Rapid logging out

ElderDad's picture

While I understand there is a problem with people logging in and staying logged in, the current automatic logouts are a problem. I just spent about an hour working on a response to a post. When I clicked on "Preview," I was informed I wasn't authorized to post. I had been automatically logged out and didn't realize it. I lost all of my work.

Temporary solution

While they get someone on this, I suggest this temporary solution:

If you write a response, especially a lengthy one, use Ctrl-A (select all) and then copy the post BEFORE clicking on "Preview." When you click and preview and lose your data, then get the "not authorized" message, log back in and go immediately back to the reply. Past your message and "preview" it again. It will probably go through on the second attempt.
