    Hi again Gurus. These are 2 problems which are bugging me:
    1st: I can't seem to find out why I can't see "Comment" in the Admin Only section that is in all other normal posts.
    * This is in normal posts for all memmbers.

    * This is in Admin Only section.

    2nd: This is popping up all the time when members are typing posts. I don't know why or how to fix it.

    I'm not sure about the 1st error but you might want to check which browser the user is using for the 2nd error. If it's Safari it's a common error. Did you manage to upgrade yet?

    Thanks zappaDPJ. All different browsers, that's why I think it may be within vbulletin. We can't upgrade as yet (I would but I'm not the owner).

    I think it probably is. When that error occurs has anyone checked to see if the post has been made? i.e. refresh the page.

    It happens randomly while you are entering text in a post. You have to click OK, click back into the post and you can keep on typing. It's just annoying. It happens even after a page refresh.

    Unfortunately he cannot do that because he's not the owner of the site.

    Well then he needs to talk to the admin of the site. If you are running below 5.2 there where all sorts of issues.

    We use version 5.1.2 and unfortunately am unable to upgrade at this time as I am not the owner. The owner is hard to contact and this makes it difficult as you can probably appreciate. I guess we'll just have to put up with the bugs for now. Thank you for your efforts.

    Have them update to the latest version (assuming they have the correct PHP and Mysql/Maria db versions to support), they will resolve so many headaches by doing so.

    Thanks Craigles700. I will pass all of this on to those who pay the bills and await their reply. I wrote a program many years ago and it still sells to this day. I do all bug fixes and upgrades and DO NOT charge for it as I think it is my duty to have a good product that works as it is designed to do. I think software companies are the only protected species who can sell any garbage they slap together and if it does not do what they say it will do, it must be my fault. If they fix a problem, they have the audacity to charge for it. If it was Epson, Ford, GMH, Rolex or Tupperware, it would be replaced with something that works as it should. I'm going on I know, but why is it that software companies are the ONLY companies which are not forced to repair or replace their products if they are faulty? I've asked this on many occasions (even to Governments) and to this day I have not had a response that is even worth reading. Cheers and have a great day, Greg :)

    That usually means there was a php error or warning in the ajax response when you/they posted.

    Its almost certainly been fixed in later versions, until you can get the site upgraded, you will continue to get these issues.
