I recently installed IE9 and today when I tried to reply to a post, I couldn't. I was also unable to add a new post. I just installed Firefox and now I am once again able to reply to and post new posts.

Day after day as I try to remember, I find my forgetter working better and better.

hmmm – I assume you're referring to posting on this forum?

I think there is an update to this forum software (simplepress) that we have yet to install.  I'll check into it.

Chris,

Your assumption is correct. I should have been more specific about it being this forum. It just happened again when I tried to respond and when I posted, nothing showed up. I have just gone back to Firefox to post this.  Embarassed

Well – I didn't see any mention of IE9 issues in the Simplepress support.  But, I needed to upgrade anyway.  So, this is now the latest and greatest version of the SimplePress forum software.

Try it now and tell me what happens.  If you still get the same non-posting behavior … have you cleared your cache on IE9?

I am using IE9 to reply to your post. If you see this, it worked.

Just installed IE9 again.  Had it for a while in beta.  Seems better now.  Oops. Using RockMelt right now.  Next post with IE9.

No problem using IE9 to post this.  Not sure if the problem was with SimplePress.

Must have been because as soon as you updated, it started working. Smile
