    Default Common Forum Tech Issues & How to Fix Them

    I'd like to compile some links to helpful threads in the Q/P/S that explain how people have fixed various tech issues they have encountered while using the forum. Please post with links to threads you have found helpful and I can add it to the main post of this thread. Other helpful general forum tech tips are great too! If we get some good ones, we can sticky this as a help to those having trouble in the future. Thanks for your help!!

    Helpful Tips and Reminders:


    • When a logging in, it is a good idea to check the box "Remember Me" before clicking the login button. This will keep your login active instead of timing out at an unfortunate moment.


    • When creating a post, sometimes word entry freezes while writing, or some word processing glitch will arise. Going to "Advanced" will often clear things up. Sometimes using the left arrow (back) can get you on track.


    • Here in the USA, there will be a time in the late evening when server maintenance and backup will be going on. Patience is required during those times, or avoidance when the slowdown occurs.


    • If you need a post deleted or moved, use the Report Post triangle or the Private Message system to send a message to Moderators, who will do that for you.

    Don't think a link is necessary to briefly mention that when a member logs in, it is a good idea to check the box "Remember Me" before clicking the login button. This will keep your login active instead of timing out at a misfortunate moment.

    When creating a post, sometimes word entry freezes while writing, or some word processing glitch will arise. Going to advanced will often clear things up. Sometimes using the left arrow (back) can get you on track.

    Here in the USA, there will be a time in the late evening when server maintenance and backup will be going on. Patience is required during those times, or avoidance when the slowdown occurs.

    It is best to not get too bent out of shape when tech issues happen. Sometimes taking a screenshot is in order if you value your written product and fear it will be lost.
