[2022-01-05] Please clear your browser cache if experiencing trouble with Advanced Post Editor

Hi everyone,

I had the site offline for about an hour while I worked on some routine security maintenance. You may notice a change in the Advanced Post Editor, which needed to be updated.

NOTICE Please clear your browser cache if you experience trouble with the Advanced Post Editor not loading. This should only be necessary once.

If you notice any new issues please post here.

Thanks for your patience! Have fun.

I cannot post in any thread using Chrome.

I can post with Firefox, but I prefer to use Chrome.

 

EDIT:

I closed Chrome, ran CCleaner, opened Chrome, got a few errors on BLF, and now I can post on BLF in Chrome again.  :-)

(If I get the error again, I'll post it in this thread.)

Nope on both counts.
Firefox has more features.

I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of clearing your Chrome cache. For me it works normally in Chromium. But I'd appreciate it if other Chrome users could let me know if they're experiencing any problems.

I would test BLF on my other computer, but I'm running Memtest86+ on it right now, and that program takes forever to test RAM.

(Some of my RAM is bad, and I need to figure out which sticks of RAM to replace.)

...

I'll test out BLF on my mom's laptop in the meantime.

I had that happen on an old computer, took a long time to figure out it was the RAM because it was very intermittent.
I tell you being down to 32MB (yes MB) of RAM was no fun even way back when.

So you have my sympathies Beer

Thanks, appreciate it. It’s probably only going to cause trouble on a browser that was already using the old version of the Advanced editor. Still not sure why Chrome wouldn’t clear the cache, but that’s the issue.

Okay, I'm on my mom's laptop.

I had to run CCleaner to be able to post on BLF using Chrome.

I did not get any errors like on my laptop, so that's good.  :BEER:

...

By the way, when I could not post on BLF, I couldn't post with Advanced Post Editor, Simple Post Editor, or Plain Text.

Had you recently used BLF on that laptop and browser?

It took me a while to figure it out for me too.

My desktop computer would give me Blue Screens of Death every day or two.

I tried lots of fixes, and even tested RAM while running Windows, but I was told by Windows that my RAM was fine.

So far, Memtest86+ has done at least two passes, and has found lots of errors.  :!!!:

I won't know how bad it is though until I stop Memtest86+'s test, and I'm not going to do that until I get up tomorrow.

Speaking of which, it's almost my bedtime.

If i remember correctly it was a process of elimination for me but windows would BSOD spontaneously in those days anyways so that made it harder to track down.
I had an HP hand me down blow a ram chip but i forget how but i figured it out quickly.

My main rig uses a good brand of RAM so no failures in the last 8 years on it, fingers crossed.
But Windows 8.1 is dead in 2023 so i will need a new computer then.

My desktop is overclocked, so I have to use very good RAM.

I've had it almost twelve years, though I did add more RAM to it about two years ago.

I won't know which RAM sticks are bad until tomorrow.

You don't like Windows 10?

It's very similar to 8.1

And W11 is very similar to W10.

No overclocking on my end.

Windows 11 on a 10 year old (by 2023) computer is not going to run very smoothly.
That said no previous computer of mine has lasted this long.

Depends on the computer's components.

My gaming desktop will be twelve or thirteen years old next year, and I'm sure that it'll run W11 just fine.

There is a workaround to install W11 on old computers, though I don't think I'll be able to get updates.

I have a i7 4770K, 16GB Ram and so forth. Top of the line at the time.
Its fine for now but i am noticing some slowdown running modern software.

I prefer simple and updated so i plan to upgrade the computer once the updates for Win 8.1 run out.

Advance Post Editor is working fine. This is one of the few sites that go well with my FF.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

The Advanced Post Editor didn't work for me on Chrome either.

How I fixed it:

  1. Right click anywhere on the page, click on Inspect (If you don't see that then click the 3 dots in the very top right of Chrome and go to More tools, Developer tools)
  2. Go to the Network tab
  3. Check Disable cache
  4. Reload the page
  5. Go to the Advanced Post Editor and check it works
  6. Un-check Disable cache and close the web inspector
