Just typed a fairly long post, and it is entirely gone ... NBD Thanks, Vic
Anyway, I have been having good luck with the autosave (and JS enabled).
I could not find any tracks of your edit, so it is probably "gone".
I am contacting Vanilla support about this.
There is (or should be, with JS enabled) a Save Draft button if you need to manual save your work...
And, can you tell me anything more about what happened (why did the initial post fail, etc.)?
Concerning Andrew's comment on iOS 9.3.5 being out of date.....According to Apple 9.3.5 is the latest release for my iPad , I'm not going to replace my iPad due to some software not supporting a current product! It works fine on all the other forum so and everywhere else I go on the Internet ...its not my iPad still 1 character at a time! I'm far more frequent on MidNite forum and never had an issue. Or anywhere else . There are no Java scrip updates for 9.3.5. Kinda like winders...gotta buy everything new every year
Yea, I see that with Android devices... The mfg. cannot possibly be bothered with keeping older devices up to date... However, my daughter can frequently update them with the latest and greatest Android with an hour's work (looking for open source hacks of the devices).
I will contact Vanilla Support again.
I have searched but can't find a better replacement for safari. Chrome stopped supporting and the other one as well, forgot who that was, interesting, when p.m. zing members on delay is not seen, just sent message to photowit, no problem. The combination of the typing delay and apple auto butcher my spelling is making it difficult to post, having to go back and edit, I edited a post in my email program and copied and pasted it to forum, very fast, no delay.....
One day I will get one of the big screen iPads but buck$$$
Annoying , when using the Quote , and pasting sentences of more than one line , the first line(s) get inserted above the quote box .
Android 8.1.0 , Crome browser .
cannot post all morning now back to 5 seconds to enter each character.......
OK, I give up... There are about 1 or 2 things I liked about the Rich Text Editor, but I am changing back to the WYSIWYG editor that we have been using.
Hopefully, things will go back to "normal".
Same Apple iPad that I use 99% of the time, I do have a Lenovo idea pad but it is rather clumsy compared to the iPad. I just lost edit today but for several days best of has disappeared. Sometimes I see a message that I must have some add on, a common one that I'm sure that I have, there are other strange things happening, sometimes I get an email that I can't display, just got a request from pay pal that I could not display. I'm trying researching on iPad viruses but there is scant information on the subject and no scanners that I have found. I generally don't go to unknown sites, you never know what you are going to get. It does work much better with very quick response on typing, before I would be 10 or more characters ahead ot screen response but apples autobutcherspell would scramble it before it was displayed on screen, coupled with no edit, that was fustrating
EDIT>>>>now logged in from Lenovo editing post from ipad gear wheel works, best of reappeared, seems normal from here, I cant find switch for desktop mode/mobile mode
There should be a "full site" link if you click on the 3 bar menu icon.
BB, janka and I were editing at the same time, his post got lost and mine posted but I lost control.....the comment box stays grey and post your comment is posted in the post on my post but not his. I just cleaned out cache and cookies, strange happenings. Maybe I should log out and back in with puffin browser to see it that makes a difference
