Hi all

 

A fairly minor gripe but I have just lost a fairly lengthy topic I was posting TWICE!

 

It's due to where I was using Alt + Tab to jump between windows and was using another screen for reference. Somehow the cursor de-selected the text box and when I hit backspace it lost everything and took me back a page.

 

The "Last auto saved" message is cool, but where exactly does it save too?

 

My issue is, can there be something added that prevents you from going back a screen with backspace while posting unless you confirm? I know Chrome added this as a new default recently, but many other sites with input boxes have a smart code that prevents mishaps like this.

 

Mini-rant over.

 

Thanks for reading!

Seriously doubt it since the site is entirely forum software. If that happens just hit the forward button on your browser and the text should still be there. Else, use a text editor to write your long posts so you don't lose it.

Two easy solutions. :^_^:

Yeah I'm out of the loop on software, the old forums I used to moderate had a flag in the Admin CP for that very setting.

 

I'm just bummed because I used a bunch of formatting that doesn't copy/paste all that well. It was just a mini-guide for integrating Wyrmstooth into SRLE LOTD :P

 

Now I think about it, anyone can make a Wiki page right?

Get the Lazarus plugin for FireFox. You will never lose a thing again in a free-text field ;)
