The button to start a new topic is missing for some people.....


For example, slclick sees this:


Yet click and I see this:


I have tried clearing browser cache, it makes no difference.

Cookies are enabled.

I have tried this on a desktop PC (windows 10), two different iPads, a windows 10 laptop, and a windows 7 laptop. None of them show the new topic button.

I have tried Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge for browsers.... still no luck!

I have tried at home, at work, and at a friend's house.... still no button!


In so many words, HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

Don, it should be ok now.

The issue was too many posts! For some reason, when those member groups with high post counts were created, they were based on a group that did not have permission to create new topics. I've fixed that.

Two member groups containing 4 people were affected.

We're in groups? ???
yes, according to the number of posts..... you know the "ranking" that comes with your name? like "Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II".....

apparantly four people were affected....

There was Click in the group "Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L" and there was myself, privatebydesign, and ahsanford in the group "Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS"...

It seems that Neuro was right..... I did not have enough posts :)

Oh, I get it, it's like a caste system.
Yes, and when you move to your "next body" you'll have a chance to advance to a higher caste. :) :p
I need to work at it then, I'm such a lowly noob at 7D2.
Don't you speak lowly of my cherished 7D2 :mad: ;D

;) Don't we all love the humour and banter in CR... ;)
