    I can understand your frustration. Let me see if I can help you out here.

    Which version of IE are you using?  And are you allowing cookies from

    Try adding the Forums site to IE's trusted sites list.

    Also, try removing the "." after your name in your Profile.

    Hi, thanks for the reply.  I'm using IE6 on SP3.

    Yes, MS Cookies are allowed and being stored.  (It would appear unfortunately that the Cookie from "" is what needs to be kept now.  I don't like having to keep such a Cookie on my HD.  Previously the Cookie from "" needed to be kept.  I guess that may have something to do with the recent forum outage and 'changes'....which I had hoped would be to fix the issues but it was not).

    The logging in problem is sporadic.  Just now I did not have to log back in.

    I didn't add any "." after my name anywhere.  That's something the site did.

    What about all the other site issues?

    Thank you again for replying.

    PS: this is ridiculous.  Now I can't even post this!!  I click "Submit" and nothing happens!  The "Submit" button becomes grayed out!  Then I click it again and I get the same BS in red: "An error occurred processing your request", which is showing up on my text here where I'm typing!
    God Bless

  • Clint,
    Are you able to use IE 7 (or FireFox 2)?  It appears IE 6 is having some CSS issues.

    Also, please go into your profile and remove the trailing "."   The system only adds Admin, MVP or MSFT after the name. 

    Hang in there, I'll try to get you up and running.   :)

  • I don't want to install IE7, but I do have the latest FF installed.  I put this URL in the Trusted Sites zone to see if that helps anything.

    I removed the "." in the Profile, I didn't know that could be done because I did it like that when I registered (someone else was already using my name).  So at least that much is fixed, thanks.  (But I don't know why it says "Clint D has not made any contributions to this application yet", when there are dozens of threads to which I posted, but at this specific forum area, fewer).

    Now the toolbar above where you type here isn't even working for italics.  Did you see that other thread I had to start?  Obviously I can reply now.  ;-)

    I just noticed some other odd things.  The right click context menu here now is back to the "normal IE" menu, it's no longer the special proprietary forum context menu.  And now that I look at it, I'm also showing a different toolbar at the top of the area where you type than previously.  Also, I cannot single space!  When I [enter] it's double-spaced.  And "Alert me" isn't checked by default, and it's supposed to be.

  • I don't believe this!!  Now I see my post DID INDEED get posted after all, and, TWICE!  Even though I got the errors to the contrary!!  I Refreshed the page TWICE, and I saw it got posted twice!  (I edited this one since it was a dupe of the post above).  Now if I get the JS error and "Submit" error again, I'll Refresh and see if that gets this posted.

  • I cannot "reply" to posts in the Windows 7 Networking forum, yet I can reply here.
    What am I doing wrong?

  • Hi,

    I was able to post a reply and start a new thread in Windows 7 Networking Forum.

    The forum is not locked so I'm wondering what behavior you're seeing. Hans is right too, if your creating a new thread make sure that you're have technet in the URL.


    You can post directly to it by this URL:
