    It looks as if the saved content function is not working correctly....just complied a comprehensive post and lost it.Save content was showing "saved" 40 minutes before loss and had not updated since.

    Is there anything I can adjust or is it a fault with the software?

    That's the sort of thing that's sometimes sorted with a clear of cache/cookies for the site on your browser, Harry.
    Though I'm afraid I'm going to be completely honest and, while also apologising, say that for this week technical queries on this setup are becoming not worth the hunt.
    The post saving feature has been hit and miss at best. Works on the phone, but rarely on the site for me.

    Sorry for that slightly useless answer.

    Thanks Adam,I thought it was finger trouble by me and that I may have had access to determine the frequency of "saved content"

    All in all, frustrating after complying a lengthy post and losing it.

    I haven't lost posts on here Harry, but I always write stuff out on a word processor (Word for me) then copy and paste. At work I have to do most things online now and I got sick of losing stuff halfway through.

    Do not panic.
    At some point over the next 72 hours, maybe more like 48, and as a result of the generosity exhibited by donations, the dreaded CHANGE should be occurring.
    The forum will quite possibly pop off-line with no warning.
    It will then eventually return in a somewhat different form.

    Do not panic.
    This is not a result of systemic collapse.
    No Pterodactyls or rains of meteorites will be involved. Probably.

    Do not panic.
    Your Administrator recommends attending your nearest worthwhile public house and taking shelter there when the CHANGE hits. Your landlord will serve you calming beverages while CHANGE happens.
    It may take some time to complete.

    Do not Panic.
    You have been warned.

    Alright then, you can panic. Nobody else though.

    And can somebody find the 'special jacket' for Drew.
    He gets most uneasy over CHANGE.

    I knew it was all too easy for pooter-related stuff.
    For assorted sensible hardware reasons relating to ram and raid etc etc it's going to be a few more days. :unsure:

    Feel free to panic a little, though it won't do anyone any good.
    Still happening.

    You may not have noticed, but the process has begun a day or two ago.
    I shan't bore you with the details we're fed, just say that we're told testing and sorting is ongoing, so don't be alarmed if anything goes peculiar.
    No idea how long this will take before rebirth. Just that it's in process.
