The server time shows as being 19 April a little after 8 am and the local time is after 9 am, but my birthday is still in upcoming status. I wonder when it will update?

In case some of you are experiencing the same thing with Internet Explorer:

At work, the only browser available is IE (not sure which version, may not be the most current). That browser prevents me from posting anything, including PM's. Then, I cannot "cancel" the post unless I page back or click on a page link. It must be a browser issue because my Google Chrome browser at home works fine. 

FYI, Joe is aware of it and will look into it within the next few days or so when time/resources allow. In the meantime, thanks for your patience.

Thanks are fixed. I've reported the @mentions issues - hopefully they'll get sorted soon.

I've been @-ed twice today. I only got a notification for one of them. Very strange.

@Ahhh Girl There was an update to the @Mentions plugin which I've just applied. Hopefully things are back to normal now.

It looks like this about once every 3 times a new page loads.

Everything still works, in fact I'm posting this from a half screen. But it is odd.

WHen I try to paste on mobile it tells me to use the keyboard shortcuts, which can't be done on mobile. Any way around this?

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Update on the half page thing, everything's squished into the left except the pictures of George and Ringo in the header, which are in their normal places, just in front of white space. Odd.

Was using this site, well trying to use this site on my ipod last night (or early morning) but it kept logging me out or crashing. Gave up trying and caring.

The paste thing stopped after I'd logged in again. But I've been having MMMs problem a lot too. It actually just happened to my phone before posting this.

I've been kicked out so many times on my phone in the past 48 hours, I was beginning to take it personally. a-hard-days-night-george-4 I won't since others are having the same experience.

The half screen thing hasn't happened in a while.

Sorry for any weirdness. I don't know why it might be happening. I've not seen it myself, so it's kind of hard to troubleshoot.

@Zig, @Expert Textpert, the Simple Press devs would like to know which versions of Windows and IE you're using. Could you please let me know? Thanks.

(It's happening to me too, on my work PC - Windows 7, IE 8.)

I'm using Windows 7 and IE 8.0.7601.17514. It's my work computer. At home I use a Mac.

Joe, you may have looked into this already. But in case you haven't, I thought I'd pass this on to you.

When I am using the HTML editor, I cannot do @ mentions.

When I'm using the rich text editor, I can do them.

Testing 1 @Ahhh Girl Texterea.
Testing 2 @Ahhh Girl HTML.
Testing 3 @Ahhh Girl RichText.

OK, results. All 3 work if I enter at cbatcu directly. The Autocomplete thing only comes up in RichText. But if the person hasn't changed their username (or if you know their original one), you can mention them. Or you could just use RichText, which offers the most editing options anyway.

Oh, right. If for some reason you're using HTML anyway, you can't put in in multiple word usernames. "Ahhh Girl" or "Mr Bellamy" wouldn't work, but "Joe" or "IveJustSeenAFaceo" would.

I was trying to mention von bontee, a two part name, over in the Milestone posts thread when I discovered that there was some kind of difference. I am in the HTML editor. I am going to try typing your oneword name after an @ and see if it works for me.

@IveJustSeenAFaceo

Preview shows that it works. But, as you found, I didn't get the autocomplete.

Thank you for your help. Here's an apple for your hard work. apple01

EDIT:I find this quite amusing. Some quirk happened that gave me super powers, then the powers were zapped, then Joe suggested I try another editor. All that led to figuring this out. I'm a happy camper.

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:

Don't know whether this changes things but it's vonbontee (no capitals, no space) or Von Bontee (capital, space).

It does make a difference if you are using the HTML editor. I've found that the HTML editor works super well for me in so many ways. But the @ function won't bring up the autocompleter. So, I can only "mention" people with one word names whose original name I can actually remember. I can mention you @Ron Nasty (I can just straight type it in) because I've been around long enough and babbled along to you long enough to have your original name memorized. I cannot @ someone with two names ... like Ron Nasty.
