Not sure why I’m having an issue and I did not see a help fo so I’m asking here. If this is inappropriate please remove.

I can’t seem to post from my phone. I have a smart phone (Samsung Electrify) and I don’t have any issue with any other fo or site. Has anyone got a clue as to what’s going on?

It will let me select to reply but after I type and when I hit submit it takes me to a new posting page that is again blank and no reply is posted..


Thanks!

First I’ve heard of it. The software behind this site is very old, so theoretically it should work with any browser, though we have had intermittent problems with losing posts, particularly from Internet Explorer.

Okay, thank you!

You might look into getting an iPhone or an IPad. The tablets are less expensive.  I have never had a problem posting with my iPad (not the newest or best version). I use it only with WiFi. Maybe the problem is your phone server.  Some friends have had problems with servers.

Assuming it is an Android Smart phone, you can try other browsers. There are many:

- delphin
- firefox
- opera
- chrome

AFAIK they are all free. Download them from Google’s play store. (for security reasons not from anywhere else!)

It could also be some setting of your browser (privacy? cookies?).
