Double Posting Bug Not a Bug...Just a visual oddity.

For all of you that are getting double postings...or think you are and then editing to delete the second one.

When you edit a post, it appears to show the original followed by a second version of that...which leads some people to attempt to edit the second one to say "sorry, double post". What is actually happening is that your edit is creating the second post.

If you just hit refresh after editing your post, you will see that there is only a single post, not two. This has been my experience all along. Just thought I'd put this out there if it can be of assistance to any.

    There is an issue with doubling posting though. It hasn't happened to me for about a week but after hitting 'post comment' the forum would timeout and say there was an error. So I would post again which created two posts.
    There is also an issue with editing. It doesn't allow you to edit attachments. You can delete an attachment but you cannot repost. That started after the vanilla people updated something a few weeks ago.

    @masmith93 I've noticed that too. Not possible to add an image in an update. I've just seen lots of people say things like "don't know why i bother to edit due to double post" but I think it is not an actual double post during edit, just seems that way and the corrective action they take to avoid it is the actual second post.

    Yes, I can see their confusion. Whatever updates they made to the software, I don't think the vanilla people did us any favors. Still waiting on those new emojis. :)

    @lmfgunnut , yeah it's really annoying. I have done that, then had to go back and edit the post again to put the message back in.

    How could it not be misleading

    As I was posting last night, I couldn't stop the emoji menu from popping up while I typed. I wasn't hitting ":" to activate the deeper emoji menu either. It made it extremely difficult to type a post.

    Thankfully, I'm a persistent mofo and was able to get it together and share my thoughts with all of you :heart:

    @blynknz totally deceptive. But if people realize it isn't ACTUALLY a double post, they can save themselves some frustration

    Yes, so its good that you pointed it out.

    @Vintage_Bull, Ive had that once, when it seemed like it thought I was wanting to do an emoji. It was bloody annoying
