Why can’t I post?
 
Tried so many times to post,. After i’m Done typing and I submit the post, takes me back to members log in, I press on the tab as directed and I log in again, even though it says, i’m logged in, and then voila, nothing, blank page. So what next?

How do I post?

Well reading this you might have succeeded.
Have you checked off the box for staying logged in towards the bottom of the page?
Good luck and welcome too!

What an ironic post.:rofl:


Just do what you did to post your reply here.

Dèsirée 05-30-2019 02:13 PM

If I reply to others, no problem. The issue is with a new thread. Twice I tried today. Both times, the same thing happened, even though I was logged in, it took me to a page where it said, “to continue and view... blah, blah, blah.. you must first be logged in.” So I log in again, and to a blank page I go! .. I close the browser and start all over... after the second time, I copied my posting to save it instead of retyping everything again! Here it is!
————
Since February, I been trying to find a bus and a converter, but I have not been very successful.

Now, I’m finding out, to even get behind a school bus to practice, I need a cdl permit.

I spoke to a driving school and they said, I need to go to DMV, take a test for a cdl permit, class b, c with endorsements.

They also said, the test -because of the air breaks- is hard to pass. I explained, I was not looking for a commercial license but, I wanted to see which body type was easier for me to handle, pusher or front nose, but they said, even to take classes I need to go through all that.

After I get the permit, then it will cost a few thousand dollars to practice and then get the license that I will need to drive a school bus for personal use.

I don’t know what to do. In February I put all my things in storage thinking by now, everything would have been finished. Yet, I haven’t even started.

Any suggestions? This is all very upsetting.

o1marc 05-30-2019 02:20 PM

Find a used bus dealer in your area, they should let you test drive a few and see what works best for you. The air brake test is quite easy, they have it online and you can get every question on the test covered. I would not go through the expense and time to get a CDL so I can drive one that doesn't need a CDL.

I still don't understand your issue with posting. You say replying is fine, but posting a new thread gives issues, yet this is a new thread.

In the past I've had the same issues...I think?

Because I suck at computers and it takes me a long time to type something.
...If I type a few paragraphs I think the 'puter goes into a sleep mode or something that thinks you have left without closing down computer and automatically shuts down?


If I want to type a long paragraph I'll do it in a microsoft word file then copy and paste it to the thread.


Hope that made sense...

Dèsirée 05-30-2019 03:31 PM

That was a reply to your posting to me. It’s on the top... I do have an iPhone so i’m not using a computer maybe that’s the issue. I did go to a school bus company to look at what they had for sale. But they won’t allow you to drive if you don’t have the right endorsements or right license.

Dèsirée 05-30-2019 05:43 PM

So, as long as I post from this forum or category it will go through. But if I go to a different tab category, like I was trying to do previously is when it goes into a loop to nowhere mode. I would take screenshots but I don’t think, I would be allowed to attach. Maybe site newbies have to be vetted?

You started a thread saying you can't start a thread. It could very well be an issue . What do you mean "a school bus company"? New buses, or used sales?
The site vetting is 5 posts, you've surpassed that.

HazMatt 05-30-2019 06:01 PM

If you have a PC, try posting thru it. And, join any and all groups that you might have need for.
The site does work differently for fons, which is what prompted the latter suggestion. Maybe you can't post if'n you aren't a member.
Warning, Will Robinson! My hooks are flailing wildly!"
Which is to say, I'm using Android. No clue how IOS works...
Vetting occurs, I'm betting. But you now have 15 posts, to date, so you should ought have carte blanche now. Posts, pix, the whole shmegeggy.

Ha'ad tellin' not knowin', but maybe the site was undergoing maintenance..?

HazMatt 05-30-2019 06:02 PM

Just now noticed the category- Admin.
Is this where you originally failed to post to?

Dèsirée 05-30-2019 10:35 PM

I’m sorry if I have confused you or anyone else. I tried twice today alone, to post a new thread, but not on this forum. First, was on “Titles, Registrations, Money Matters....” so I typed and I pressed the tab to post. That took me to a mostly empty page just with headers and one long tab which said something in reference to, being logged in in order to post, view. But I was already logged in. Regardless, I pressed the tab and to a totally blank white page I went, with just a small header on the very top, right under where the time appears on the iPhone screen.

I closed the browser, and reopened the site, logged in, and went to a different forum. “Everything Else/ General Discussions.” Started a new thread. Press the to post tab, and again, the same thing. But at least this time, I copied what I had typed.

I was going to try a third time, but instead went to the forum where we’re now, looking for answers and I remembered when I first joined, I was able to post an intro. So I went in search of the why I can’t post, rather than what I really wanted to find out, which had me so upset.

And yes, it is ironic... for weeks, that NEW THREAD tab was not where it is now. I looked all over the site on how to post a new thread to be respectful as it is requested. For weeks I searched, but no tabs for new threads... and today, voilá ... there it was.... !

Maybe the issues relate to using a cell phone rather than standard hardware. Perhaps, there’s a mobil version and a non-android mobil version. And most of all perhaps there’s a way to access current threads with relatable information that doesn’t start back in 2014.... I mean, at what point does a conversation of people agreeing with each other stop after the first five year term of continuity... or do the conversations go on in perpetuity?

Now, that you know my unique experience of whatever it was that happened today, I will go and press that little tab in front of me, and let’s see what happens next.

HazMatt 05-31-2019 07:16 AM

Wouldn't you've been honked off if you hadn't done a preemptive "save" on the above thesis, and it had vanished..?!
If I tracked (& coffee's still a'brewing, so dubious at this point), you're using a browser to access the site on your IOS, not a stand-alone app?
Apple products has an app download site, not remembering it's name, ATM, where the Tapatalk app may be uploaded to your fon. Mayhaps that's putting the bug in your balm.
It is frustrating, and I empathise. Wrote a reply to an earlier comment of mine yesterday, was pleased with the final edits, and was nearly ready to post, and,
*poof*
Was redirected to a blank screen.
Paged back, but it was irretrievably gonzo.
Doo-doo occurs, and is oft times odiferous...

Dèsirée 05-31-2019 07:36 AM

Good morning! Just looked everywhere, no “save” option. If skoolie.net had an ios app, why wasn’t I redirected to the App Store, as it does with every other app at every other site. I will go and check right away. I did question the lack of app option on the very first day.

But first, I need my coffee!

Dèsirée 05-31-2019 07:38 AM

No iOS app!!

HazMatt 05-31-2019 08:07 AM

Well, doesn't THAT blow chunks?!! You might need to PM admin to inquire into that lamentable situation.
Android's app is pretty basic, compared to the forum's website, but at least it's available.
To reiterate, I don't know nuthin' 'bout no IOS, so don't know if this will help, but:
In the body of the text, tap anywhere, and a cursor with an available drop-down appears. On my Android, it resembles an obese, teal tear drop.
Tap the tear drop; and Paste, Clipboard, and Select All options are offered.
Tap Select All to present the Cut, Copy, Paste options. Copy.
To paste, I found one must type in a single random character to get the tear drop to appear, thus allowing Paste into the new pane. (Don't forget to delete initial character)
Yeah, it is a pane in the patootie, but less so than completely losing your first efforts!
Bon chance!

Dèsirée 05-31-2019 08:15 AM

Youuuu rrrrrr funny!!! Hahahaha!!!! So actually, cutting and pasting was the easiest compared to all the “traveling to nowhere” ... pretty basic, highlight and copy. As to why they don’t have an IOS app, I kind of think, it would require much more gigs than most apps. They do have a lot of threads going back years... site very congested. For newbies like me, hard to find things!!

HazMatt 05-31-2019 09:23 AM

Happy to've alleviated your burden, however briefly & marginally!
So, does the CnP procedure I delineated work for you?

highlight what you have written, then right click on the highlight, then hit save - easy - peazy

HazMatt 05-31-2019 10:31 AM

Late-breaking thought~ the problem may reside in your fon's default browser.
Try downloading and running several others, might just be one of them'll resolve the non-issue issue, and ameliorate your aggravation! 🤞

You can go to the App Store and get Tapatalk. Tapatalk is good for any fourums.

Ok thanks will do!!!

Dèsirée 05-31-2019 02:17 PM

I’m now viewing the first part of one of your messages. Before I was reading your postings through gmail. Then, someone else posted but could not see your very last message. I could only view it on notifications. So, to answer your question, the one thing I did not have issues with was copy/paste... ummm I thought I had replied to that... but yeah, pretty basic. I will try the Tapatalk app, let’s see what happens!... and no, no laptop or tablet... once you do everything with the iPhone is hard to go back.

Hello Haz.Mat.. I just posted a new thread, and of course the same thing happened. I posted under the General category but instead of clicking on the upper tabs I scrolled down to the category menu tabs, and it brought me back to where I started. So, I reposted on the Intro category and it went through.

Do, I need to register under each category of interest? Could that be the issue?

HazMatt 06-02-2019 01:37 PM

I don't know for a certainty, tho I did suggest that it may be a possibility a dozen or so posts ago.

Cut my teeth on Micro Squish products, and reckon I'd prefer dealing with the aggravation and frustrations inherent, than to learn a new OS.
To reiterate another earlier suggestion: contact the forum's admin, less'n someone here can teach the needed lesson...

Dèsirée 06-02-2019 01:48 PM

Indeed you did! And I thought I did too, but I can’t seem to find a trace of that. Maybe it never went through. This time I took screenshots so will try to contact admin again!

hazmat? i am from east tejas and between the wife and i we have family all over the state. You talk on the computer like your from the area but i guess have travelled extensively?

HazMatt 06-02-2019 01:59 PM

Good luck, amiga! 🤞

HazMatt 06-02-2019 02:13 PM

How do!
Yeah, suppose you might say that- been thru all of the Lower 48, excepting ND & Montana! Plan to, too. Just not in the wintertime! Seen the movie, "Fargo," enough to know better!
College Station is the nearest town of size near me, but not necessarily nearby. Tho by Texas standards, it is in the neighborhood...

Hey Haz.Matt.. you keep reminding me of a terrible hazardous material truck crash in Texas a couple of years ago... is Haz.Matt an abbreviated name, or industry related... just asking. And if is non of my business, that’s ok too!

Jolly Roger bus 223 06-02-2019 02:44 PM

aint bustin on your spellin pardner just aint really been there since 89 so i feel like i have lost some of my texas twang and ever time you post you bring back some memories/dad used to say murmories and orl instead of oil
thank ya

HazMatt 06-02-2019 02:48 PM

Des~
The word, "subtlety," is in my vocabulary. It just doesn't figure strongly in my behavior!
Industry related word play: Given that at times I have worked on hazardous material contaminated sites, and my first name is commonly associated with one of the 12 Apostles...
(How was that for trying to be subtle?)
I think I hurt myself... [emoji856]

Jolly Roger & Haz. Matt... you guys are carrying quite a fun thread. You remind me of that old Convoy chatter song. .. Yeap! Too bad I can’t attach sound to this post! Someone out there should recreate the lyrics with a skoolie theme. And then a whole bunch of you guys get together and record a real Skool-voys (from school boys) video song— ‘cause you got to show the vessels!’

HazMatt 06-02-2019 03:07 PM

No word back from Admin, I'm guessing.

Ok Captain Haz.Matt... a better reason to keep after admin, can we attach sound?? I have the song, I wish I could embed!

Dèsirée 06-02-2019 07:42 PM

Hahahahaha.... hahahahaha!!!! You’re sooooooo funny!!!! Have you tried comedy? I bet you can put together a very entertaining skoolie-convoy on air act!! You are a great text communicator. You have a very good verbiage usage. And according to Mr. Jolly Roger, you know how to use words to attract the attention of many unsuspecting forum members.

Just think all you have accomplished today with just a few words here and there.

The art of the written word, is being transformed in something other than just written. And at this rate, the convoy will only mark the beginning of the first SKOOLIE NATION

HazMatt 06-02-2019 09:08 PM

Darlin', my life is comedy.
Shakespearean style...
Of errors...
'Verbiage usage.' I like it, and I think maybe you get me. (For which, you have my deepest sympathies)

*phew* In these politically correct times, I hesitated, briefly. (OK, 3.7 nanoseconds. Tops. But I DID pause...)
You don't come across as a shrinking violet, and I did not want to offend. However, I also didn't want to back away from a pun that made me giggle like a school girl, either!
"Attract unsuspecting attention..." *sheesh* Now you're making feel like a trap-door spider as well as a letch...
Skoolie Nation I can get behind.
Alien Nation, nope. I'd have to shave off my tresses and, if I don't already sport liver spots on my dome, have to have them tattooed on.
My masochism apparently DOES have limits...

Dèsirée 06-02-2019 10:11 PM

Hey!! ... "Attract unsuspecting attention..." not what I wrote.
I believe I wrote, ‘you know how to use words to attract the attention of unsuspecting forum members’ .. and I was referring to Mr. Jolly Roger, referring to you (as in my opinion) which by the way, it’s a good thing... not a spider, but a magnet, that’s the key word... it’s a compliment... take it from me, someone who owned 3, 867 books and loves the art of the written anything —old words, new words, and the words yet to be invented.

HazMatt 06-03-2019 07:49 AM

What can I say? Artistic license! Can't a fella paraphrase? Besides, it sounded more ominous, and simplified the scary spider simile.
But thank you...

Not for nothing, but in case you don't know: if you tap on a post, you can quote it, both addressing the respondent, and letting them know you wrote.
Multiple posts may be quoted at one time, too. After highlighting all & sundry, there's a left turning arrow at top right page, upon which a tap will afford the opportunity to reply to several at a shot.

Dèsirée 06-03-2019 02:17 PM

Yes, I do know that. But i’ve seen how others use the quote option and to repeat endlessly the same thing over and over and over again.

The issue I do have responding from gmail is, I only see one posting when in actuality there could be multiple. So I really need to go into the site and see what i’ve missed because, one thing is for sure, i’m still where I was yesterday afternoon.... no progress, only a car rental.

I did see how I replied to you thinking it was the posting before yours. But I think you figured it out.

I on the other hand, didn’t know, until I briefly saw your posting questioning it. .... so before we get even more perplexed, best to change the conversation.

HazMatt 06-03-2019 02:33 PM

Fair 'nuff.
So, howzabout dem Red Sox?!!

Dèsirée 06-03-2019 03:13 PM

Guess what!!!! I did it!!!! I want to share the good news with you first!!!! ..

So I reposted on the right forum.

Ok, see how exited I can get about taking baby steps.. anyway, had to go through “full site view” —granted text is very small—- but it went through... no looping around ... hahaha!!!

Now, am just waiting for all those skoolie Gods to start knocking at my door!

Ohhhhh....

Wait, I forgot.... I don’t have a door.

HazMatt 06-03-2019 04:09 PM

Yes, I just (re-)viewed it.
It was almost like a deja view, all over again...
Celebrate the small victories! Sprinkle some catnip for Spreckles, and indulge in your favorite brain chemistry neuro-receptor alterer (is that an actual word?) of choice.
The good news is that that's one hurdle vanquished!!!
The bad news being, the 400 m race is just beginning...
(LOL, BTW. Maybe they'll send an email down from Skoolie Olympus on a lightning bolt)
I'd suggest, while awaiting epiphanies from the ether, that you broaden your search to Craig's Lists over a large portion of the Mid-Atlantic region, at least. Plus, every auction house known to deal busses.
Other resources may exist, hopefully a helpful soul will chime in with 'em.

Dèsirée 06-03-2019 07:07 PM

The small victory, got even smaller!

I was on the SITE. I was responding to one of your posting which I didn’t see before. I finished writing. Pressed post quick reply.

And then, to a blank page I was sent.

Ok, let me rephrase the statement.

I was on the site. I saw my name on the list of who was currently online. I had logged in. It even said, “welcome and my name.”

I was trying to catch up with the postings. Found yours and quickly responded. It went no where, I went to a blank page. Tried to retrieve the screen, and it tells me, I need to log in.... Holly Ravioli!!!

And I still see my name on the bottom as being logged in. As a matter of fact, there was no tab to log in, only to log out. Holly Ravioli, no, not again!!

So, this is what I was trying to inquire before the holly Ravioli thing :
“What sign comes between Leo and Virgo..?”

Forget Holly Ravioli, this is more like Skoolie-Spooky!
I’m a Leo and a Leo on the cusp of Virgo... so my question to you is, besides being a comedian, are you a mentalist as well ? Out of 12 astrological signs, you picked those two???

And my next question is, do you have the winning Mega Numbers for tomorrow Tuesday? I hear the jackpot is over $400... Hey, it’ll just be between you and me. I promise I won’t tell anyone!!!

And i’ll be more than happy to split it with you!!! How’s a 60/40 split on the net amount?? 60% for you, 40% for me....heeheeheeheehee!!!!
