Hi, huge glitch just started affecting me this afternoon while trying to update a thread. It seems that the post cuts off about 75% of what I submit. Any ideas why?

Did you add in any HTML or less/greater than signs? Anything after those will usually be cut off.

There is another way around the greater than / less than signs: If you type out & gt; (greater than) and & lt; (lesser than) without spaces, it should show up as the symbols. If it does work:

Result: @jeol: I tried to quote your post to let you know that it posted and to test the opposite, but only the quote posted, and only to the first greater than sign. How did you post both signs then the way you did if my quoting of it gets cut off?
