Message Too Short????

Postby Rowan » Wed December 16th, 2009, 4:29 pm

Okay I was just trying to add a post in the news section and it's telling me that my post content is too short. I have a big block quote as well as a link. How is that too short? :confused:

Did you add text of your own besides the quote and the link? Sometimes it wants you to do that.

No I didn't. Seems absurd that you should have to. I'll think of something to say I guess. Thanks.

I've had that problem too, Rowan, I don't know what causes it, so I just typed a slightly longer message!

Well that's the thing Madeleine, I didn't type anything. I simply copied and pasted a chunk of the article and then added the link.
