Notice, still, a lot of trouble some of you who use AOL are having posting on this Board. Why this occurs, I don't know. It only seems to happen when posting a follow-up to a post already on the Board. Once again, to at least partially alleviate the problem ...
1 - Click on the "Post Follow-Up" link on the message you are responding to.
2 - ERASE all the information in the message field. This usually does the trick. Do this by highlighting all the text in the field by dragging your mouse over it and then hitting the "back space" key on your keyboard. The message field should now be totally blank and you can enter your reply.
3 - Click on the "Submit Follow-Up" BUTTON. This DOES NOT POST YOUR MESSAGE, it simply provides a "rough draft," if you will, to proof read. If there are errors, use the "Back" button on your browser to come back to the entry fields. If everything is OK, proceed.
4 - Click on the "Post Message" BUTTON. Done!
The important part here is to CLEAR the message field of all text BEFORE you reply to the post. TRY it!
