I solved the mystery of the disappearing comments! I know people have had this problem. They will get ready to respond to someone else’s comment in a heated debate. Get some thoughts typed up, and find some sources. And due to some weird session timeout setting or something, POOF… When you hit post the whole comment you spent 20 some minutes typing up is gone. Lost in the tubes of the Internet forever.
Well to solve the problem all you simply have to do is hit preview before you post a comment, and you will never have a lost comment again. At least it works for me. If that doesn’t suit your fancy, then there are a couple other tricks. Before you click post, click once in the box where you type up your message, then hit the keyboard keys, “Ctrl + A” (don’t hit the plus key, this means hit the Ctrl key, and while you have it pushed down hit the letter “A”). This will highlight everything in the box. Then hit “Ctrl+C”. On a Windows machine, this will copy everything you just highlighted to the clipboard of Windows. If the comment disappears when you click post, just scroll back down to the comment box, click inside it with the mouse, then push “Ctrl+V”. This will paste the entire comment you copied and nothing is lost.
The other secret, that comes from DOF, is to type up your post in notepad (Be sure to use only notepad, Microsoft Word will put in a bunch of formatting behind the scenes that can screw up a webblog), then copy what you typed in Notepad and paste it into the comment box. This assure you will lose nothing as well.
Well the choice is up to you. Happy Blogging.
