Yesterday my whole post vanished

I spent a hard hour on it. It was one of the most ambitious posts I had ever made.

When I clicked the post button, poof, a message appeared saying, "you did not enter a subject" I had forgotten to do this.

I could not return to op.

1. Backarrow should return you to to your OP when that happens

For the future, it's a good idea to type your post in a text program like Notebook, then copy and paste to DU. Whatever happens, what you've written is preserved in your notes.

2. I've also found that "previewing" a post locks it in from disappearing.

It's very frustrating to type a long post and view another open window then come back to a blank post.

I don't know if it's an iPad thing but sometimes the page refreshes and wipes the intended post.

Preview helps with this annoyance
