Unable to reply to posts?

Has this ever happened to you? When I click on the "Reply" button, the entire posting does come up - under a large blue Fordor's banner, but no place to add a reply. I have tried several times and am able to reply to other posts and (obviously) been able to post a new message.

I really want to reply to this particular posting because it is an unusually long, detailed and specific post which will help me immensely.

Any ideas?

Are you sure it's not a thread that Fodors has closed? When they judge things to have gotten out of hand, are not travel related, political, offensive, whatever, sometimes they lock it so no more replies can be added.

I have an idea that sometimes when multiple people are trying to reply to the same thread at the same time the system gets "confused"

This can occasionally happened when the post continues a "long line" of unbroken text (i.e., free of spaces) - - have you scrolled far right?

Sometimes the "Post a reply" link is over there somewhere. Perhaps you could tell us what thread it is.

Best wishes,

Rex

If you are on AOL there was a problem with posting. Need to open it in another browser.

It's certainly not a political post!
Actually, every boring unless you are interested in this place.

Rex, click on my name and then it's the posting titled, "Castelgandolfo - Decisions?" or something very similar.

I am going back now to see if it works and check out to see if there is one very long line?

Thanks for the help.

It looks fine. Try scrolling to the far right. I've had this problem before and mistakenly thought that Fodor's locked the thread.

By that, I meant hit "Post a reply" and then go to the bottom of your browser and scroll to the very far right -- the box should be there. If not, then there could be a real problem.

This is the thread - - http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...2&tid=34540535 - - and it does have long unbroken text. You should be able to find the reply box by scrolling right.

Rex and 111op,
You are right - it was way over on the right. I never would have thought to look there.
Thanks for your help.
