WW. I found a solution!

Your title was just under the character limit of the subject field. But when you respond, the site adds in the characters "re: " in front of the title. this then automaticallly makes it too long.

If you remove the last few words of the response title, then you will be able to post. That is why if you look at my response title, it looks like it is missing a few words. I had to delete them.

Perhaps our fearless site owner could make the field a bit longer?

I see the problem. Thanks, Eng for the troubleshooting. Usually these limits are set by the database field size, and changing it could be messy. I guess they figured that 85 characters is enough for a subject field. I'd rather not mess with it unless it is a priority. Let me know if it is.

On the good news side, I believe we are getting close to launching a new online wine store --- by the end of the week, with luck. There will be 1700 wines in inventory and much more available with 2-3 days extra time.

I hope you will find some good buys there.

Keep the faith!

Thanks,
