In another thread, someone asked me a question, and I tried three or so times to respond (hitting the quote button to start the response), and then hitting ?Post Quick Reply?, and was taken to another page and my existing post disappeared.

Is that what is supposed to happen if you hit "Go Advanced" and I hit a different button from what I intended? Or is this not something that should happen?

Thanks,
Jonathan

Sorry, although I am one of the moderators my understanding of the technical aspects of the Forum are limited.
One suggestion though- are you logged in? (see top right of your page). If you are not logged in the page 'times out' after a period of time I think. From what I recall when this happens your replies can entirely disappear.

I was logged in. I wonder if I hit a different button than was intended and clobbered what I was trying to post.

Perhaps. I've certainly done this enough times myself!

WHen you log in, you have to click the "remember me" box.

I found out what I did wrong.

I clicked the "Reply to Thread" button, wrote my reply, and then pushed the bigger, bold red "Reply to Thread" button instead of the intended "Post Quick Reply".

Would it be possible to hide or disable the "Reply to Thread" button once it's been clicked?

Edit: What I wrote above isn't quite right; I didn't, I think, initially click "Reply to Thread" but just started typing in the box. So my solution is wrong, but maybe the button could be deactivated once someone starts typing in the box, or something like that.

Sometimes I get logged off after writing something and it disappears. It is so random, (I know this may sound silly) that I have decided that God didn't want what I said in that particular post to be posted!
