Default Unanswered: Help - Screen Keeps erasing while writing post reply

Anybody having dificulty with your screen jumping back to previous page when in the middle of writing a reply to a post.
In the middle of writing a reply to a thread, the screen blanks and then goes back to the previous page, completely erasing everything I had just wrote! This happens quite frequently to the point I just give up!
I only have the one window open and the computer is new.

Any help is appreciated!

I don't know what to do with that problem, but I'd suggest to highlight everything (if you're typing a lot, use Ctrl+A) and copy it every few sentences just in case it bounces back unexpectedly. That's what I do sometimes

Also, the browser you're using might affect it. Try switching to another one, such as Safari or Firefox.

I'm sorry! It gets really frusterating, I know. It happens to me all the time. I think it is just because when you type, you hit the wrong key and it makes you stop typing in the box, you know, like when you click outside the box, you can't type. Then, when you press too many buttons, it goes back a page and deletes your message. That is why it does that for me. You may be having a different problem though. I am sorry you get to the pointwhere you simply give up...I am super determined lol. Once I had to retype a particularly long profile message over three times because of this. If you are typing a pretty long message to someone, I recommedfirst typing it in a word program then pasting it into the comment box so that it can't get deleted. Hope this helps, and sorry for your ordeal!

Only thing I can think is maybe your CTRL or ALT key is stuck ... you could inadvertently be telling the computer to go back a page or something (like CTRL+BKSPACE) or something ...

No, it is a problem with the WI site, and seems to affect Internet Explorer. Another discussion of it can be found here: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/....html?t=452979

No comment from anyone at WI about it yet that I have seen. I share your frustration.

Thanks, for the thread link. I had looked for one but couldn't find it. I think I will start typing some of my longer replies in a word program, and cut and paste it - to avoid any more lost replies!!

Unhappy Re: Help - Screen Keeps erasing while writing post reply

I think this whole site is having an upgrading issue right now. give it a few days it should be back to normal.
I cannot click the plus and get thread to open and read it, I must go to post a response to find out what it is about ...
and I cannot add smiles and stuff anymore.
I used to include graphics and stuff just to be cheery but no longer can, and after 2 months of trying to figure it out I have given up.

thanks for this, it has been some time and come to think of it it happened around the holidys and I also have problems with loading and it also does affect my browser whether it is IE or firefox. It seems as though the WW problems are now gravitating to anything webkinz related. And I do think the virus filled Ads are a big part of the problem. My virus alert comes up on a few items hare and in some posts here too. I think the ads on WW are the same cause of a lot of the problems. It's not like all those ads on WW are necessary, they are rediculous really. anyway I do enjoy this site & I hope the problems are fixed soon.

I have noticed that when writing, the site updates while I am posting. When I caught the words one time, it said it was saving my progress (I write very long post sometimes... ). My guess is that if you forward to the page, your text will be saved if somehow you are being sent back a page. It's one of the new features I have noticed on WI.

This is probably not your issue, but just on the off-chance it is it wouldn't take long to check:

Go to User CP > Edit Option ... towards the end of the page make sure the choice that says "show images" is checked.

Also when actually replying, make sure the "disable smilies" options is unchecked
