I'm still having issues with signatures beside instead of under posts, and stretching pages like mad...

Saff - are you using Chrome?  Is it linked to this?.

I think Vekls said it had been put on the buglist for SMF.

I'm having significant issues with the site when I try to access it from work. Admittedly, I'm only using IE 6 at work (I wish they'd let us upgrade!), but we've got a good strong connection...

First, the formatting is all messed up with images piling on top of other images and indents all whacked out.

Second, when I try to post, I get all kinds of "session verification" and "session timeout" errors.

I'm thinking of upgrading one of my computers (at work) to IE 7 or 8, and to hell with the consequences. Would that fix the issues?

This is what I typed in the New Message text box.

What's new?  What's happening?  I don't know.  We're not here.  Aren't you going?


This is what the text looks like after I click Preview.  The text in the Preview box is fine.

What\'s new?  What\'s happening?  I don\'t know.  We\'re not here.  Aren\'t you going?


This is what happens when I click Preview again.  The text in the Preview box has single slashes.

What\\'s new?  What\\'s happening?  I don\\'t know.  We\\'re not here.  Aren\\'t you going?


Each time I click the Preview button I get new slashes added.  I'm using Firefox.  Any advice?

Safari and Chrome use the same engine.

Gah, I can't even get the Internet Explorer collection to work properly ATM. It mostly works as per the IE collection, but I know that's not very faithful to some of IE 6's quirks, especially with me running XP 64.

Session timeouts may have to do with your cookies and cookie settings - try putting elliquiy.com in your trusted zone.

I'm not getting it, but I see where it's probably coming from. I'll file a bug.

Thanks.  I wasn't such a problem until I was PMing about a story and kept forgetting to remove the slashes or forgot to not use contractions.  I'm a big fan of contractions if you haven't noticed.

Upgraded to IE7, which fixed the formatting problem. Added Elliquiy to trusted sites, but still get the timeout problem.

Hm. Anything for privacy at all? Can you tell if Elliquiy's session cookie is actually getting set? How about your computer's clock?

A few times now, I've used quick-reply and hit post, only to have it disappear on me entirely.  IT appears to happen when someone else posts at the same time, but I don't get the usual red warning about someone else posting.

...let me know if they magically reappear all of the 'sudden'.

I think, sadly, it's time that I stopped looking forward to SMF and just moved on : /

This happened again just now, and by chance I thought to hit the back arrow on my browser.  It actually appeared with the red warning "someone just posted".   A sort of strange bug?  If two people hit post at the same time one of the posts seems to completely disappear, but when you go back it reappears.  *poof*

I have been connecting with Firefox forever now with practically no problem at all.  Right now, I cannot log in with it at all.  It says,

     "You were unable to login. Please check your cookie settings."

This happens regardless of whether I start out with http or https.  I have confirmed I have the right password (thus I'm able to get in with IE8).  I'm on Win XP SP 3, same machine as all year.

Seems to be a transitory issue.  I had that problem earlier where it said I wasn't logged in, or couldn't log in (similar setup).  The login button/password towards the top of the screen worked where the one in the center of the screen (associated with the error message) did not.

While I was logged out twice today (the second time even not accepting my saved password until I had retyped it), which is odd, considering the 'always' box was and remains ticked.

   Thanks for answering, but neither of those buttons is working for me at the moment.

Btw, I also checked the Firefox cookie setting.  It's accepting them until they expire.  I don't believe I've touched it in ages, either.  Haven't changed or installed anything dramatic that I can think of recently; I was on with Firefox not long ago.

Ditto. Same thing happened to me this morning. More odd than annoying.

I had the same issues three times this morning, once when trying to preview a post, and twice when trying to open a thread.  It happened on two different computers and while trying to log back in on both computers I received a password error message for the stored password on the computer.  I hadn't changed the stored password.  It just wouldn't work.

     Is it all happening when using Firefox, or does this happen with other browsers too?

So do I. But I'm tempted to load up Chrome as well, to see how that one reacts.

Those were my fault. Shouldn't happen again, really, but will see : /

Stored passwords might not (the way logging in is setup by default, you don't even send your password with javascript enabled). If you're having issues, I would recommend clearing all elliquiy.com cookies from your browser, as well as any Elliquiy specific stored passwords, and any cache. You will need to restart your browser.

     Just tried that.  It doesn't seem to be resolving it at the moment.
