Mods,

There's something wrong with the edit tools. I'm trying to edit THIS (http://www.casc.on.ca/forums/showpost.php?p=254973&postcount=1) post, but when I click on "Go Advanced," I end up at a "Page not found" page that is styled like the main CASC-OR website. I'm not sure if the link will work, but HERE (http://www.casc.on.ca/forums/editpost.php?do=updatepost&postid=254973) it is. Even if I don't try to "Go Advanced," and just click on "Save," I end up at the same spot.

Very peculiar.

I just tried going to the post and was able to edit it using the Edit button in the lower right corner.

However, the URL of the edit button is not the same as the one you posted - yours has 'updatepost' as a parameter instead of 'editpost'

http://www.casc.on.ca/forums/editpost.php?do=editpost&p=254973

The reason you ended up at the 404 page you did is because the forums are a folder under www.casc.on.ca - if you try to go to a bad page address anywhere under that you get the 404 page from the main site.

Try again by going to the post and then using the edit button? Let me know if you are successful please?

No dice.

On my first attempt, I clicked "Edit" in the bottom right corner, and then "Go Advanced"...ended up at the same "Page not found" page as before. Second attempt, I clicked "Edit" in the bottom right corner, made my edits manually, clicked "Save Changes," and again ended up at the same "Page not found" page. Third attempt, I clicked on your link, and it took me to the advanced editing page, but when I click on "Save Changes," it takes me to the "Page not found" page again.

Officially categorized as weird.

I'm going to make a meaningless change to the post and see what happens to me.

EDIT- I tried editing it and got the same result as you did - now I am trying to edit this post to see if it's specific to that post or an overall issue

OK, whatever the issue is, it appears to be related to that particular post only.

I am going to speculate that there is something about the links in the post (there are several) which may be causing some problem in the editing - I am going to recreate the post in THIS thread to see if the same problem happens.

OK - the issue is caused by some link in the original post.

If I remove all links from the post it becomes editable again.

If I paste the VBulletin coded message with the links, it won't post.

I am thinking the goo.gl link may be the source of the problem - I'll try one more test.

OK, there you go. Removed the two links in the first paragraph and the post was editable again.

I don't have an explanation for it, I'm afraid.

I can post the two links as they were posted and they are fine.

My only suggestion is to perhaps split some of the linked information into separate posts?

Hope this helps.

Odd.

Somewhat discouraging as well as I plan to add more links as we create our events on MotorsportReg.

I think you can plan on posting the MSR links.

If worst comes to worst, you may have to create a "registration" post, a "venue" post and so on.

Never seen this in a decade - I will continue to test to try and isolate the cause.
