Update:
  • The number of replies are now visible again to users who aren't logged in.
Spell checker in Firefox issue:

If you are using Firefox and the browser's spell checker is not working when you are writing a post then the following should fix it:
  • Right-click within the editor
  • Select "Languages" and select "English / United States" or your preferred language
  • Make sure "Check spelling" is also checked
Usually this is done automatically however in some modern versions of Firefox this needs to be explicitly selected when using certain editors, once you have done this once you shouldn't need to do it again to keep the spell checker functioning on this site.

Saru - Am utilizing FF, latest version, latest updates. Cannot seem to locate "Editor", even after hitting "preview post".

Suggestions/applicable screenshot?

Thanks,

Swede

By editor he means the text box that you make your post in. It doesn't actually say editor. Just right click where you would normally start typing your post and follow his additional instructions. Takes all of 5-10 seconds to get spell check working again.

Get three coffins ready.

My mistake, four coffins.

I'm having two issues as a mobile site user... one... I cannot go directly to the last page of a these. Games section is where this is mostly necessary for me. A couple random threads its important also.
And two. In chat every time a person posts or a new line moves up it kicks my cursor to the beginning of the box when I'm typing. Most distressful... sometimes I don't notice that I'm writing at the beginning again. Please help if you can.

This is a real lame work around, but you could type your message in a text editor and then copy/paste it into the chat window until the root problem is fixed.

Hey boon I appreciate the response. While that would suffice for the moment I don't think its worth the effort. I tried going in there again and the cursor jumped while saying my first line...  hello... it came out as elloH... I think I'm done using it until someone can fix it. Though I don't know if they are planning on it or not.

I just jumped into the chat room and I didn't experience what you are describing.  I wonder if it might be your web browser or something else?  I'm using Firefox.  What web browser are you using?

If you are using IE, you may want to enable compatibility mode, for UM at the very least.  I recall having similar issues when I was using IE and found it very frustrating until I enabled compatibility mode.

Cheers.

I've just noticed something else. If you reply by quoting something, it seems that you can't attach attachments, you can only do that by replying without quoting. This seems to add unnecessary inconvenience.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

After quoting click the [More Reply Options] button and you'll be able to add attachments.  :)

What boon said - when you click "quote" it's still using the fast reply box at the bottom of the page, to add an attachment you need to be using the full editor which can be accessed by clicking "more reply options" or via the main "reply to this topic" button at the top right.
