Default When I preview a post, it disappears

Hi, I have been having problems that when I type up a post and click on "Preview", the post disappears and my page refreshes and then I have to type my post all over again because it is gone. It has happened a few times now and thought that maybe it was my computer, but I just noticed in the CAS Favourites for the past week thread, that the OP said the same thing had happened to her and thought I should bring it to your attention in case there is a bug in the system.

{{hugs}} and thanks for all you do behind the scenes
Jocelyn

Hi Jocelyn!!

I just tested it and it worked for me. By any chance are you using Internet Explorer?

That is so cute!!! That picture is awesome at full size - hilarious.

Yes, I do believe IE is your problem. Try it with another browser, Firefox or Chrome (What I use) and also let me know if IE is updated to the most current version.


It really is not the best browser.

Hi Lydia,
I have IE9 with the latest updates. I am actually typing this reply in Mozilla which I have on my computer - I just hate using it because for some reason, it runs super-duper-slow and I have NO patience LOL! I can go and make a cup of tea inbetween opening up a new tab and loading a new website Will see what happens now when I preview this post in Mozilla.......
Well the preview worked just fine in Mozilla so now at least I know what it was - thanks so much for your help

Okay Jocelyn - I'm using IE 9.0.8112.16421 and I'm not having my post disappear.

Can you give me your version #? I might teach you how to do a screen recording to see if it will show what the problem is.

LOVE the kitty photo - that's what I look like early in the morning LOL!

My IE version is exactly the same as yours. Just doing a Preview Post with this message and will take a screenshot to see what comes up. And now, of course, the Preview Post is working. Will try a couple more messages with the Preview Post and see what happens. Maybe I should try it in a different Forum and see if maybe it is happening there rather than here? I know how to take a Screenshot so if I come up with anything, I will post it here. Just about to pick my DD up from school so I might be a little while.....

Just about to dash out the door, but I had a thought that when I had tried Previewing a post on another forum, I had included Hyperlinks in my post and that was when it just wouldn't work, so I just went back on the General Stamping Forum and did a post with a couple of links in helping someone out and did a "Preview Post" but it worked just fine. I was thinking that maybe it was something to do with the Hyperlinks? Hmmmm......maybe it's just one of those unexplainable things? Will keep trying Preview every time I post on SCS and see if I can re-create the error. Thanks for your help Lydia - you're such a sweetie .

Just a suggestion if you're going to keep trying it; just highlight all your post and copy it first - then at least it's on the clipboard ready to paste back again if it goes AWOL!!
