Dialup Problem (3 posts)

    I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but there's a bug related to slow connections. If you're on a slow dialup connection and you try to quickly edit an existing page or post, you can lose part of what's already there if you save before the page is finished loading. In other words, if you want to quickly uncheck a tag or make a minor change to something at the beginning of one of your posts or pages and you go ahead and make that change as soon as that part is available to access on the edit page and then click the save button, the editor will go ahead and save whatever part of that post or page is currently loaded. Whatever part of the post or page that wasn't finished loading when you clicked the save button, will be lost and saved over.

    I'm also on dial-up, and I'm sorry, but I'm not having that problem. =/

    I admit that it's slow sometimes in the Write => Post section, and saving or editing seems slow and takes awhile...

    But, what I usually do is, copy/paste whatever I have written in the "Post" window, into a blank MetaPad, or NotePad file..and go from there..

    And, I *usually* write up first, as a "Draft", and then preview it in the "Preview" window.. then when I feel everything is good to go.. I hit publish..

    I hope this helps as well. =)

    Also, as an example: Quickly trying to put a check in the checkbox for something, *after* you hit publish, isn't going to cut it. You have to do it the way you want it, *before* hitting Publish..

    For me, it's just a matter of getting in too much of a hurry for a minor edit. It only happens on long posts. If I give it a couple seconds more until I'm sure the whole thing is loaded in the edit window, then there's no problem at all.
