  • Frustration with replying to thread

    Has anyone else had this experience? I have logged in and tried to reply to Jeff (DEEPNHOCK) three times to thank him for his replies to my post about body shims on a '37 coupe-express. I get it all typed out and try to post my reply and get a message that says I am not authorized to perform that function and to refresh the page and log-in again and when I do that I lose all that I've typed. So now I'm logged in and get the little screen message thanking me for logging in and I type it all over again and the same thing happens. What gives?

    Tom,

    There was a thread on this same subject a day or 2 ago and now seems to have vanished into the woodwork or I am just overlooking it. There is a problem, as many have experienced it, including myself. One good work around, is to make your question or response to a thread on a separate word document and once you are happy with it, do a cut and paste onto your message screen and post it.

    Hope this help

              I agree. This is how I get there evry day. It is the fastest and easiest way to go on and off of the Forum, without the use of pass words etc.

                I have been kicked out too, once in a while. Happens elsewhere, too. My tip: if you have just composed an epic screed, whether here, or in some other venue, use your mouse to highlight the whole text, and hit CTRL+C. That copies your words to Clipboard in your own machine. If the posting operation goes awry, you can navigate back to the post window, and go CTRL+V, and paste them back in. If you have further problems, you can always open an instance of Word or Notepad, and go CTRL+V there and save your work more permanently for future use.

                  Thanks for the note...
                  I had to send my corporate laptop in for repairs, so I have been on an old PC (or motel PC) for the past few days..
                  All of the custom stuff we set up on out 'puters gets taken for granted...until it's gone
                  I made sure to back up my stuff before sending it in...
                  It just arrived back a half hour ago.
                  Ahhh, to have my trusty old laptop back again....
                  Happy happy Joy joy?
                  Nope... It went in Windows XP, and came back Windows Seven.
                  I have to learn everything all over again, and set up my favorites, and shortcuts...
                  My... How spoiled we get with the old school stuff...Like computers...and Studebakers
                  And I am not keyboard spastic again...searching for the delete ket and the backspace key

                    Also, when going from your "favorites", make sure you have checked the box, on the forum's upper right corner, just below your log in name and pass word, which say's: "remember me". Which should keep you logged in for maybe 2 to 3 + months at a time, until the forum server clears everything out.

                      Whenever I'm going to make a lengthy, or a complex technical reply. I use the mouse to highlight the entire text and click 'EDIT' on the toolbar, and select 'COPY' -BEFORE- hitting 'send' or 'enter', on any document or post that I consider important, or that have invested much time in the composition of.

                      I've learned this the hard way, after having complex text that I had spent 2 or 3 hours in composing, forever disappear into the ether.
                      Once it is in 'copy' you can retrieve it as many times a needed by simply clicking 'paste'. (but be aware, highlighting and copying anything additional will remove all previously copied material)
                      I seldom use the Clipboard function , but understand it is a more permanent form of retaining ones work, and doesn't tie up the 'copy' and 'paste' function.
