KK, I seem to have lost all ability to quote posts, start threads or send PMs!

I'm using the "quick reply" feature but I think someone's been messing with my privileges!

PS: Is it the same situation in every forum? or just perhaps one or two specific ones?

Umbo - please can you try one thing for me.  Go into the forum 'Who's who around here?' - and see if you can do all those things from there (quote / start topic / pm etc)

All your privileges seem to be working. Looks like an overall 'Permission' thing for each individual forum.
I might have done something when adding the new sub-forum 'Movie of the Week'.

If any other member is experiencing the same problems, please post in the Shoutbox.

Meantime, I will have to go through each forum individually and check the permissions.

I think I may have fixed the problem now.  I will move these posts to the 'Information &  Help Desk' forum and head it 'Posting Problems'.

Umberto - If all is working OK for you now, can you please reply in the new thread (this one) and mark the topic as 'Solved'.

No, it's still not working for me.

I'll try a few forums to see whether it's a global setting or forum specific.

I've just logged in with a different browser and all is OK.

It must be my Firefox settings that's causing the problem - ad blocker or something.

Yes, it was my ad blocker.

I've reset it - but now I have all that unwanted scrolling text etc. Sad

The scrolling text can be immobilised - but what is the "etc" that is unwanted?

PS: I don't think it was your computer or browser that was causing the problem. Since you brought this issue up, on checking it would appear to have been something that I set off when I created the new sub-forum for the Movies. I went through every forum individually, and found that certain permissions were indeed disabled -for ALL members there! I have rectified all that now - so you're probably okay going back to Firefox - and AdBlock. I use Firefox and I have AdBlock enabled, though it's not needed on Krazy Kats, as I have it set to 'No Ads' from the administrative centre anyway. (I pay a minimal sum annually for this, also for our own toolbar (up top).

This would actually explain why no-one else has been posting on here for last few days! If you hadn't pointed it out, I would never have known there was a problem.

Can this thread be marked as 'solved' now - or are there still issues?

I'm fine now.

I first had problems when trying to respond to a quiz a while back so a board change might have kicked in then.

All working now though - including flashing graphics, scrolling text....

QUIZ OF THE WEEK has been moved to THE PLAYGROUND section.
(Sorry ... I should have left a marker saying where it's moved to)

    Current date/time is Thu 27 Jul 2017 - 23:42
