I'm trying to reply to a post in the earthbag forum but when I "submit" it says "saving" briefly and then reverts to where I am typing my reply. And the reply does not show up on the thread.

I was trying to reply to the thread that was titled load bearing for earthbag walls or something like that.

Thanks

Is it possible to post a link to the thread you are trying to post in?  It will help us discover what is going wrong.

Hmmm, I can't see anything wrong with that thread.

I wonder if they were doing an update on the server at the time you were trying to post.  Can you try again and report back if it's still broken?

Another thing to try is to clear your browser history.  

While you do, I'll keep investigating.  But those are the two easiest solutions.

Yes, I tried to post several times yesterday and then again this morning.

It still says "saving" for a couple of seconds and then reverts back to where I'm writing.

A couple of times it reverted to the login page as well so I logged in again but had the same issue when I tried to submit my reply.

I noticed that it took a surprisingly long time for my responses to this thread to post as well even though my device is showing full signal strength. Maybe 20 seconds or so before it completed.

Don't know if that would be related.

Thanks

I've made maybe 6-10 posts this way in the past without problems. Until yesterday.

okay, we're beyond my troubleshooting capabilities.  I'll check with the IT people.

Any more information you have would be useful.  We appreciate you taking the time to report this.

sometimes a browser "goes stupid".  Try a different browser.  If the problem still happens with a different browser, that tells us a lot.

Also, very important, is this the exact thread you are trying to post in?  https://permies.com/t/91569/Load-bearing-strength-earthbag-walls

Yes that is the exact thread I'm trying to post in/reply to.

I'll try a different browser when I get home

Thanks
