Thread: Grey box

  1. #1

    Default Grey box

    On some threads, I'm unable to post because there's a solid grey box on certain threads. Just wondering what that is?

    Which threads? If you're both seeing it, you should compare and see if it's in the same threads.

    I would need to know what threads you are experiencing this, otherwise there is nothing I can do

    Just to let you know, I too am getting the Grey box in various threads. Using both Fire fox and safari on a Mac. the grey box appears in the reply input field, which means you can't type anything. Its very random.

    It's been happening to me too, completely random threads. I'm using the nightly Aurora builds on Windows, also happens on Chrome.

    I experienced this last night as well. I believe it was when I created my Danny post-ASG thread. I posted it, then I went to edit it, but the box that came up was gray and I couldn't do anything with it. Refreshed, shift + refreshed, didn't help.

    I'm Win8 using Chrome latest ed.

    I've been getting it, too. I'm reasonably certain it has to do with the new feature that auto-saves posts so you can restore them at a later date in case you leave/crash/whatever.

    That feature has been here long before now. Don't see why that would be it now.

    I'm starting to get them pretty frequently now. It didn't start until a few days ago, but it's been fairly common since then. It's repeatedly happening in the Granger thread.

    ditto

    never happened to me before this week, and still doesn't always happen, but often enough to annoy

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Just had it happening in the Granger ASG thread.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Add me to the list as well. I get it mainly in the Granger ASG thread and sometimes in the Trade Deadline thread.

    I still suspect it has something to do with the auto-save feature. It seems to me that it's only happening in threads where it's auto-saved my text. It's as if it's trying to restore it yet it can't complete the process for some reason.

    Anyway, there's a temporarily fix, at least on my end: Disable javascript in your browser. This will disable the WYSIWYG editor and just give you a plain textbook to post in. It's a little bit annoying, sure, but if you're desperate to make a post it'll do the trick.

    Actually, here may be a better solution: Go to your General Settings page, scroll down to near the bottom of the page, where you'll find Message Editor Interface. From there, select the Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing option and then save your settings. That looks like it's fixed the issue for me.
