    We’ve made a few technical changes on the Forum.  Do the posting problems still exist?  Are you having a problem posting.  If so, what Forums allow you to post and what Forums don’t?  Thanks.

    I haven’t encountered a posting issue lately but there is still an issue with uploading profile pictures. I have been unsuccessful uploading my picture but I was able to upload a pic of a freaking cookie from my phone. Maybe there is a file size limit or something? I’m good with the cookie for now.  😉

    I believe that you’re correct about the file size limitation but I couldn’t find the specs.

    I tried to post a topic in the software section and it looks like it didn’t post.

      I borrowed your account to see if I could post in software.  I was able to with no problem.  Let me know if you experience this again.  To borrow your account I had to change your password because I don’t have access to the one you created.  I’ll email the new password to you and you can immediately change it to keep me from impersonating you.  Do it quick because I’m tempted.  lol

    This is my first post. I have tried to create a profile pic but when I go to crop it or view it, it disappears. I’m sure it’s better to see who your communicating with 😀

    Any ideas ?

      Perhaps the file size is too large?

    I still can’t post anything on the equipment forum.

    Cheap Guitars (with some exceptions) play just about as good as expensive ones. It's your ability combined with an awesome amp that makes the difference.

    I’m going to test your account.  To do this I must create a new password.  I’ll send the new password to you in a couple of minutes.

    I just sent you the new password.  I signed in as you and posted to the Equipment Forum and included a link.  Everything worked fine.  I recently updated to a new version of WordPress.  May have solved your problem.

    I got a strange box popping up last night and filled out some information. I remember typing “Well this is new…” in the comments section.

    I just tried to post a link to a facebook picture. It still won’t let me. I input the new password you sent me and then changed it to a new one> neither time it would let me post.

      You had two other things that you mentioned and I tested them out. 1) Couldn’t post to the equipment Forum.  I was able to.  2) You couldn’t post a link.  I was able to.  I’ve never tried posting a Facebook photo.  Just tried.  I was able to post the link but I have no idea how to post a Facebook photo.

      Okay I can post links now and I was able to post a pic as an attachment in the equipment forum. What I was referring to the Facebook photo was simply the image address posted as a link to the picture which it will still not let me do. I am happy that I can post attachments because as of two days ago I still couldn’t.

    Doug,

    I have been able to post replies (most of the time) to other people’s posts but the other day when I tried to create a new one in “other” it never appeared on the forum.

    I was going to try a post tonight, so we’ll see what happens.

    I may have found the problem.  Our spam blocker includes an “allow list”.  When you receive the strange pop up it’s because the spam blocker has noticed something unusual about your post.  One of the things that I’ve noticed is, when you originally subscribed your ip address was recorded.  People having a problem are posting from a different ip address than the one that we’ve recorded.  I just created an “allow list”.  Everybody that has posted here was just added to the allow list.  If the problem continues, fill out the pop up, it will show me your new IP address and I can include it in the allow list.

    Here’s information about the popup form.  When you see it please fill it out and you will be added to the allow list.  Just to be sure that you’re covered please bring this to my attention because I need to manually approve your request.  Here’s the info:

    Stop Spammers — Allow Requests

    When users are blocked they can fill out a form asking to be added to the allow list.

    Okay Doug, I just wrote a post about your Maximum Benefit from Guitar Lessons newsletter in “Other”. I hit submit and it took me to the list of posts in “Other” but my post isn’t there. Exactly what happened last time.

    No popup happened either, by the way.

    I can’t make long posts. Maybe that’s good?

    FYI if the stop-spam is monitoring IP’s, then for cell phones or tablets posting with a data plan, those mobile IP addresses are sometimes the same but will change later (especially might change during peak network usage hours). Sometimes across big domain number ranges. So it could seem like things are working for a while, then later on suddenly does not work.

    To track this, it would probably be good for all to make note when complaining, to explain if you’re using a home computer or phone/tablet.

      Good idea… I was posting on my home laptop about Doug’s newsletter to night that did not appear.
