I get it a lot on an android phone, but not on desktop. Dunno if its just that editing using the phone is so inefficient and time consuming. What sometimes works for me is to open up another tab onto the YY forum and use the back button on the original and try and repost.

This is definitely the timeout issue.

You read a thread, you press 'REPLY' button...you then have 20 minutes to write your text and press 'POST'.

It is part of the anti-spam measures built into this forum. The software was not created by the Y&Y team; it is a third-party (highly popular) tool we purchased.

I have tweaked it here and there though. I'm not sure if it is possible to increase the time period.

I've made a subtle improvement now, to shrink down a photo if someone is 'quoting' someone else's post.

So the first time you see a photo, it will be big...then later on, when repeated, it will not hog the screen so much.

I believe I have fixed the issue. Hopefully Safari will now display huge images to you, as it does to me.

Hope I haven't broken things for other people in the process....

Aha - I can now see the error on my Mac Mini. This means I am not working blind.

I will try to fix it...

That's one possibility, but what's with the large post display or lack of it..

Yes, probably your connection timing out. Best tip is to write your post in Notepad or Word or something on your pc/device first if it is long then paste it in.
