I have posted a tutorial on the Photoshop Members Tutorials and it all worked fine, but when I tried to post the same tutorial on the Elements Members Tutorials I got he message that there were "Too Few Characters". Any ideas
I suspect it may be due to the way you "copied" the text over. If you did it via a Quote option, the post will appear in BBCode format and that text does not count - so the BB software "sees" no message.
Try a simple select, edit, copy, then create your new post and do a edit, paste (or the Ctrl+c, Ctrl+v shortcuts).
