Problem Posting Replies

Have had several attempts to post replies fail:

- always logged on
- different posts
- iPad and PC

after clicking to post the reply redirect to log-on page with message - not logged on (wrong) or unauthorized to post?

Also noticed that the log-on frequently drops out when using the iPad.

Any ideas?

Could be the location you are trying to post from (ISP). When I am at one location with more security I can't post because the TF site is http and not https. But I have no problem posting at my home internet site.

I sometimes have that same problem when using my cell phone as a hotspot. Works fine on my home network.

I have had some problems w posts disappearing. Enough that I started copying every paragraph (or so) and then just repost if something happens. Never loose a post if I remember to do that.

Lately I’ve been posting on the i-pad w my legs crossed (left over right) and the right side of my hand kisses the keyboard and poof .. there goes whatever. Gotta tilt the pad a little (away on the right side and close on the left) so my hand clears the keyboard. I’m right handed.
Also w the i-pad I accidentally tap the space bar and frequently miss it so I have words run together. Usually separate them just before posting.

There is an Idle Timeout on the session. This will occur if you're drafting a large response or taking a long time to draft the response. Only submitting GET methods (travesing from page to page) or POST methods (submitting a new thread or response) will reset the Idle Time on the session.

If click "Post Reply" that is really a GET. The Idle Time starts ticking from there. If the session times out, you cannot POST the response.
