The options menu at the bottom right of a post which allows one to bookmark, edit, etc. is showing as an open menu transparent, over the post. See Attachment called untitled (I'm HOPING there's an attachment called untitled since after I hit upload, iVillage is kindly telling me that: "The file referenced by the Upload a File field does not exist."!). When this aberration occurs, the posting box options are seriously limited. For example, the WYSIWYG format, shown in untitled 2 (which I will have to upload in ANOTHER post to this thread, since the upload a file box is now disabled and only "Remove" seems to be active...) has no option to disable or enable rich text and no tool box... I CAN post, but only using filtered html or plain text. I MUCH prefer using WYSIWYG with rich text disabled so I can edit the code I am posting by switching back to rich text. KWIM? P.S. It also means I can't edit a post because it insists on forcing me into the non-working WYSIWYG box where everything is now shown as CODE! And I can't insert photos... because there is no tool bar... And... And... And... Oh, and the entire page seems to believe I want to provide a summary, a shadow copy, and a explanation for any editing to "help other authors understand your motivations." HUH??? This has happened before and no-one has had an explanation to date. Any hope for one now?

OOOPS! I spoke to soon! The editing is back but... everything I posted yesterday and the day before is GONE, reverted back to the previous week's posts. And I had NO WAY to reclaim it! DRAT! This happened in two threads --- Quilting, where the OP for that thread became the thread for the week before, and in Sewing where not on ly the OP had reverted to a week ago but the second thread was blank!

So... I posted an apology to my boardies about losing two days of tips and links by editing the blank post, posted the apology and what do you know, the missing links were back in place of the apology!

What on earth is going on here? Every day, a new "glitch!" No two the same! No two solved in the same way. No wonder poeple have left (I truthlfully can't say are leaving as it is definitely past tense) in droves...

Oh, a partial solution for this glitch --- cancel the edit on both threads. Go back to the oroginal post, open it again --- and again if necessary --- and eventually the right post will appear from somewhere. Well, it did for Quilting but not for the OP in Sewing... Whether it will stick, is, of course another issue but...

Hi, Happy --

I think the fine line here is that if I don't have any information to share, I don't want to leave anyone thinking we're ignoring them; I definitely don't want that to be a concern, so it's preferable to at least respond so that you know there are eyes and ears here on the community, even if I don't have any information.

I'll pass along your feedback to the Director. If I get any details otherwise, I'll come back and post them.

Have a good day..

Donna

Ugh, Carol, I'm sorry. I'm passing this along as well.

Oh, it gets worse! EVERY thread I had edited between January 6 and January 8 reverted to December 30... EVERY thread. That means Embroidery and Yarn as well! That means an two days of work --- and you have NO idea how long it takes me to put together those lists of tips and post them with reference to the thread where they will eventually be parked. I had set up this system since I couldn't use search to find threads and trying to find the right thread every day was getting to be even more time-consuming, but this is worse... At least I didn't LOSE links the rotten search way...Yell
