Is there any way posts/replies to the forum can be backed up without publishing?  Twice now I have lost extensive input before I could publish it.  Maybe my fat thumbs or something similar hit the wrong key before I was finished but many such products protect users from themselves with either automatic backups or at least have the option to do so manually.

Hi James,

 

Make the initial draft on your word processor; Microsoft Word; Open Office Writer, or whatever. Then copy your composition and return to the Forum Input in question, and finally, paste. This procedure gives you a little more time for checking grammar and spelling too.

Yeah, I figured that out.  Reminds me of the good ol' days of the sneaker net.  I guess I'm just buried in nostalgia because I remember my first word processor on a Commodore 64 had a periodic save function.

Whoa!  I just saved this one and I saw that it wasn't published.  Rather, there was a button to edit it (how I got back in) and another button to publish it.  Maybe this is an option that is available on a forum by forum basis?
