help needed

Postby Jade » Thu Oct 16, 2008 12:47 am

Hi
I posted a reply to a topic. I was logged in but it took me over an hour to finish and when I submitted it I said I needed to be logged in. I logged back in but I can't find what I wrote. Is ther any way to get that back so I can post it?

Thanks
Jade

If they system asked for you to be logged in, then there was no way for it to save your post. Sorry. :(

Hang on!

I'm using FireFox and the same thing happened to me!

I had to re-log in, but once I did, my post disappeared! So I hit the "BACK" button and BAM! There was my post! So I just copied and pasted and YAY! I didn't lose it!

Just thought I'd let you know :D

Thanks Mama bear,
But it happened again today, and no such luck for me.
I'll just have to start again

I visit another forum that oftentimes ends my session while I'm typing. If I'm writing a long post for that forum, I'll actually write it in a program like Notepad, Wordpad, or Word first. Then, I'll copy and paste the text to the forum entry. If my session has timed out, I still have the post in the original program that I typed it in. Might be worth a try.
