View Full Version : Reply Problems

05 October 2010, 1921
I am having trouble replying to posts. When i try to type in the text area, the whole thing highlights completely white so I can't see my font at all. I have to click somewhere else on the page to get the white to disapear so I can see what I typed.

I am using google chrome and a mac pc.

At work I have a pc with I.E. , works fine once I click the remove formatting button.

That does not work with my home computer.

Any thoughts?

Ditto....same complaint on IPAD. I can remove the formatting for IE on the PC, but on an IPAD running Safari, that option is not available. Makes it a royal pain to respond.

The same thing is happening here, I use Mozilla. I have to "switch editor mode" so that I can see the font I'm typing. I don't think it your computer.

I'm glad this is happening to you guys I just figured there was some button I accidentally pressed . I've been typing in word and then pasting in.

Looks like some of the CSS got messed up recently. :(

Me too, on Firefox and IE under Windows, and Dolphin under Android.

Sorry, trying to change the chatbox background color. I affected the wrong box apparently.

Are you talking about the Quick Reply box that you type in?

Yes sir. It's in the quick reply and in the advanced reply, too. The text box becomes very light gray and the text is white. Almost impossible to see.

It is different to the other day when the reply box turned white, now it's more of an ivory so you can 'just' see the white text.

edit :Beat me to it Harry!

Mike, the quick reply box for now is now a pretty light grey with white text. It's still kinda difficult to read.

I had the same problem, which started last week, so I started pushing virtual buttons and managed to find the "default" setting in a box at the lower left-hand corner of the screen. Now my screen is white with black lettering and pastel green bars separating the posts, much more like the other three message boards that I visit. I am a happy camper again. Before that I was going crazy - and blind, too.

Ted, I can see your bike, but not your butt.

Wow, it's really bright in here now, I need my sunglasses. I can get used to this. The reply issues seem to be solved. Thanks!
