Login/Posting Problems

When I visit the site, I can't post a response, so I login.

After logging in, I go to the posting page and I write my post.

When I'm done, I hit "submit" and it sends me to the login page where I realize that I've lost my post.

I suppose clicking "remember me" box would solve that, but sometimes I forget.

Any thoughts?

I use the "remember me" thing.

I suppose that if the timeout is set to something like 30 minutes, and you take 45 minutes to compose your post, then it would timeout by the time you hit submit.

How long were you taking to compose your post?

I've had exactly the same problem since we've moved to the new software. At first I thought I'd lost all my work, but after resigning-in as prompted, I use the BACK key to return to my posting and repress SUBMIT. However if I've used an attachment, that has to be reselected. A little complicated perhaps, but better than retyping the whole thing.
Of course, I found a very beautiful couch. Definitely. And this tiny ad:
