    A minute ago I had to sign out and delete everything to get to the last page of a thread, but it seems to have worked

    There is a known issue that seems to require some very specific parameters to manifest itself. When replying with quote, and dropping down two lines to initiate your reply, the space bar won't register. This is happening on several versions of the vBulletin software. The solution, until vB implements a more permanent one, is to click the a/A button at the top left of the reply box before typing your response.

    If this isn't the issue you're having, please provide more details of the issue you're running into, with info about the browser you're using, the OS (mobile, desktop, Win or Mac). Any screenshots of the problem would also be helpful.

    Thanks
    Neil

    I have had situations where I would type in a reply, click on post quick reply , then an hour or so later when I came to look, it would not be there.
    Sometimes it happened on reply with quote. But my biggest bitch is in my own computer. I have to take the time to carefully re-read anything I type and make corrections because the auto correct often substitutes its' own words for mine, sometimes changing the meaning of the post. Whoever invented auto correct should be hung up by the thumbs and left to rot, just like they did it in the old days.

    I don't know which browser you're using, but in Chrome, you can set it to highlight possible spelling errors, without actually auto-correcting anything. On mobile, yeah...I have to double check everything I type on one of my Android devices.

    Had a Vb issue where all of the typing just started going backwards. The cursor would stay in one place and the words would flow off to the right of it... backwards.

    Not seen it for some months now.
