    well, nice to get a little customer service.


    Thanks for at least letting us know it's been noted.


    Are there any work arounds for various browsers???

    Tinman, the only workaround I know of is for posting messages via IE11 the way you found:


    It does appear you can post in IE11 on Windows if you add Boston.com to your compatibility view sites:

         They'll probably get around to fixing this in about the same time it gets you to travel back to Oz. Geez!!!

    Re: A WORKAROUND AND AN UPDATE FROM DEV

    The guys in the Red Sox forum found this workaround to get your posts to show up, but you have to use Internet Explorer:

    It's how I'm able to post now.


    Meanwhile, Dev has given me an estimate of 12-24 hours for a fix to be in place.

    If you are using XP, like me, IE8 is the last update for it. XP and IE8 are no longer supported

    I use Firefox as it is a separate company and is always updated.

    Re: A WORKAROUND AND AN UPDATE FROM DEV

    NMPL--


    I tested IE 8 (although from Win 7) and was able to post in here once I set the site to compatibility view and marked for getting latest sites from MS.


    The pages, however, even in the forum are horrendous and it takes a few moments to figure out how to use the forum pages.


    But, it did work.


    Uncertain that anyone with any other browser than IE can post at this time. Firefox (you?) and Chrome user are unable to post at all except using the headers.


     


    DOTTIE:  we're aware of that work around, thank you.

    Re: A WORKAROUND AND AN UPDATE FROM DEV

    The workaround came from a couple guys in the Pats forum actually (including Tinman).


    I posted the how-to link in the Sox, Pats, and Celts forums. :)


    But without Tinman no workaround would be around. :) Thx dude.

    thanks, but I can't take the credit.  Info came from TripleOG, actually.


    I just tried to get the word out around here, and get Dottie's attention, once I got moving on it.

    Right now it appears that posting can only be done using some version of IE with "compatibility view" set for this site.


    If you are using another browser, you can post short messages in the "headline" box, that seems to work for everyone right now.


    Otherwise, Chrome and firefox do not seem to work at all.

    Yeah, I have ran into a couple of state websites that have this same problem.  What a mess, I have no idea why it is so hard to have sites work with all browsers.  I have faith they will get it working soon.  Until then we have to use the clunky IE.

    I'd hate to be involved in the "post-mortem" (or if they are being stylish, the "retro") meeting on this project.

    Re: A WORKAROUND AND AN UPDATE FROM DEV

    TFB - bigger problem is lots of folks having trouble figuring this out for one reason or another so for now it's a pretty small convo :)


    But hey, we can kick it around.


    For example reports coming out Belichick has decided TB only has a few good years left and is planning to go after a big time receiver.  http://www.hngn.com/articles/29024/20140416/new-england-patriots-rumors-belichick-thinks-brady-s-window-closing.htm" rel="nofollow">http://www.hngn.com/articles/29024/20140416/new-england-patriots-rumors-belichick-thinks-brady-s-window-closing.htm


    Nice to know that BB is thinking along those lines, which is what many of us have wanted - though IMO a strong D will help Brady even more than receiving help...


    @Tinman I saw a post or two from TripleOG so props to him. It was your post I saw that mentioned the compatibility view. Bottom line the Pats fans came up with the workaround not the Sox fans so let's get that straight. :)
