You ever write a post for the RCB and click on SUBMIT only to have the dreaded pink "OBSOLETE FORM" message banner pop up on your display?

If this happens to you, the first thing you should do is go to your Message window and

SELECT ALL of your message (Windows: right click and SELECT ALL; iOS: double tap and SELECT ALL)

COPY your message (W: right click and COPY; iOS: select COPY from the popup options banner)

You can proceed two ways from here.

1. You can paste your message into your word processor for safe keeping until you are sure you are back in the good graces of the RCB's underlying programming, then paste it into the blank NEW TOPIC window you open,


2. You can stay in the RCB and then
Click on your USER icon in the RCB menu banner
Click on ONLINE (see example below)

A blank NEW TOPIC page will appear after you click ONLINE.

PASTE the message you copied into this window, then
Reenter the SUBJECT title, then
Click on SUBMIT and you should be good to go.

I will keep this message here until Sunday, then move it to the "SITE ADMIN" -- "HOW TO USE THIS BOARD" folder for future reference.

Good luck and good posting and ROCK CHALK! JAYHAWK! KU!
