On TQS you never knows what's going on. Lots of surprises :lol:

I don't know what's going on, but I just looked at my blogpost from a few days ago and noticed that now the photo is rotated sideways. What happened? It wasn't rotated yesterday or when I posted it. Something had to have changed in the system, because I didn't make this change.

I think the key is to keep whichever browser you prefer up to date. Some of them update automatically, sometimes they tell you when an update is available, but very often we just just have to search ourselves. With the many new features, programs and whatnot coming out in the cyber world every week, it's impossible for anyone to be up to date at any time. Very often an update or bug-fix inadvertently creates a problem in something that has worked encore. Finding the problems and fixing them takes time, and often creates new problems.


The cyber world is fantastic, but also contains as many options, tools and enigmas as the universe. Thinking of that, I'm generally happy that the phone actually lets me phone someone and the pc normally works well.

Oh yes, I scream,yell, stamp my feet and everything else too when it doesn't do what I want, half the time it's my fault for taking shortcuts that don't exist, the other half, a little patience, thought, and a good vocal emission also do wonders. ;)

It's really strange how things work .. or not. I'm using Chrome and had a problem with the Smilebox in a very short period of time. I think it was solved by itself and not by something I did

Nancy, I did not even want to load Firefox or Google Chrome, and in fact, I did not. I stayed with IE only all along. In the process of upgrading to IE 10, it would not allow me to load it until I added the patch, which it readily led me to. With that, I was able to regain all the capabilities Craftsy's system offers. Oddly, not having the upgraded IE never became an issue for me with viewing shows on TQS, despite all the problems others are experiencing here, and again, I don't know about the blog. Ironically, I only had a problem with Craftsy, but now that's solved too! :D I really do hope it helps, but, like Margo said, wouldn't it be nice... :wink:

I don't begin to understand how all this works, but I use Google Chrome as my browser and have not had any issues posting on the forum, but I haven't tried to post a blog in a while. The thing I have an issue with is that for some reason I can no longer view a SmileBox in Google Chrome. In order to see those, I switch to IE and it works fine.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if it all worked the way we want it to, without jumping through hoops??? :roll:

Don't know if this will help, but I was having similar problems on Craftsy last week. Since I don't do a blog on TQS, I can't speak to that. Craftsy suggested going to Google Chrome or Firefox (which I did not want to do, but I think I've seen Bob recommend that to a few folks here too). It turns out, in my case, I found a service patch for Internet Explorer that was not available when I bought my computer, so I added that and then upgraded from IE9 to IE10 and now all my functions are working fine. I offer this as perhaps another option to try, if all else fails.

Hi Renata,

I was just able to successfully add a blog post using Google Chrome, but like you, I do not want to use it as my default browser. So, I am going to try your solution.

If several people were having this problem, I don't understand why we were not all notified. I've wasted a lot of time trying to add a blog post.

Many thanks to you and Ritzy!!!

Funny you should mention Google Chrome. Just today, I had to download an update to Adobe Acrobat which with it Google Chrome tried to replace Internet Explorer as my default browser. However, I disallowed it, as I prefer to use IE--actually it's IE with my AT&T Yahoo skin.

I suppose I could use Chrome on the rare occasions that I want to post a blog. I'll let you know if that solves my problem.

Thanks so much!

Thanks Capt'n,

I just read that soon changes may be made to the Member Blogs, so this might not be an issue going forward.

I am unable to add a member blogpost. Once the title and body text is added, I click on the UPDATE button. Then my body text disappears and I get an error that says I must add body text. I had this problem several months ago and after multiple tries I just got very frustrated and gave up. Obviously some others are not having this problem, but I don't know what would have changed from when I was last successful adding a blogpost. I thought that whatever the problem was, that it would be fixed by now, but obviously it isn't.

Am I the only one having this issue? Any suggestions as to the cause of this problem?

I know that I can leave a message on Contact Us, but I hope I'll get a quicker answer here.
