    The text isn't stored at all except for whatever buffers your browser provides for that information.
    Yeah I do that but when you hit backspace while typing, thats where the real deal is . Once you go forward (back to the PM/thread page) all your text is gone.

    Wow. That was easy and to think this whole time I kept going back and retyping. Thanks! I'll put a note on mine in case it ever comes up.

    Yeah but the form (text) always disappears. Isnt that cookie based?

    Some browsers save text in fields more reliably than others. I use Firefox and I can refresh a vBulletin composition page without losing any text. Also some fields are automatically filled out based on what you're doing. If you're replying to a PM then the recipient is known and the title (Re: the previous title) and they're both pre-added. A new PM knows neither of these things so they'll be blank. Maybe it's a bit of that as well. .
    Oh yeah it could be that :P.

    Hey,

    Have you ever typed a really big PM or post and then hit the backspace button to delete some text and instead it went back a page? Then when you hit the forward button, its all gone and you have to type it over?

    I am sure so many have.

    What I was wondering is how come the PM title and recipent is saved but the PM message itself isn't? I find it strange :S.

    Thanks

    Yes! All the bloody time. It's incredibly annoying. In fact, it just happened to me about 2 minutes ago on this very site. Grrr...

    Yeah, you get a lot of sites out there that hate self advertising. You see some that even disable links in signatures. Thats why I gave up a long time ago using the method of finding the top forum sites that covered the same subject as your site, then adding your link in posts there to get traffic. They just get cheesed off and start complaining.

    Never works anyway, they just stop on the big sites.

    I do that on forums where I'm placed in "Miserable Users". I don't go that site anymore because the owner doesn't like it post your link when someone asks for free hosting. I understand that you can't blatantly advertise but if someone says "Where can I get free hosting" and I say "I offer free hosting at Xen Web - Free cPanel Hosting" My post shouldn't be deleted. What really didn't make sense is if someone else posted a link to my site it was fine because they don't own the site.

    Yeah exactly lol. Is there actually a way to save the post stuff in cookies or w/e so its not lost straight away?
