I sometimes find when I'm replying to a post, and I click on the Portfolio Instant UBB Code that the Portfolio window does not pop up. I'll try several times, but it just does not pop up. What I usually do is to copy what I've typed, back out of the message, and then hit reply again, paste in my copy and then try the Portfolio link again and it then works. Has anyone had a similar problem? Is there any other solution?

Cheers,
rfs

RFS,

It happened to me this morning. I'd uploaded a picture to my port and wanted to use it in a reply to another post. I clicked and clicked on 'Portfolio' and....nothing. I ended up having to close my browser after going down the route you mentioned, re-opening it and going through the process again, and it was fine. I, too, copied and pasted the same text. It's the first time it has happened to me. Don't know why. Maybe it was overwhelmed by the beauty of Tina in the shot I was posting.

In the past it has happened to me and I always assumed that the server which has my GG port was overwhelmed at the moment. What I did then was forget it and just come back later and it worked. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Here are two possible approaches dependent on your specific situation.......

This happens everytime when I am using Mozilla's Firefox browser which is my regular browser. Do you use it? I presume that GG is not optimized to work with it. Whenever I want to post from my portfolio, I have to use IE. I have not discovered a way to fix this problem in Mozilla.

If you are using IE, it also may have something to do with pop-up blocking particularly if you have anti-adware software in place. Check both the browser's tools and the adware software (if in use) and make sure you are allowing pop-ups at least temporarily for GG. You can change back after you post. See if that helps.

regards

I use the latest version of ie6. I had thought about pop up blocking and have tried various states of turning off the one in ie6, turning off Google tool bar, turning off firewall (zone alarm or Windows XP firewall), etc. In other words I've tried various things when it happens to see if I can clear the situation and it only clears if I just back out of the post, and then come back into the post again. That makes me think its some sort of a state getting set in the programming on GG, but I have no way to test that.
Cheers,

That's a new one on me. I've never had that happen. One of the many mysterious of computers, I guess. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
