Posting frequently doesn't work RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    ever since the latest forums update, new posts frequently hang. What happens is that after pressing submit the loading / posting animated gif is shown infinitely, and the post never gets processed. In the previous version, there used to be a timeout after some time (showing a weird empty MessageBox, but anyway) and then one could either try to post again, or at least copy the text and save it for a new try later. In the new version, one has to reload the page and the post is irretrievably lost...

    Could someone please do something about it? It really frustrates me...

  • Hi,

    it just happened three times. If it works this time, it means that I had to close ie and try again.

    The error message I got from ie using the warning icon in the status bar was:

    Details zum Fehler auf der Webseite

    I wonder if that is really using  jquery?   Do you have any other jquery library in use normally?   I would try using the IE8 Developer Tools script debugger to check.   (F12, etc.)


    Good luck

  • I am curious, are you posting complex code snippets using the code editor? 
    Friday, June 11, 2010 7:27 PM
  • Hi,

    no, just normal text, not even formatting instructions.

    So far, after making the changes Vincenzo suggested, I haven't experienced the issue again, but I haven't been online very much this week. Also, I'd like to know why what I changed should help, especially because the problem was intermittent, and the changes seem to help against permanent problems, only.

    And also, I'd like to be able to revert the changes, because giving an unauthenticated website the "trusted" status seems unsafe to me... Could you give me some more information, please?

    Thanks,

    Hans

  • Hi,

    I don't do any jscript development at the moment, I don't have any other libraries as far as I know. So, unless some other site uses the same URL with different content (which would be weird, wouldn't it), there'd be no way a version conflict could exist. Also, I probably don't have the time to debug the problem on my end...

    Wait! Maybe I should clear the browser cache. I'm going to try that next...

    Greetings,

    Hans

  • Hi,

    after clearing the cache and reverting the changes to the options I made, the problem occurred again. It might be connected with trying to post before one signs in, then being redirected to the login page, and after logging in successfully trying to post again.

    Don't worry. The sites I advised to add to the IE Trusted web sites are safe, Microsoft URLs.

  • Hi,

    my original reply was eaten by the server again... the short of it: if I have to make those sites trusted sites in order to use something as normal as a forum application, I'd like to know why, and setting ANY URL as a trusted site is unsafe as long as the site doesn't use a certificate to authenticate itself.

    Anyway, thanks for the advice so far...

    Greetings,

    Hans

  • Hi,

    any news on this issue? It's still driving me up the walls, and I have almost stopped using MSDN forums because of it.

  • Just to let you know, I am also experiencing the same issues and have often given up on responding to users because I don't want to retype my whole response again.

    I usually only see this error if I take too long to answer a post, and a simple refresh allows me to respond, but today I do not seem to be able to post at all, although I have not added anything to trusted sites and, like you, don't see why I should have to given that I don't usually have problems with JScripts (I have posted quite a few responses in these forums and have never had to add to trusted sites before).

    p.s. I wonder if I'll be able to post this message ;)

  • Hi,

    after being offline for a couple of months, I just encountered the same problem again. It's five months now since I wrote about it for the first time. Is anyone taking this serious?

  • This COULD be a problem with cross site scripting.

    Try Firefox - on one of my pages I have the same problem...

  • Hi,

    well, I kind of expect to be able to use Microsoft's forums with Microsoft's browser without having technical trouble...

    It just happened again. I think I isolated the circumstances now: it happens every time like this:

    - I read a post before I signed in.

    - I click on the reply link before I sign in.

    - I am redirected to the login page

    - After I signing in, I am redirected back to the post and can write my response.

    - When I try to submit the response, the browser gets stuck just showing the submit animation, I am notified of the error through the error icon at the left edge of the status bar, and it is even impossible to select the text of the post in order to be able to post it again.

    - In order to be able to post again, I have to completely close and reopen the browser session, and to remember to sign in before I try to post.

    This problem did not exist in the previous forums release.

  • Hi,

    thanks for looking into that. This is just a test post, verifying if my old steps to reproduce the error still work...

  • Since the above post was accepted by the system, it seems to me, too, that the problem is fixed now.

  • Hi Ed,

    I might have been wrong in agreeing that the problem is fixed. After I posted the last reply to this thread, it happened several times that I looked at a thread in the hierarchical forum view, then logged in to write a reply, and when pressing the Submit button just saw a message box with the single word 'undefined'. I'm not sure that this is the same problem, however. Since I can copy what I wrote and try again after closing the message box, this is not so much of a problem.

    Also, I found out that I can work around this kind of thing by opening the thread in thread view before I post a reply.

    Regards,

    Hans
