Inability to post if someone has posted since last refresh

Post by HarryofOz » Fri Mar 02, 2018 8:49 pm

I'm not sure how to describe this issue.

But if you try and post and others have posted since you last refreshed the screen, your post isn't loaded and you have to submit again - and the issue is repeated if someone has posted a message since your last attempt.

I'm not sure why this feature exists, is there a way to turn it off?

Twas always the way.

If someone posts whilst you are typing it will show you the posts, allow you to edit and submit. I'm sure it can be turned off.

Cheers, not sure what others think. I just find it a bit of a pain, especially on match-day threads.

Harry raised this a while back but I have just worked out how to turn it off. I'm in favour of disabling and will do unless anyone has any objections. For clarity post review is...

If set to yes users are able to review their post if new posts were made to the topic while users wrote theirs.

Difficult one this, posts sometimes become irrelevant if someone posts the exact same thing seconds before or answers the same as you. It's a useful feature most of the time it's annoying matchdays when you hit post go back and watch some football then realise 2,3,5 minutes later your post didn't get by the system
