      Sorry you are having issues posting a comment on a Hub.

      From your edit to your original post, can I assume you figured out the issue and it was related to using special characters on the comment?
      Your examples, < and  >  ?

      If so, I was able to reproduce this what you are seeing and have let our engineering team know so that we might make the error message more prominent.

    "<" and ">" are important characters when it comes to website programming.  As such, when they show up in text, it highly perturbs many websites. I would imagine that the "B" site practically implodes every time it runs into these two characters in user text. big_smile

    Yes, it was the greater than less than signs.

    There are currently error messages, but I just didn't see it (I missed it.)

      I too see the message now when I test.

      I swear when I did the same test before it kicked me back to the top of the page so I didn't see the messages. Is that what you witnessed as well?

      Either way, it seems to be showing the message now, I just wanted to see if you ran into the exact same issue I saw earlier.
