Shout Problem?

Dave Magaro's picture

Is anyone else having any problems with the shout box? I've done 6 or 7 shouts and none of them posted.... Is it just me? I've tried to answer people but it never posts anymore.

No probs here Dave. When ya post a shout does the page reload or does it just stop responding?

It takes me to the shout

It takes me to the shout archive and won't post. I tried to respond to your shout test with no luck. I'm going to jump on another computer and see if it works on that one.

It worked on the other

It worked on the other computer, so it must be this computer. This computer is just very basic without a lot of bells, whistles, and programs.

That's odd. Probably too

That's odd. Probably too many variables to isolate it. I've had it happen and not happen on the same box (Dell WinXP lappy) with the same browser (Firefox 2.x). I can't find any predictable pattern. It just flakes sometimes.

I've had trouble with it

I've had trouble with it taking me to the archived shouts page instead of posting my shout.

Once summer classes are over (last day = August 3rd), I'll finally bite the bullet and get us upgraded to the latest version of Drupal. It's been out long enough that they should have the kinks worked out by now. And there should be plenty of updated modules to do the things we need.

Now if they just had a module that would make it easy to post tab/notation examples....

That's exactly what it does

That's exactly what it does Wheat... It takes me to the archive. I try to shout but I have no voice....hehehe!

I think logging out and back

I think logging out and back in will fix it, Dave. It seems that, once it's doing it, it keeps on doing it. So maybe you can trick it.

As good as ShoutBox has been to us, I'm going to find a better one when we upgrade.

I'll give that a shot,

I'll give that a shot, thanks Wheat. I'm just afraid that now that Hazz is armed with this information he will be beating me up in the shout box..... KNOWING that I can't defend myself.....LOL!
