    Default DID YOU EVER START A POST, THEN 'POOF, IT'S GONE'?

    I just discovered - when you start a post . . . and if you're like me, you get sidetracked or want to refer back for some tidbit of info . . . and you leave the post . . . then when you go back, IT'S GONE! That long post explaining some 'vital' info . . . 'poof' it's gone!

    Well, I just discovered as you type a post there's a periodic msg saying "auto saved" (duh . . for a smart gra'ma like me, should have figured this out long ago) - so, after the 'poof, it's gone, there's a msg saying "Restore Auto Saved Content" 'n when you click on it, your 'long post' is restored!!!

    As I'm typing this, I'm thinking "how dumb am I" - most likely you all have known this all along! So, instead of abandoning this post in hopes no one knows I'm such a slow learner, I've decided to JUST BE ME in case there's someone else who is a slow learner too!!!!

    ~can't get blood from a turnip ~~your neck o'the woods
    ~You're just playing possum (pretendin' to be asleep when you didn't want to get up n' go to school)

    Well, duh, I didn't know that. Thanks for the post. I've seen the auto save pop up, but had no idea how to retrieve it...I just gave up and chalked it up to...OH Well.

    Like you, I've come to love that "Auto Restore" feature. It's a goodie, for sure.

    Auto Restore........saves a lot of wear & tear on our brains! I was very happy to find that feature!

    Hey "B" that's good to know because I often have my posts disappear. Guess we do learn something new everyday and for once it was something helpful. Thanks

    Ok, help me! How did you get your "B" on your signature to be so big and bold. I can get mine entered but now I see its small and I can't figure out how to edit it??

    I find it's better to post the message even if you're not finished. I think there's about a 30 minute window before you can no longer edit.
