He already has a real browser. You on the other hand, use an ugly and slow piece of code.

I use Opera 11, and don't have any of those "blank post" probs.


I've never had a blank post with FF... :-p

Check the website discussion further... 'cuz people did. For fact.

What pisses me off, is when you write a long post, hit the "reply" button and then a complete blank post with nothing written on it appears.

It is mesmerising.


try editing and pushing ctrl z. That a lot of the time makes the post come back :)

Not in Opera browser :/

At least if it does happen to me I can just ctrl z and rnot have a blank post any longer :P



Sig thanks to Saber! :D

If you're having troubles embedding a youTube video make sure on you're using the old embed code.

On youTube click the embed button and then there should be a series of checkboxes.  The bottom one should say use old embed code, make sure that is checked.

Or just do what dsisters pic showed... It's been a long time since I had a problem using the embedded media tool.

(ie copy the url of the youtube vid (from the url bar in your browser) and paste it into the box in the embedded media window.


Yah I thought I clarified I am aware of how to use the video tool. However the URL worked with one video but the other URL didn't. This happens often and I have to right click and copy the current time URL. Then I'm wondering why the embed media button doesn't appear when creating a new thread, I have to always edit the thread afterwards and embed the video.

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Hmm. Only thing I can think of is try to download the latest version if you don't already have it

Edit: And you did clarify. I just can't read :-p

@Xen: I don't want to hear it :P
