Solved Members And Admin Cannot Type In Post Or Reply Boxes

Post by docattak on February 13th 2014, 3:19 pm

Hi
Neither the members or admin can type in the box for new thread or reply ro existing thread.  The site navigates fine.  The site was dormant for a few months due to R/L situations and now bringing it back to life this is the problem Smile


Looked in all the admin areas and cannot find anything to change (since nothing has been touched I would expect that)

Many thanks

There is no error message - just cannot type in the space provided - forum worked for a long time - then it stopped for about 6 months - now new guys can join no problem - no-one, including the admin can type in any thread or reply box - they will not allow typing!

Thanks for the tries - everything was set as shown in the repsonses - it is not locked Smile

I notice from the front page of my forum that it is locked!!!  BUT the 'How To Unlock My Forum' guide about settings does not help as they are exactly as stated in that guide - this is why being locked was not looked at Smile  Also a member just joined ok!

Any suggestions on how to unlock the forum apart from those in the unlock guide?

Do you mean where it says New Post, No New Post, and Locked? If you do, those are for the topic icons.

New Posts , No New Posts, and Forum Is Locked but only New Posts has coloured background.

As stated the site works perfectly for member and Admin in ALL respects except unable to type in the Textbox that comes up when you Reply or Start New Thread - there is no cursor and no text.

If any official guy from forumotion wants me to pm my admin info I am quite happy to do so. 

The site is : http://docsfreedomfighters.forumotion.co.uk/ if anyone wants to look, register and try to help - I will remove your details as soon as this is sorted!  If this breaches any forumotion forum rules then please remove the offending part of this post!

After using the account, I locate the issue.

The background of the text editor and the color of the text were the same color (white). I added a code to your CSS to change the text color to black in the editor.

Here is the code:
Code:
#message-box textarea {
    color: black !important;
  }
You can change the color if you want. The code is at the top of the CSS stylesheet.
