Earlier this morning I was tried to answer a question about how to transfer wordpress.com subscribers to a self-hosted wordpress blog. I was trying to be helpful. After I typed in my post, I clicked the Post button and I was re-directed to a new page requesting that I log in. Everything that I had just typed in was lost! This was very frustrating. There was nothing to indicate that I had been logged out. My username and the 'log out' link were visible.
On other web sites in this same situation, I've seen an alert pop up that gives the option of "leave page and loss everything" or "stay on page." Can this be investigated and fixed if necessary? For the web site to have behavior like this doesn't seem professional and doesn't encourage people to be helpful. Now that this is happened, I can try to avoid the situation, but it will likely happen to others.
I reluctantly decided to retype and submit my post:
Thanks for listening.
