Having a Lot of Trouble on Forum
Posted by EIS2 on Friday, November 24, 2017 6:04 PM

I seem to be having a lot of trouble on this forum lately.  Here are my current problems:

1) I have to login almost daily now, even with the 'Keep me logged in' box checked.

2) I cannot upload a photo.  When I click the 'Insert/edit image', I only get the 'Edit image' dialog box.  There used to be a thread on adding photos, but I cannot find it.

3) The 'Search' function doesn't seem to be working properly because I did a search for a word that I knew was in a post, it did not find it.  Yes, I spelled the word correctly.

4) I tried to delete a post where I tried to post an image unsuccessfully, but I cannot find any option to delete the post.

Maybe it is my computer (Macbook Pro) or the new operating system (macOS High Sierra version 10.13.1.  I tried with both Safari (version 11.0.1) and with FireFox (version ESR 52.5.0).

Any help would be appreciated.

Not any help but welcome to the frustation we have been talking about now for I think 2 years.

I noticed the last time I posted pictures, I hit the "insert image" selection, it immediately changed to " edit image", but I just pasted my image there anyway, and it worked. I am using IPad mini 4, and Shutterfly to share the pictures. One of the other share sites proved too difficult to share pictures.

Have not found a way to delete a post, only edit.

"I have to login almost daily now, even with the 'Keep me logged in' box checked."

I wish it worked that well for me.  I can't log in at all without checking that box; and then I get logged out capriciously while trying to read and post.  I haven't noticed any interest in fixing the problem.

I solved one of my problems.  There are two 'Search' boxes; one at the top (which I was using) and one on the right, which works better, but not perfectly.  

The 'Search' box at the top does not search the forum community, even though it has filtering options for 'Full site' and 'Community'.
