Commenting Bug?

| 6 Comments

I’ve been running into a bug, and I’m posting this to see if anyone else has.

If I make a comment that is larger than the comment box, the “post comment” button vanishes, so the only way I can make the comment is to cut it, post the beginning only, then edit it to add in the rest.  Has anyone else run into that when posting long comments?  It doesn’t seem to happen all the time, and I haven’t figured out what conditions cause it.  Most likely, there is a really obvious thing I’m missing, but if anyone has any ideas, let me know.

  1. press tab to change fields, and that will scroll the box down so taht you can see the post comment button again.

  2. Happened to my long comment yesterdayish, hence the huge single paragraph, has never happened before that.

    Thanks, Jon! I’m going to test that right now by filling this comment in with crap just to make it longer.

    Blah blah blah. Blah blah balh.

    So, blah blah.

    Well, it hasn’t happened yet, I mean, the “post comment” button is still there. I’ll write a little more and see if that changes. Why am I not being paid for all of these words? Can I add them to my daily word count total? Well, yeah, I suppose I could, but it wouldn’t help get the book written, would it?

    There we go. “Post comment” vanished. Now I hit tab…and bingo! It worked! Thank you much, Jon!

  4. You’re welcome Steve 🙂

  5. It’s a real bug (been around for months for me), but as Jon says you can tab through to the form fields and post button.

  6. I’ve run into the same thing several times and had to cut the size.
