I'm not seeing any options to save the post.   Is there any way you can redo what you did and take a screen shot of it before you hit save and   email it to Jim at Ghoststudy (the contact us email)  so we can take a look at what happened?

Not sure how you saved it. But you might try pasting to see if it's on your notepad

I don't know what happened but two times a small window came up on two separate occasions that was the same color as the forum background and said that it was saving the text and the  "post"  button disappeared so I couldn't post so I left the page and I assumed it was saved but wasn't.

I'm now thinking that I just might have to get my eyes checked!   ""lol".  :(

That's very odd. I've never had that happen befor. I suggest doing a virus scan.

Hello Kathy,

I think you were in "HTML" mode ... I see that all the time when the IPB "rich text editor" is off. It doesn't really seem to do anything though. There's just a little square sign that says saving text and it goes away.

I've never had it do anything though. If you look through the page code there is something like IPBS autosave but I haven't seen a way to get anything back ... sorry. :(

It maybe in you "Documents" folder saved as a web page, example  "ghoststudy.HTML".  The icon in documents may look like a white square with a blue  letter "E" on it, like the one in the picture.
