Problem with Previews?

Folken FanelFolken Fanel anime afWhen's KoFRegistered User regular
Not sure if this has been addressed somewhere already, but the strangest thing has been happening lately. I'll start a post, then preview it, then continue the post and preview again. At this second preview, my sig disappears and if I hit submit, my post goes up but with no sig. Its a small thing I know, but I just thought I'd point it out.

    Do you have "always attach signature" checked in your profile preferences, or do you activate it manually?

    Does this remove my signature?

    Still appears after first preview.

    Still appears after second. There's an "Attach Signature" check box in the options below the text box, does it become unchecked for you?

    I get this also, running on Epiphany (Gecko engine, like Firefox). It seems that there are two different preview pages, one with the thread preview above, and one with it below. The one with the thread above doesn't have an attach sig box option. If I keep clicking "Preview", the normal one comes back eventually, but the "Attach signature" box is unchecked.

    Why are there two different preview templates?

    Just confirmed this, running Safari 2.0.4.

    Hmm, works for me with IE 7.0. Have you tried clearing your cache?

    I can duplicate the problem in Opera 9 on my Mac. Try hitting 'Preview' a few times, it'll happen.

    Do the forums run behind a load balancer of some sort? Perhaps one of the servers has an old version of the preview page.

    Yeah, I was able to duplicate it in Firefox 2.0 by hitting preview about 20 times.

    I'll take a look and see if I can't get rid of it without some major surgery.

    I was able to duplicate it as well. Interestingly, it then switched over to mostly hiding the box, though it would occasionally reappear but be unchecked.
