"no post specified"; "no post mode specified"

Postby JDHURF » Tue Feb 06, 2018 2:53 pm

I've recently several times experienced posts I've typed and then clicked submit being lost before they're posted with some notice about "no post specified" and "no post mode specified," as reloading and clicking back is ineffective. It's happened two or three times with me and I believe I've seen at least one other mention of a similar issue by another poster.

This has happened for years now.

I always copy my posts before submitting.

Don't think I've ever had it happen to me.

Are you posting from mobile (3-4G) or from an actual internet connection?

There is a protocol in place that may cause site timeouts for mobile posting that is related to IP address changes.
