I'm sorry you are having trouble. It's a little tough in the absence of exact info to help but I suspect that you got an 'invalid security token" message which generally has to do with a login cookie issue. Can you try:

Logging out (hit the logout option up on the top navbar)
Close your browser
Restart your device.
Login again.


if that doesn't fix the issue, please let me know what device and browser you are using so we have dig in a bit more.

I have a similar problem with being "timed-out"
quickly while trying to add posts...don't get security
message but logs me out before I can submit
have all but given-up posting this site...fg

As you login, you may also which to check the box "keep me logged in". This means that on that device, providing it as your own pc/iPad/iPhone or whatever other device, you will remain logged in providing you don;t clear your browser cache.

Yes - tick the 'remember me' button. You must also allow cookie exchange with the site and if your virus/security settings are very high this may be causing an issue. we use cookies to keep you logged in at page changes. If you are not allowing them or purging them at page changes you get logged out every time you click around the site.

Thank you everyone .... I'm on my way to work so cannot follow through with your suggestions at this time.


This actually has been a re-occurring problem that keeps me from wanting to post much. Sometimes my posts get up just fine and the next time no luck.


Thank you,


Tom

I wouldn't waste time and disrupt everything you're doing by restarting your computer; it's standard advice used by tech people to create a known starting point, but rarely has anything to do with the problem. As Janet explained, there are issues with tokens expiring, which results in messages telling you that you can't do a perfectly valid action. Restarting the computer doesn't fix that, and guarantees that you lose your work unless you have saved to a file outside of the web browser.

The solutions to timing out if taking a long time to prepare a post are generally to
  • "Preview" occasionally to keep the session active, and to
  • select all the text in the compose box of the post (click anywhere in there and Ctrl-A in Windows) and copy it (Ctrl-C in Windows) before hitting "Submit"... in case you need to start again you can just paste (Ctrl-V in Windows) what you copied into a new compose window.
If you do the "select all" thing click somewhere to cancel the selection after you have copied it; if you don't, the next thing you type replaces all that stuff you saved, and you need to remember to "undo" (Ctrl-Z in Windows) before it is lost!
If you have copied a draft version of your post (Ctrl-C) then you can paste it into a text file on your computer in case things go really wrong before you're ready to submit, or in case you just want to finish it another time.
