My question is....
When I post a reply, should I use the top set of links or the bottom set?
The reason I'm asking is it seems when I post, it doesn't show up after it says it has recreated the page. So I post again, sometimes it works for me then other times it doesn't. What am I doing wrong? I just didn't want to create a bunch of duplicate posts if the screen will refresh at a later time and update and show all those where I thought nothing happened.
Confused,

Happens to me all the time. I go to the page immediately and refresh and it shows upright away (so I can see my mistakes and fix them). Or you can leave the topic and go back in, and it shows up.

Thanks JimsZ,
Like you said, I went back a few minutes ago and there it was, a duplicate of the post I didn't see posted. Oh well, I'm new at this, so maybe you all will over look my ignorance for a little while yet. I sure have enjoyed reading and learning from all the postings already out there on the forum and the many threads that have answers to the questions I have. The guys/gals all seem to be very eager to share their knowledge of these great cars that GM produced. I took my 70 RS/SS out lastnight "after" dark(inspection sticker has run out) for a spin and stretched it's legs and filled her up with some fresh 93 octane. I couldn't hardly see out the windshield due to a years worth of very fine dust that made it's way through the car cover.
Take care,

BTW, nice car you have there under the little camera.

Try this. Just assume the post got through. This Board has very reliable software, so it will be there.

The problem is the browser on your computer. The newer versions of IE do a trememdous amount of caching, so when it returns you to the page, your computer is simply reloading the old thread from your hard drive instead of the new one from Madmike's board.

You get around that by holding down F2 and clicking refresh on IE. Your new reply should then show up.

Hi Gary,
Don't get me wrong, I hope you didn't think I was speaking bad about the forum. That's not it at all, I just don't know what I'm doing most of the time and was looking for some help. This has been a great source of info and a place to run my crazy ideas by some professionals to see if they are feasible or not before I do something stupid and mess up my car in some way. I appreciate the way everyone seems eager to jump in and help where they can. I participate in another forum where everyone is curteous and helpful, it makes for a great online experience with people who share the same passion for what you like.
http://aws.org has a BBS run very much like this one and people are respectful and won't tolerate a lot of balony. Misunderstandings will happen when there is only a typed sentence in front of you and you can't see the person's expressions, I only hope that I haven't came across that way to anyone here. My humor sometimes gets construed and doesn't get taken as I meant it to be.
Take care,

------------------

No offense taken. Computers just work like this , but using the F2 key and a refresh should get you around it. This is a common problem that others here have also seen, and for most of them, this was the simple solution. If it doesn't work for you, post again, and someone else will probably have the correct answer.
