I'll let Troy know. I know I've been hitting some real slow spots off and on today!

I have been noticing something that has been different in recent months. For years when I received an e-mail about a new post, the link used to take me to 'that' post. Now, it takes me to posts much earlier in the thread instead of the post that triggered the notification. I thought maybe it was a thing that only affected mobile devices or iOS, but the same thing happens on a PC.

I sure wish the Forum had an app.

Can you provide me with a copy of a link you're clicking on that isn't taking you to the spot you're expecting? Feel free to forward the message to my email or PM it to me.

Thanks,
Troy

I have another gremlin to report. :-( when on a PC, I like to type longer posts in MS Word, and then paste them into the box. Today, however, when I hit 'preview' or 'submit', it tells me there are too few characters and all my pasted text is gone.

I hope this is not permanent, I would really miss being able to use word processing to put my posts together.

We haven't changed anything at all on this end. If this problem just started all of a sudden for you today, then it seems like it could be a bug in your web browser. I would suggest closing it down and running it again to see if that helps.

Nope, no dice. Even using a different browser, tried pasting from notepad and sticky too.

Do you think Win10's latest :cuss: date messed things up? :swear:

Just tried copy 'n paste and it works fine. Windows 10 with latest update.

Maybe it got a VIRUS ? It seems to be the thing of the time.

Look into downloading Grammarly, it's what I use. It auto checks everything and the working page is browser based.
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.
