs, but the other half of the time, it never does so & the process must me repeated.

  • Is there any way to 1) edit a post? 2) delete a post?

    In addition to my question of how to post a screenshot?...can it come from my local drive (card) or does it have to be sent to where it has an online address?

  • Apparently, the reason that only the half line of text posted, instead of the 6 lines of text of the error, is due to this "markdown" since all the rest of the text, before & after the half line that posted, was angle bracketed. So this seems to mean that one cannot post any text that includes any of the otherwise normal use of the character that markdown employs. If that is true it's the dumbest thing I've ever seen. In other words, markdown employs the use of normal, regularly & often used characters, so is there a way to "turn on/turn off" the markdown? If not, then it seems one cannot use angle brackets, square brackets, equal signs, underscores, ampersands pound signs,etc, therefore cannot post text that includes those characters??? And just how would the everyday, common, casual poster know this? Is opera mini the antichrist?

    p.s. it also keeps signing me out & preventing me from using the forum.

  • Just tried to go to this site, using om, for some DD. it won't open at all. Went to UC browser to try it & it opened fully.

    lol, for sure it is 🙂

  • Is there any way to 1) edit a post?

    Yes, just click on the icon below the post count (the one on the left) and then on edit. You can edit your post up to 30 minutes after have posted them.

  • "Yes, just click on the icon below the post count (the one on the left) and

    Thx leocg... Well, that might explain something... what icon? There is no icon below the post count on my screen. Any idea why not? (funny thing tho...its such a simple answer (outside the fact it doesn't show on my screen), yet I asked the mod guy & he couldn't tell me that..

  • I just checked this forum page in 3 other browsers. The icon (?) you noted does not show in any of those either. Interestingly, the font size & text layout is bigger & better in the other 3 non opera mini browsers. Also noticed that there are thumbs up/down option showing in those other browsers but it doesn't show for me in opera mini. Pretty ironic, when your own browser depicts/displays your forum worse than in other browsers.

    Anyway no icon for edit...

  • Also just noticed that the post count reads the same for me on the entire page.

  • Except the one above. As soon as I said that, the count increased by 1. All the rest on this page read 95. I'm beginning to suspect a corrupt install?

    I may as well add here... that it sometimes gives me the "2 posts within 120 sec" error, when I didn't do that & after waiting the required 5 min, it still gives same error.

  • Duh... I just realized how dumb what I said is... lol... I was for some reason thinking in terms of "numbered in order" rather than the post count #.. but still no icon..

  • Also just noticed that the post count reads the same for me on the entire page.

    As it should. The count will change when you post new comments

  • I may as well add here... that it sometimes gives me the "2 posts within 120 sec" error, when I didn't do that & after waiting the required 5 min, it still gives same error.

    It's an anti-flood forum setting.

    Btw, all that discussion about the forum is kinda off-topic here.

    Can't you see even the "quote" icon?

  • Ok, I've just checked and it seems that Opera Mini doesn't show the tools and quote icons.

    Not sure if it's a Mini issue or a forum one.

  • "I may as well add here... that it sometimes gives me the "2 posts

    ...You missed the point. I said: "...when I didn't do that" (meaning I didn't violate the time rule so it shouldn't kick in the error)... and also I added that: "after waiting the required 5 min, it still gave the error..".

    So I was describing how the anti spam thing wasn't working properly, as described above... which by default, implies/shows that I already understood what it was there for... while you are only telling about the anti spam, which I obviously already knew of.

    As to "all that discussion about the forum".... What IS "the topic"? I was reporting various malfunctions of the browser. While doing so I experienced the 2 issues w/the errors, which shouldn't have occurred, so it seems reasonable to make note of it at that point. Moreover, I don't know at this point, nor do I think you know, that any difficulties I described (including the 2 re: the posting errors) are: 1) due to the browser, 2) due to the forum architecture, 3) due to phone/device, or 4) any combination of above. I made that point in a previous thread, where the errors & malfunctions were either not answered/explained or, we're not answered correctly, sameness above where I reported the 2 errors thrown which shouldn't have been thrown because they were not triggered by the reality of the rules built in to the anti spam efforts. The only reason I even mentioned that it happened, was to add to the list of all the malfunction & non+working things, I constantly & consistently have experienced, for a long time. And it also was hoping that reporting enough of them & their nature, might help to sort out whether the cause(s) were due to whatever from the list of possibilities above.

    Again, what "topic" do you refer to?

  • ...and also, the only reason things went to forum specific issue is because I could not delete or edit & so I asked which led to your question about the icon, which I said there's no icon showing & led to other points.
