    Just in case our tech-type people don't know:

    When I'm writing a post or PM (some of the time), my spacebar won't work. It'll work in other webpages and programs, but it won't work in the post or PM. If I hit "go advanced" then I can usually use my spacebar in the new text box. If I arrow back to what I've already typed then I can put spaces in. I thought it was just my computer doing this, but it's happened to Brandon too. :cheese

    It's happened to me too! Not all the time, but several times in the past 2 days.

    It's happened to me several times over the last few days as well.

    I'm using Chrome, haven't tried other browsers because I don't like them.

    I posted about this in bugs a few weeks ago. It drives me up the wall. :(

    It's not just me then! I have noticed that if I hit enter first, then it is working on the next line :look

    Yup.-Spaces-are-over-rated.

    Chrome (maybe IE too) broke something and we are working on a fix as we speak...

    I've had it happen to me a few times when posting as well. I'm using Chrome, and it *just* happened when I did a "Reply With Quote", but seems to be working in the "Quick Reply" box

    Just came here to post about the same problem. Spacebar only fails after the first word, though. I can type a space in front of the first word, c/p it, type the second word, and then the spacebar works perfectly again.
