And another thing...anyone having problems with the "submit" button?

I’ve been trying to submit answers tonight, but nothing happens when I hit “submit”. :(

It has happened to me in Internet Explorer; switched to Firefox and everything works fine.

Might be your issue. Unless you’re using Firefox. Then I don’t know what to tell you :P

I had a problem just like this one in the recent past. I switched over to Internet Explorer 8 and after I did that, it wouldn’t show the preview of the answer I was typing and it would not submit my answers. After some looking around, I found a button on the top of the browser page (near the stop and refresh buttons) that told you to click on it so that the new browser could be compatible with older web pages or something like that. Once I clicked on it, it was just like before – you could see the preview of your answers as you typed them out and everything was submitted to Fluther when you clicked on the ‘answer’ button near the bottom.

Aha! I went to “page” at the top and added fluther to compatibility something or other. YAYYY! Thanks, y’all.

No, the submit button and I have been getting along pretty well tonight.

That’s tricky..I wouldn’t think it would have that problem since all Apple products are made of perfection and efficiency.

Tink's avatar

Well yeah it does that ;( (tear tear tear)

If it continues to give you problems just give it to me, I promise to give it a good home.

Ha no way never :)

Yes; but it’s nothing to do with the functionality of the site. :p
I’ve typed up multiple answers to people’s questions then deemed them redundant or pointless after re-reading them and never hit it.

Just watch, delicious irony will make nothing happen when I click it. ...

As I said in answer to a similar question, sometimes Fluther seems to like to go off in a corner and hum to itself for a while. If I go off and do something else for a while and then come back the submit button works just fine.

I figure it gets overwhelmed every now and then or goes off its meds and suffers a minor psychotic break.
