I've never been able to "save" a post while in the forum. When you go to submit your post and someone else has responded while you were typing, you have the choice to "modify" or "send" your existing post. If you hit your "back" button you'll probably lose your complete post. I know I've lost plenty on my iPad! It does what it wants to, not what I want it to do!! I think some of the other posters have said to type your response on a separate word processor program, like "word" or "notepad" and save it to your hard drive, then copy and paste it to the response,  just incase you do lose the  response you can still go back to "word"and recopy your typed response.  Does that make any sense ?

If you get ready to submit or preview your post, click on it and Select All, then Copy, post it in Word (I use notepad, but matters not), then save the Word file, I usually name it "Post" and save it to the desktop. So if your post goes blooey, just click Reply again and paste your text from Word back into the forum text editor and you're back in business. Am I missing what you're asking?

Or do what you say, and just start out typing the whole thing in some other text program and copy and paste it into the forum text editor.

If you get a PM popup, you better finish posting before you click on the PM, or your post will disappear into the ether.

Save submits the post, just as Send does after a regular post. The forum software should use the same term but they don't. If you lost one by doing Save, then it was just another one of those flukes when you lose one.

Like Rusty said, hitting "save" or "send" just submits the post. Usually if I lose a post, it was because I wasn't careful and hit the "back" button, reloaded the page or closed the window. If the connection has been lost, my browser says so. If typing up a lengthy post, I'd suggest doing it in a word processor. You can also highlight and copy your post before submitting just in case it doesn't go through.

This only happens when someone else finishes writing and sends their post while you are still typing. When this happens, you can read on that same page what the other poster wrote, and gives you the option to edit your post before sending/saving. If you click save, it posts what you wrote underneath the one that hit while you were writing it. If, after you read their post, you want to modify what you were writing, then click edit and change it before you send/save.

No when this happens to me is when I hit send then it says someone else was posting and gives me the options to modify or save , I was just wondering if the post goes some where that you can go back too later ,b ut maybe it post after you save ,, that I don't know ? Eric This Site Rocks!

Other write in word or other word processors and do the cut n paste thing

I just type in the reply BUT before anything else I highLITE the entire post and HIT Cntrl C (puts all the words into a cyber holding pattern)

Later when I send, post, ect... if it gets hosed up I can start over and in the body HIT Cntrl V (paste) and all is good with my blood pressure
