I composed a new topic for Speakers Corner earlier this morning. Instead of posting it has stuck wait, and has been thus ever since

What is the next move please?

I find that when this happens to me I highlight what I've written and in the pop-up menu click 'cut'. Then I come right out of the forum I was trying to post to, to a totally different forum. Then I go back, click and paste my original attempted thread and once again click on 'Post'. Long winded I know but it works for me.

Copy it then refresh the page, if it hasnt taken it put it in again.

I have been having this problem for a while.

I have done everything listed above to no avail. Sometimes it will take 3,4,5 attempts before a post is successful.

Thanks for the tips; I've had this problem several times since the overhaul - it says Please Wait and nothing happens no matter how long I wait - gave up in the end.

Anyone listening at PCA?

It has occured to me that I am having this problem with Safari on an iPad but on my main machine using FF4 I am able to post without problem.

What browsers are others having this problem using?

IE8

One difference between my Safari and FF4 is that FF4 has ADBlock running.
