    I've never had this happen here before, but just now I typed out a large paragraph, saved it. ....

    . . .and it's NOT THERE.  It's gone, it's lost.  Anyone else having this issue today?

    Yes I have experienced this before. There was a problem with my internet connection, so when I pressed save, it wasn't saved. Try recovering draft.

    Not today, but I have had it happen. I feel the hubpages server may have been a bit patchy of late.

    I found the draft of mine and used that, so saved my article and just needed to update the bit that got lost. Gotta love the draft.

    This has happened to me several times - quite annoying!

    Sometimes just hitting the back button on the browser will work to find it again.

    I anticipate that with any onilne server thingy this issue. So I write in word, then copy and paste to here. Edit, add photos and boxes... So if it does happen I don't have to retype.

    It used to happen all the time with the online file system we had at work, so you'd just writie it in word and then upload, and when it took two or three tries you knew it was best! smile

    Once the same thing happened to me one other time!

    Happens all the time. I do the same as abbasangel. Saves having to rewrite. If the creativity is flowing and you lose what you have written it is often hard to get back into that same zone.

    I've not had that, but a few times I've clicked in the answer box, and there is my cursor ready to fire into action, started to type, I have to look at the keyboard to type, ok.  I'm typing away, I look at the screen and find myself with no cursor, no text, and at the bottom of all the other answers, whatever, on the page, I then go back to the answer box and start again and it is all right.

    I try to type my words in Word so I have a copy in case that happens.  Always save it in Word if possible.

    yes of course. And i find out that when you click save button you can see text ' loading'.At that time when you go back the content will not be saved. After clicking the save button wait some seconds. I hope it's the problem
