Forum keeps switching me away from my message

Postby AlanF » Wed Jun 11, 2008 4:19 pm

The forum software keeps periodically switching me out of the message I'm composing and taking me to the home page. I found this very frustrating and thought that I was losing messages. Today I realized that if I use my browser's "back" button, I can return to the message I was composing. I can imagine that you'd get a lot of frustration from people who don't realize that -- and even from people who do!

I'm on a Windows Vista machine using Firefox.

I also get that - not only when writing messages, if I leave the browser open on a forum section when i come back it's back to the main page

david and i had a little chat a few hours ago and we decided to just completely remove this dodgy so called SEO mod, hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.
