All of a sudden I can't post an answer - just get 'please wait'.

Anyone else who's suffered found a solution?

Its Monday so probably doing some maintenance tweaking.

I have noticed that I keep getting logged-out though?.

Hmm, dod'y get logged out. Will see if this answer works!

Works! Could still do with an edit function to correct dreadful spelling after posting!!

Sometimes happens to me, but if I copy what was in my post, close the page, open up new, paste, then 'post', it goes through OK.

A bit 'messy' when it does happen, but easy to overcome.

Thanks spider - I'll try that if it happens again.

ps

FE has already explained why we will not get an 'edit' function. Personally I'm with him on the matter.

Oh? I missed that. It was one of the functions promised for the new look. I can live without it, but find it handy on other forums I frequent. Must make sure I re-read properly before posting!

I seem to remember that FE felt that allowing posts to be altered later might let alterations change the meanings, thus ensuring a never ending stream of arguing along the lines of "You said that, before you altered it later".

I also remember FE saying he would, himself, alter any obvious typos when he spotted them.

OK Spider, thanks.
