An Unexpected Happening Can't Post

I think this is a question for one of the superusers.

I updated my signature to include a World Hobbit Day image, and the first post I made with the new siggie is in this thread.

I have no idea why it's messed up and shows that "View Threaded" button though. I thought it was a temporary glitch, but now I see my post as the last one in the thread, even though, in the list of thread on Hobbit - Movie, it says Estel87 is (currently) the last poster. Also, another member "The Hutt" replied to my post (I know because I got an email alert), but even clicking on the link does not show me their post. All I see is my post as the last one in that thread.

If I turn my signature off for that post alone, I see further posts, but as soon as I turn it on, mine's the last one.

Thanks, I've edited my problem post to remove the signature... [In reply to] Can't Post

... and I realized Carne faced the issue too. All should be fine now, though I've no idea why it is that only that post is causing issues. All my subsequent posts with the exact same signature are working perfectly Unimpressed

did it just resolve? [In reply to] Can't Post

I started a post to report what I was seeing... which was pretty much what you guys were reporting.

But while investigating a little further, it seems to have resolved itself.

Oh, I see you took your footer out. Maybe that was it.

Did You [In reply to] Can't Post

correct or change anything in your footer in addition to just taking it out of your post? If it wasn't happening before you changed your footer - it's something you did while changing it.

I believe it has to do with the size of the footer pic. [In reply to] Can't Post

This issue has happened before, when someone used an avatar with a size that exceeded the recommended size: the board gagged on it!

Earl, what number footer were you using? You can open Magpie's link in a new tab, and check the size on it.

Nope, just this one as it's my lucky number :) [In reply to] Can't Post

It's also strange because the signature in that post only shows a "View Threaded" button. I have no idea where that came from. I use Chrome for what it's worth.

And, you didn't change anything after you got that button in your footer? [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe you should take out your old footer for now. just to be safe.

Nope... [In reply to] Can't Post

... all my other settings are exactly the same as before.

In any case, I've wiped out my old footer content now, so hopefully there won't be any problems.

Yeah, I only noticed it because TheHutt replied to my post and I couldn't access their post.. [In reply to] Can't Post

... it may be the combination of the new footer image and my old footer code that caused the strange behaviour.

I'm trying to think of the sequence of steps I followed when I saw that "View Threaded" button after making my first post with the new footer. But nothing stands out. I tried disabling the signature, for that post then enabling it, but the button showed up again. So I responded to Magpie's post in another thread and the footer showed up just fine.

Oh well!
