I ma getting the following message when I try to post:
There has been an issue with rendering this post, please contact the editors.
What do I need to do to get my posts rendered?
Tarantoes, it's not you. That is a glitch.
It happened to me a couple of says ago.
It will clear itself.. hopefully
my concern is that I see that three of my posts have been unrendered, and two of these posts
were what I thought to be my redress to quite vicious ad hominems that remain on the site.
The ad homs were posted three weeks ago as I was leaving for vacation. On return I thought I had
posted my redress to them (five days ago) as my posts were visible on the H2G2 beta version but I only found out today that they do not appear on the full version ("failure in rendering"). Since the
thread discussion has already moved on my "posts of redress" have already been consigned to the back pages. Hence I am concerned that my "right to redress" is being lost to me (even if the glitch unglitches itself).
Now I don't really worry too much about the ad hominems themselves but I am quite a stickler to the principle of having a right to reply/redress and it is the (technical) denial of this that I find irksome.
Maybe I will have to do some experimenting to find out what the problem is using some "test" thread.
All the best
I think I have identified the problem and I wonder whether there would be someone with technical expertise that might be able to help out.
In the beta version you could reference a specific post or a range of posts within a link:
However in the new/full version you cannot link to a specific post you can only link to a specific page (it would seem), for example:
So my technical query is - is there a means of LINKing to a specific H2G2 post (i.e. an URL address) within a reply. If I am replying to a specific post that is say five pages back in the thread - by providing the specific LINK to the post in the reply makes it easier to direct the reply to the specific post.
How do you include links to specific posts in conversation lists in replies?
The failure to render is an issue associated with including url addresses.
more specifically it fails to render if you include url links to H2G2 conversations.
Hi is there someone with technical expertise?
The problem might be issues handling ? and & in the url address. I have found an ad hoc solution but it is not a long term solution.

Has always worked nicely for me
I think this is because of the transfer of information from the BBC to the new site. It might be best if you stop using Barlesque for a while.
This one works
