Is there an issue posting tweets. It jut shows my link and not the actually tweet? See Ciara GAD thread last page for example.
It just shows my Twitter link between the code [tweet][/tweet]

You can only post the direct link to the Tweet, you've also posted some other random text:

[tweet]https://twitter.com/brunonewsbr/status/969737753289256961?s=21[/tweet]

Everything after the "?" is surplus to requirements (in a video, that "?s=21" would represent a video or moving image starting at 00:21 seconds, not sure how it's made it onto your Tweet).

Ok. I see now. But I've never had to delete anything from he ? Onwards before. I think it night have been something changed from Twitter. Here is the direct tweet though and like you said, remove everything from ? Onwards

Thanks Wayne

^ If you click on the little arrow next to "Follow" and select "Copy Link to Tweet" it doesn't include the ? onwards:

https://twitter.com/absolutebritney/sta ... 2685185025

That's how I always access Twitter links.

I lost a post twice in a row now! (Definitely not my week this week. I'm pretty angry...)

Error message: There is too few characters in your post

Is there a size restriction in place again? Usually if I go back one page the content of the post is cached but now all data is just... gone!

I upped the limit a while back from 60,000 characters per post to 100,000 characters - so unless your post exceeds 100,000 characters, there shouldn't be an issue.

What your describing usually occurs when there's a character in the body of the text that phpBB doesn't like.

Try copying your text into notepad, and then back into a NEW post - this is especially relevant if the body of your text has been created in a Microsoft program. See if that works.

If what you're trying to do with your current post is create a new topic, then try just adding it to an existing topic in the Test forum.

Failing this, feel free to send me a copy of what you're trying to post to wayne@ukmix.org and I'll take a look.

Thanks, Wayne! :D
Was working with saved post drafts which I kept updating when I had a minute to spare to add content.
This has taught me a lesson and I will start and save the drafts on my laptop, only.
The posts in questions are (I had to split them in two):

I was trying to upload a TS avatar I already sported here in the site. Is UKMIX boycotting my girl or what? :evil: :P

Maybe a weird question, but is there a way to see who viewed a topic?

I swear my charts topic had like 188,2xx views earlier today, and out of a sudden it's at nearly 190k :-?

Ask him/her to try now.

For some reason, they never left the Newly Registered Users usergroup (which they should do, upon making 10 posts) - that usergroup isn't allowed to post images. I've manually changed the users settings, will check over the overall registration settings later.

That little page symbol next to "by bm08" - click that, and then the new link in the browser is the direct link to that post. Is that what you mean?

Mods. Is there an issue with some replies being edited? I was about to report it for Nippian yesterday and noticed it for me this morning. I inserted a tweet in this reply with Brandy and her 2 aunts singing “these streets”. But the tweet link is missing now, only shiw8 g my blank response.

Tried to post at the Taylor Swift thread in GAD, I see a successfully posted message but it doesn't show and gets me to the 1st page.

The “go to first new post” feature isn’t working for me anymore, it links to the page, but not the post :(
Looks like I found my way home
