    Draft reply dissappears

    So this has happened more than once. Im typing a long reply. I want to re-read my reply from top down before submitting the post. I swipe my thumb up to the top or bottom of the text box and all of a sudden the page dissapears along with everything i typed and cannot get it back. It reverts me back into the thread i was replying to.

    Sounds like your using a mobile device. What are you using? Iphone, Android, other? Also what browser are you using.

    The Draft function is a third party plugin and as such is not presently supported by the mobile product, drafts can presently only be stored in desktop view.

    Im not trying to store anything. Im trying to type a reply to a thread and while typing in the text box, with a slip of the thumb I get booted back to the thread I was replying to and everything I typed is gone.

    i thought you'd get this warning if you select something out of the text box?



    I'm on an android.

    No you're not, how ever if you are trying to scroll through your own post content and pull to far it can trip a browser's drag to refresh function, which should still give you an alert that you're navigating away unless something is turned off in your browser's settings. Regardless, unless the site is still loading at the time that you're writing your post it shouldn't reload of its own volition.
