Lost data during posting

In a NEW post in a forum (Only happens in a new post and only the FIRST time you try to add topic. It does not happen if you edit a second time)

If the title exceeds 125 charaters and when you go to post (Add Topic) the system returns an error "title too long for post"  :( The forum detail is then LOST completely when you press the red go back half moon arrow.

Fix
Extend the field input value to the maximum length of the entry box OR Reduce the length of the entry box to the max allowable characters

According to my tests in a few browsers, the back button won't cause the form data to be lost. However we're aware that this can be a problem in some situations, and we've planned some substantial system-wide improvements for this kind of thing in version 4. Unfortunately it's too much to implement in patch releases.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
