My summary sometimes disappears

    How come after I type in a summary, it disappears!  After I publish, sometimes there will be that tiny little "A" that tells me there is no summary.  I KNOW I did it.  What am I doing wrong?  After doing the summary, I see no "save" button.  Anybody????

      It happened to me recently too Mary, and I was so annoyed as I had taken care to write a good summary. Tried to do it again, but it wasn't as good as the first, that disappeared!

        Same here!  The second one I do is never as good as the first one.  Maybe 2uesday is right.  Maybe you have to hit enter.  I'll try that next time.

    Hello Mary, is it one of those things where you have to click enter after typing in the info? Not sure about that, as I cannot visualize how its done without it on the screen in front of me. Too tired, so maybe no help, hope you get an answer soon.

    Yesterday I had no such a problem.

    I had the same problem too for my hub on TV snacking. I wrote a great summary for it but when I checked my stats, I saw an A. I was really frustrated but I sucked it up and wrote another not-so-great summary, which also disappeared. I haven't attempted writing a summary again as yet. I've written summaries for most of my other hubs and they're fine. This has just been happening recently...

      I never had this problem until very recenlly.  I thought it was just me.  I haven't had two to disappear, though.

    Must be one of those "intermittent fault" glitches. Mine seemed to stay in place just fine on the hub I just published. I entered the summary and clicked "save unpublished" as it was the last bit of editing I was doing at that time.

    Looks like this thread should be in the 'report a problem' section, but I don't know how to move it.
    Oh and my internet is back fast today, can get on with editing!

      I think you're right, IzzM.  I should have done that to begin with.  Maybe the problem will be short lived, I hope.  I don't have anything to publish right away or I'd give it another try.

    I have had this happening to me in the last four days, I have been writing summaries and they vanish...I have become wiser now as I write them on G docs and then post them... I thought I was doing something wrong... well, looks like I wasn't the only one:/
