About: Error messages when posting/replying in the community

Every once in a while, you might encounter an error message when trying to post a new thread or reply to an existing one. Here are some tips we've found can help:

  • If you have included a hyperlink in your post and get an error message, try removing the hyperlink and instead paste the full URL
  • Try signing in and out of your account
  • Try clearing your browser's cache

Additionally, there are some posts where we do not allow replies.

We hope this information helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

FWIW, I also found that, when getting the hyperlink error, changing the target from "Open in New Page" to "Open in Current Page" resolves the error.

Get OUT!  Really?  That's good info, and I will try that.  I actually prefer a new page, but...

Thank you @Dad_Aint_Hip !

I'm still getting the "this widget could not be displayed" message. I can only see posts that appear under the "conversations" menu or something that appears in my notifications. If I go to any of the sub menus I get this message.
