    Re: Upcoming site upgrades

    I use Chrome.

    The only issue I have is sometimes I can't reply to certain posts. Says it has to have 3 characters.

Also, I put each bullet on a separate line but the change implemented rolled them up together in one paragraph, as if the "return" had not been entered between the lines.
    I'm experiencing the same.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Depending on your browser, you may have issues that are caused by newer browser changes and how it works with the forum software that we can't control.

    One possible workaround: If you press the spacebar before you reply, it might eliminate this error! Weird, I know, but it's a browser engine issue not playing nice with vbulletin 4x - we'll be updating later in the spring so should go away.

    let me know if this works for you.

    Also, this notice will appear just above the reply box depending on which browser you use when you are replying if we detect you are using a browser with the problem.

    NOTICE: We have detected you are using Chrome web browser. If the space bar does not work when entering text below press the Enter key (maybe once or twice) first and the space bar should work again. You may also change to the STANDARD editor in your TideFans profile settings.

    Sorry f I missed something but is the tool bar supposed to show up now? If so, it's not doing so for me. I cleared my cache too. I'm using Firefox on a W10 OS. Not complaining...just asking a question.

    This is my only real problem with the change as well so far. That bottom ad that's not quite a genuine pop-up (pop-in?) is very annoying for me. (on Chrome/PC)

    Using latest version of Firefox on Apple and the site is really acting up....trouble loading, ads bouncing around, etc. Just FYI -- thanks for all you do.

    I realize ads are revenue producing but I had those things with a purple passion. One of the reasons I don't watch regular TV -- ads, ads, ads.
