    Hi, folks. We've received a few reports since Monday that users are having trouble posting messages or starting conversations on Stratics Forums. In one case, clearing the cache and restarting the browser fixed the issue, but not in all cases. In another case, changing themes helped.

    We'll keep investigating the issue. If this happens to you, please give us all the info you can, including browser type and which theme you're using. Obviously, most folks remain unaffected, so we need lots of into to figure out the pattern. If you can't post this feedback, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the forums.

    One user was able to fix the problem by downloading the newest version of Firefox/Chrome.

    Using IE. Cleared cookies, ran virus and spyware scans, etc.

    Not sure what you mean by theme?

    My computer won't let me download IE8 (not compatible with Windows 7). Can anyone with this issue confirm they're using IE 8 instead of IE 9?

    Flexile Dark - Green thema did the trick for me. I don't like it, love uo classic thema.
    At least I can post now, also from my work, where I can't install Firefox.

    I'm sorry. This is so frustrating! Are you able to install IE9 at work, or are you stuck with an older version?

    As you see, it's the whole box to add a new message, that is missing.

    Yeah changing to Flexile Dark allows me to post again. But man is it ugly and now the page no longer fits my 22' screen (There's a left/right scroll bar at the bottom that I didn't have before)

    Flexile Dark Green seems to have just worked for me, but it's (no offense) ugly.

    Thank you FrejaSP!

    No offense taken. I agree.

    I dunno of the Class theme works, but you can actually choose your own color scheme, background pattern, and font.

    Still looking for solutions. Have folks at three external forums trying to brainstorm with me.

    I've replicated it! But I'm not sure what to do next.

    At stratics.com/community, in IE8, using these details:

    Username: testing123
    Password: testing123

    I can't see the quick reply box in certain themes. This is only in IE8. In Firefox 12, everything is working fine.
