Problem with melodicrock phpBB board: Scrolling problems

Postby Jonny B » Fri May 08, 2009 10:28 pm

Hey Andrew,

Not sure if other people have encountered this problem, but the scroller on the textbox which I'm typing in seems to be glitchy. If I'm typing a post, and I make said post longer than the textbox allows, the scroller appears, but for some reason, the scroller always defaults to the exact middle of the message. If I scroll up or down, or click the mouse to the text lower than the middle, it moves my cursor and the scrollbar back to the middle, and sometimes backl to the top. It's making it difficult to type longer posts when I can't see what I'm typing or deleting. So that said, is this a recurring problem with other people who use this phpBB forum, or am I the only one experiencing this problem?

Regards,
JB

I haven't experienced a problem like that yet. But I would recommend using word or notepad to construct longer posts and then C&P the post here. That way a board glitch won't wipe out an entire post. I had that problem a lot when the Boards were erroring all the time before Drew upgraded.

This is what I've been doing. I appreciate the temp solution, however. 8)
