Trouble with posting...
TC2 - 10-10-2008 at 15:30

Hi there, I had trouble in posting under TC4W so I've made a quick new account to post this message.

I'm wondering whether it's got anything to do with the fact that I'm getting a lot of red 'x' s instead of links when I log in? Basically I use Windows XP silver as my theme instead of the standard user default, maybe that has caused something to go wrong?

I can log in okay and read every thread, but I can't post anything or open my control panel.

What can be done about it?

Thanks, TooCute4Words Now TC2

Are you having trouble with other forum you frequent?

Are you still having problems with the new ID?

Maybe Dot put your other account in the "time out chair?"

If that was the case, I'd have received a u2u from her saying so. Anyway, I haven't done anything wrong? Unless one of my jokes was taken as something different?

It's like you Redwolf, I know you're just a comical man and when you have a dig at myself and scholar, you don't mean it for real waveysmiley

Give it a go, it might be an indicator of general trouble with your 'puter.

1) Just logged in a few minutes ago on there and made a new thread, so thats okay and so's my computer..
2) I did u2u someone on here (KF) about my problem with the red 'x's but due to the rules of this forum, I can't say who I u2u'd or the content, but it has remained unresolved, however if I use the 'user default' instead of 'Windows XP silver' as my default/skin then everything is okay!!
3) I'm okay with this username TC2, as I'm posting right now and I can open my control panel okay, but I still have the red 'x' problem, damn!! :( That must mean it's impossible to use the theme/skin : Windows XP silver without having 'x' s against every link..

"IE" at the moment, but usually I always browse via AOL, even though I've been told by most here to ditch it :(

There may be settings in XP silver that are blocking certain file types. Try googling or the silver help forums.

All I wanted to know is why it was occuring?

1) Was it my computer?
2) Was it my username/account?
3) Would another member have the same problem if they tried it out?

Anyway, whatever it is I can live with the user default skin/theme, if the forum change has caused that to become a problem then so be it, I'll just adapt :)
