Please Wait . . .

  Covergirl 13:29 PM 08 Jun 11

I'm still getting Please Wait after clicking the Publish button. Perhaps it's the bandwidth as all external sites are throttled back.

Just happened again so if you see 2 or 3 threads on GYO Mushrooms, don't be suprised.

By the way, I've identified the problem and solution in my own mind.

You'll invariably get it if you spend too long writing a response or creating a new subject.

Solution - write your response in notepad or similar and paste into this box, do the formatting & links and click Publish quick !! Or Copy the text before you click publish - if it doesn't publish, bomb out and start again.

Doesn't happen very often but I do the copy and paste when it does.

When it does it with safari, a few times it has made safari close and an error appears

It is annoying when this happens

I find that refreshing the page gets rid of the 'Please Wait' and then I can click on Post and it does it straight away. Don't lose the text I've typed in the box either - although I do take the precaution of copying it just in case ;)

The site can be is more problematic with Safari on a Mac or iPad but I have no problems with the site with FF4 on my iMac

I have FF4 and Opera 11 as well but I find that I am mostly using safari as I find it the quickest

  bremner 22:05 PM 08 Jun 11

I only use FF4 for this site as it outperforms the other browsers [for this site] and does not cause problems.

I use Chrome and most of the time it's ok
