Thread: how to recover lost post?

    how to recover lost post?

    Had just finished a write up of days stalking. Pressed post to find I had timed out. Is there any way of recovering the post. I see a auto save happens every so often. But where does it save this info to? I hadn't copied the post so looks like its lost, along with half an hours time. Hope it can be restored but not hopefull.

    Try looging in, go back to the thread and click reply again, it may re-appear, and it might not.
    Works for me, but I never log out.

    If you check the remember me box when you log on you will not get timed out.

    Go to make the post again and look in the bottom left of the editor, if you are lucky a link to recover it will be there, but it depends how long you had been timed out for.

    We keep having to tell people about timing out, I might make it ticked by default actually....

    Thanks folks. Couldn't get it back but will redo the write up in the next day or two. I think the default remember me is a good idea. Cheers.
