You can be typing along and every once in a while the word "saved" will appear. Then if you run into an error after hitting Submit, which most likely is the forum doing scheduled maintenance, clicking on the back button will return you to your saved post instead of a blank field.

I use the right click of the back button to find and return to my original post.

There must be something my thick head isn't understanding. "You can be typing along and every once in a while the word "saved" will appear." I've never seen that. Is there a setting or something to get that? Z, when I hit the back button after hitting submit and get the error message, my reply box is blank without my post.

This is the sentence you are not understanding, or perhaps skipped over.

"It is a vBulletin forum feature, just like the infamous Like button."

It needs turned on or activated on "their end", not our end. It is either operational or it isn't. And here it isn't, but there is nothing you or I can do about that.

I too got the error notice. So I just minimized the post.

Try doing a right click on the back button. It will give you a list of where you've just been. There isn't a lot of information there, but you can usually figure it out by trial and error. I often find that my message is still there and can be edited and posted. I haven't lost a post lately that I can remember.

I also haven't had a Data Error message when posting. It only occurs occasionally when I click on a thread to open it to a new message. When it does that it usually doesn't last very long before I can access the thread normally.

It did it again this morning when I sent a post but it didn't lose the post as it was doing the other day. It had put it on the thread.

So you just hit the back button without cursing and kicking your tower?

Ooops.
