To say the least I am very irritated right now. I was commenting on a topic that just got locked, and spent some time typing up my reply. When I hit the button to post I was sent to an error message that said the topic was locked. I hit the back button, and my post was gone.
I thought this was a feature, but if for any reason an error shows up during the posting process, there *should* be a solid way to save your post. At least then you don't completely felt like you just wasted a bunch of time.
I know it used to save your post in a textarea below the error message when this occurred, does it not do that anymore?
I've never had that happen. :huh:
Just checked the code for the $ipsclass->Error(), and yes, if there is an error and there is $_POST['Post'] data, then it should display a textarea with the full contents of that post. If it is not doing this, I'd open a bug report.
Just tested my 2.3.6 dev board and its still working, although it's not something that you get to see too often (a topic being closed while you are in the process of replying) :)
The problem, though, may be your browser itself and not IPB. Some browsers will attempt to refresh the page when you press the back button, and thus cause the data to be lost.
But yes, IPB is supposed to give you a text box with the post data so you can copy it in case your browser will do this.
Hmmm... odd... it did not do it on this board yesterday.. Or at least I'm pretty sure it didn't :blink: .
Come to think of it, maybe I hit the "Preview" button instead.
lol - apology accepted o:)
