Many times when I post a message it is posting it twice.  It is happening both in discussions and in PMs.  Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem with the website?  Thanks!

Hi Barb,

Are you getting an error message when you post the first time?

Hi Rachel,  

No error messages.  I just see that it has posted twice when I check the post afterwards.

Hi Barb,

Thanks for letting me know that! Something on the site may be glitching out. Or you may be accidentally hitting the post button twice. But to be sure, I will look into it and have tech look at it too! Thank you for letting me know this!

Best,

QCA Rachel

Hi Rachel, I posted in "Report Issue" about my not being able to post in "Jokes/Inspiration" thread. but haven't heard back.  Can you look into that for me?  Thanks.

Hi Marie!

I cannot find the post (this is my fault, not yours!) Could you tell me specifically what's happening when you try and post to the forum? Thank you!!

Best,

Hi Rachel, I simply went to "Report Issue" and told them I could not post in "Jokes/Inspiration" thread.  As I always did, I highlighted and copied the item I wanted posted, went to the thread J/I clicked on "quick post" and I also tried "reply" on the last post there and then clicked on "paste".   All of it came up but when I hit "post" it never posted.  Hope this is clear.  Thanks so much for responding so quickly, your a gem!

Marie

Rachel, I tried to post the article here but it did the same thing as when I tried to post it in "J/I".  It was a Utube video, which I've been able to post in the past.

Hi Marie!

Sorry to be asking you so many questions! Were you trying to post the actual video in the forum or just the URL link?

Just the url link, Rachel.  Go to J/I and see that I got it to post and the reason why.  Problem solved!

Good morning, Rachel.  Any luck figuring out why some of my messages are posting twice?  Thanks!

Hm....I am a bit stumped on this one Barbara. Let me look some more into it. Could you walk me through exactly what you are doing when you post? (I know this sounds a little dumb, but it will help me out!) Thanks!!

Hi Rachel.  I don't think I do anything unusual so that's why it seems so strange!   After typing the message, I just click on "Post".  Sometimes when I check to make sure it posted it will be posted twice.  I've been very careful to only click once on "Post".  What I don't understand is why is will post twice sometimes and others only once!!
