    This is probably something simple on my end, but when I attept to use the format icons: "B" , "I" , "U" , "Link" , etc ... at the top of the "Post reply" box, I get: "! Error on page" in the lower left hand corner of the screen. Is it just me or are there issues with the site? Maybe there's an IE security setting that I need to change?

    Thanks

    OK, this blows! Apparently I'm the only one experiencing this problem.

    (image: "head banging smiley", "mad smiley" and "I dunno smiley", since I can't insert them.)

    I guess I'll have to do all my "vB Code" by hand. ~sigh~

    I really don't know why it's doing that for just you. I'll bump it on upward in the 'chain of monkeys' and see if we get any recommendations on fixing the problem..

    Thanks Brian. What's that saying: "given an infinate amount of time and a typerwriter, a hundred monkeys will eventually write . . . .".

    The only clue I have is that the bar at the bottom of "Internet Explorer" never says "Done" when I'm in the "reply to post" page. It just sits there stuck on: "Opening page http://forums.stangnet.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=4002474#...". If I click on any of the format buttons or smilies, it briefly states "Error On Page" with the exclamation point in the yellow triangle.

    All the other pages work fine. ie: They state "Done" at the bottom of IE when the page is done loading.

    Correction: Often the banner adds are blank and filled with statements like "Internal Server Error" and "action cancelled".

    You're not the only one having trouble. I tried to upload a post yesterday and it started to do it, then stopped and didn't continue. The post never made it. I also have trouble inserting smileys and haven't tried uploading any pictures yet, I don't want to go through all the hassle of formatting and loading all my software again.
