Sorry

So sorry to everyone that when I post a comment it comes up twice. Very frustrating for me also. It is doing it automatically and I don’t know how to fix it. Once again I am so sorry that you have to put up with it duplicating

    Hi Robn, can we send out an SOS to all Tech Heads to fix your problem? You have been one of my major mentors on here. Thank you. Red or Safe might help too? Shaz would have no ideas. lol
    I'll kick it off here, hoping some tech head can help you!?
    What device is causing duplication?...................
    Check your devices, MOUSE SETTINGS,,,, IN SETTINGS
    Good luck Robn

    I;m near Canberra. And I remember you once said your near Adelaide. So that should qualify us both from AUSTRALIA.
    Please, Technical Computer Wizards! HELP Robn Fix her comments from duplicating.
    If no help, create another account. call yourself 'The One and Only Robn!' haha

    PuffNoMore is right again.....I have no idea. You have always given great advice , so repeating could be a good thing for some. Yes, it is wonderful to be a non-smoker and enjoy the benefits.

    Hi robn! Try using different browser for this website. Data saving browsers like "Opera" causes this kind of problems.
  • Red-67 October 14, 2020 | 8:28
    First off, Nothing to be sorry for. We see this glitch in many post, but mostly it is, sometimes, not clear if you have hit the post button.. But yours is different, doubles every time.. Strange. Does it happen anywhere else ? If so, maybe a mouse / driver, or button problem ? Easy to try Swapnil's idea. Load another browser, or two, free, and see if it does the same thing. Maybe even try clearing your cookies. Sometimes a lot of junk builds up in there.. Also, in Windows, it is a good idea to run a full malware / virus scan from time to time.
    Let us know what you try. It's an interesting puzzle.. I hand wired my first ( Micro Computer ) in the late 70s, and they can still give me surprises. I gave up on Windows several years ago. Way too vulnerable and too heavy ..
    -----------------------
    But,, don't sweat it. We don't mind, and we know it is just happening. Keep posting, and helping people :)

    Hi lovely Robin, make sure you are not pushing enter as well as post, this might fix it, I used to do something like that, and another thing is, you need to go back to Stories and Experiences title each time, after posting it won't continue on if you press enter.
  • Robn October 14, 2020 | 10:29
    Thank you to you all, I will try a few suggestions and see what happens.,,,,,fingers crossed it can be rectified easily.
    Much appreciate all your efforts to help me....it is like calling on the cavalry......lol
    May you all have a fantastic smoke free day x
  • Robn October 14, 2020 | 10:32
    Aha....it only posted once then. This time, just as a trial, I hit the post button then went up and signed out immediately and it didn’t duplicate....yay

    Hi Robn. Dont worry about it. Your posts are always so kind and positive, and i dont mind reading them twice. 💞
  • Robn October 14, 2020 | 20:35
    Thank you Nuts...that is lovely of you to say. Hope you are well and happy x
  • PuffNoMore, Southern NSW October 14, 2020 | 21:34
    Yes, Robn has always had the Knack to say stuff that makes sense at exactly the right time. So that is all good and thank you.
    I just tried hovering over the post button and press the enter button like softly suggested and it sent nothing? So this time I'll just hover over the "post" button and press once. then as softly also suggested, I will imediately go up to ALL or Stories button. You shouldnt have to immediately Sign out.
    Here goes and remember every smoke free day is getting us into a better place compared to the endless prison of addiction!
  • Nuts October 15, 2020 | 18:05
    I find that after i press the post button , i have to press the back arrow twice or it will post twice. I am using a samsung tablet
  • Robn October 15, 2020 | 19:33
    Thanks Nuts, I tried your suggestion but it still duplicates twice...stupid thing...lol
  • jessfreeof, South Eastern Sydney October 15, 2020 | 21:48
    Not a problem Robn👍
  • Robn October 15, 2020 | 23:12
    Thanks everyone, I think I have found a way to stop the duplicating posts.....so far so good...just hope it keeps working for me...lol
    Appreciate all your kind posts and suggestions. I am going to look like a right idiot if this one duplicates....lol
    Happy days x
  • Happiness October 16, 2020 | 2:12
    So far so good Robn. Another great solution!
  • Red-67 October 16, 2020 | 8:24
    Yep, That was only one :)
    What did you do differently ? I found that going back to ALL after a post, seems to be better than using the back button.. ? ?
  • Robn October 16, 2020 | 9:12
    Yes Red, I went back to ALL after posting and it worked....rather than using the back button. Thank goodness it worked.
    Off to do some gardening now.....enjoy your day x
  • PuffNoMore, Southern NSW October 16, 2020 | 10:54
    Yippee! Your not just a good mentor. Your also a good student!
    Another solution found in addition to not smoking.
