I'm in the middle of a session. I have not logged out. I'm in the middle of writing a response to a forum, but HubPages logs me out without warning or without a chance to save what I've written.
Not very smart, guys and gals!
We need a better way to do it. We need to have something that allows us to save what we're working on.
Some banking websites have a popup that warns that a log out will take place unless you click "OK."
If you want to bump us out of the current session to satisfy your arbitrary time limit, fine! But give us a chance to save what we're working on.
Even when I write it on Notepad first, I usually tweek it on screen. Your system doesn't allow this! I lose everything.
This has not happened in my experience, but I understand it would be frustrating.
Actually you can recover your last draft. The capsules auto save every few minutes so most likely at least 80 - 90% of what you wrote will be there.
Go to the empty hub you created. Open the capsule you were working on. On the bottom of the capsule (the base border) you will see a green dot and beside it you will see "recover draft", click on that and recover the time closest to when the incident happened. You might not get everything but some.
It is good to save your work every few minutes just like on your computer.
I am bounced to the log in page occasionally when working after midnight EST. I imagined that Hubpages triggered a system wide reset possibly after an update session.
Use "lazarus" add-on for firefox or for chrome browser. You'll be able to save the text this way between sessions even if you logout.
This never happens to me either. This probably has more to do with your browser's cookie handling settings than hubpages. I'd suggest checking there to make sure you don't have it set to automatically delete cookies after a certain time.
It's happened to me more time than I care to count. However, my posts are not as long as LoneStar's posts are and I don't need to worry about reposting what I was planning on posting, because truth is always easy to remember.
He is talking about forum posts I believe.
I haven't had that happen. I usually go to reply and then it tells me I must sign in but it's always before I post.
It's happened to me a few times... I just go ahead and log in and then hit the back button twice... It usually saves my post. I just hit the submit button then. I'm using Chrome if that makes a difference.
Anytime spent on the hubpages forums is dumb time...period. So the system is really trying to save your life.
HP is not the only site that does what you are talking about and it really makes me mad so I just write it into Open office. Then I copy and past it into note pad to take out any code put in there by Open office and past it into where ever I want it to go. I can take a week to write what I want this way and often do.

I've been told by a friend, that she was unable to edit more than 3 of her transfer lenses, that we are limited to 3 a day. Someone else told me that they were able to edit 25. My question is: which is accurate? And if...

I'm thinking, when my lenses all pop over, to unpublish them and work them at my leisure. I just need to know if they will be deleted after a period of time in non-pub status.

Gave it up and removed my remaining eBay capsules. I guess my hubs just aren't suited for them. Might give it another shot if the Buy It Now option becomes available though.
