The last couple of months I have been experiencing problems when I try to edit old posts of mine. All the text disappears in the preview if I add new text.

Another post that I cannot edit anymore is the first post on the GRRRL Squad-Official Sign-up thread. The post is originally from Schph Gochi (Phyllis Schulte). I started updating it when I became the new GRRRL-Squad leader on January 11th, 2019. The last time I was able to add new member roster photos was May 4th, 2020. Perhaps there is a formatting issue somewhere in the text or photos but why is it a problem now when it was never a problem before?

I've also been having problems with the preview window being blank when editing even newly posted posts. Usually if I get rid of some of the BBCode I can get it to work eventually, but I haven't been able to figure out precisely what is triggering it.

The issue with editing and post disappearing (happens when previewed) is that special characters (those not appearing on the keyboard) are in use.

It is that and not BBcode. Alas when PHP was last updated, something went askew that it made it so the forum couldn't handle non-standard character.

So if you have a post with any of those in the title it will be blanked out, and that makes it rather difficult to click on.

Special character include but are not limited to, accents, real quotes, real apostrophes, dashes, cents, non-dollar currencies, etc.

So long as it isn't in the title they can be in a post, but cannot be previewed.

Thank you for your help. I was able to update the GRRRL-sign-up thread after I took all the non-standard characters out.
