PLEASE POST THIS WARNING

Postby xerostar » Sun Feb 03, 2008 10:17 am

I've just spent 3 hours doing up a comprehensive new post with
illustrations and links.
I did a spell check and then went to Preview my finished post - only to be asked to log in again.
I did that and found a blank page ready for my post.
Clicking on the back button simply brought up "this page has expired"

3 hours of work wasted - stupid program!

I'm not feeling much like doing it again ..

Please warn other members - do everything you can offline and only log on
when nearly everything is complete!

The session length is set to 1 hour currently, so it will end the session and you will get this if over 1 hour. I just reset the time to 3 hours but it is a good idea to work offline anyway!

Please complete the post as you've got me curious!

RESOLVED.

Come on, do it again, happens to everyone at some stage somewhere, certainly to me several times over the years.

Don't take your toys outa the sand box and go home.

This happens to me quite regularly. If I want to post anything on CTH I always copy my reply and paste into notepad before hitting preview. I still forget sometimes.....and those are usually the involved posts...ugh! It doesn't take an hour for it to happen either.
