Problems posting....
Sat, 04-05-2003 - 7:22am
I have had this happen to me three times now. I don't know if it's my

computer, or the new format. When I write a message, and then advance to the

'preview message' screen, I always find mistakes. I hit 'back' to correct them,

but when my 'back' screen comes up, it is blank. I have to then 'forward' to

and the page I just wrote, 'copy' my entry, then go 'back', and then 'paste'

it in to correct the mistakes. What a pain in the rear.

What do you all think? Anyone with similar experiences, or is this my

computer? I never had this happen on the old format.

It just happened to me too,Tracy. That is so annoying ~ I use the back button all the time and this is the first time I lost my post. Had to forward and copy and paste. Sounds like a software glitch to me.

I hit the EDIT button too... and i did the same thing you did Tracy... got all ticked off about having to copy & paste the message and then one day I seen the EDIT button and I felt like hitting myself in the head. LOL

Take Care, Sweetie and hope you get the hang of it soon....

I have to agree. With this format, you don't go back. Just hit the edit button instead. Linda T.

I used to have that trouble with the old format all the time. Have you tried the edit button instead of back? It is available on the preview screen at right next to post or you can edit after you post.
