Subject: RE: Mudcat Troubleshooting
Janie...about your question of posts not appearing.

I, too, find this happening now & then. It may have something to do with the cache, or with Mudcat being in the middle of some process...etc...I really am not sure, but I know how to combat it - IF you notice right away! Usually, if the post does not 'take', you will not see the thread you posted to come to the top....now, if you hit 'back', you should see your post still there, as you typed it. Highlight it, copy it to the clipboard, then go forward and reload Mudcat! Then go to your thread and re-submit it. I have never had it fail when I do this.

(I use Opera & Firefox, and they retain the typing in past history pages until you close the browser)

Of course, if you actually compose your posts in a word processing program, like some smart folks, and copy & paste it to Mudcat, you'll have it without all the back & forthing...but I am never that clever.

I repeat...I do NOT know why this sometimes happens, but with a little care, you need not ever lose a long post again.
