Whats happeining to the forum editor?

Um... is it just me, or is the forum editor just not working right any more. 


Chrome - All I get is a black screen with wrongly formatted text (pick to view):


2019-01-08 08_47_38-Solved_ Re_ Listing Appended Changes from Sharepoint List ... - Page 3 - Power p.png

Edge - I dont even get the formatting tools.  I just see "Rich Text, HTML, and Preview"


Photo editor - No more "Paste" into the window.  Now you have to save  your screen captures somewhere, then pick the file.  This is a BIG inconvenience. 


I have no idea why changes were made to this interface.  It worked great, and I never had trouble with it.


Oh, yea... dont pick "HTML" above after you have edited... you will regret it.  You lose all formatting, and you cant just pick back to Rich Text. 


Oh, and be sure to copy your post before you try to post.  You never know if you will have to enter it again.


What gives???

You'll have to clear your cache and restart chrome (and maybe re-MFA if you have that enabled). You'll be good to go then.

I get that black screen on multiple computers.  I also have no idea what re-MFA means.

Hi @martinav. Here is another post on the topic.

  • Ensure you're using Chrome.
  • Ensure you clear all cache at least 4 weeks back (at least thats what I had to do).
  • Be sure to close browser, maybe even restart computer to be thorough. 

MFA refers to Multi-factor Authentication

Hope this helps you get back up and running!

No, it really did not.  I did all what was mentioned.  I have quit using chrome for the most part.  This is on more than one platoform, so I'm not sure what to say about it.
