I have just posted to the Vodafone undertaking proposal... thread, only to have the post go into the ether and disappear, with the browser then ending up at http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp  What happens is: I type my reply, I click on Post Reply button, the browser then reloads at the forums link. If it helps, I used the back button and reposted about a minute later.  This has happened 2-3 times in the last two weeks.  Has anyone else noticed this?  I'm using Chrome on Vista.

Yes, have seen that many times in the past which is why I try my best to remember to CTRL-A CTRL-C in the field before tabin to hit post reply.

Yes, it happened to me yesterday, which is why I also do the CTRL-A / CTRL-C routine, and have done ever since joining Geekzone. It is not the only forum this happens on, so I have got into the habit of always doing CTRL-A / CTRL-C before posting on any forum. Saves a lot of frustration and retyping!

Could you folks please clear you cache and delete cookies. Then try using the forum again.

I assume you are not talking about the BAD WORDS error (which should have an error message)?

I don't seem to reproduce this problem here but would be good if people could report exactly date/time so I can try and see if there's anything in the logs. Seeing we generate a few hundred megabytes of logs every day it's hard to find anything without a bit of more information.

@freitasm

Probably applies more to asp.net than classic asp but sounds like session state playing up.

Is the create reply page is making use of in memory session state?

Something like an IIS worker process being recycled (for whatever reason) would cause session state to be lost.

Alternatively double check the session state timeout isn't set lower than forms authentication timeout.


Go Hawks!

I've definitely had this happen in the past - I assumed that there was something broken with my system and moved on. To be fair, it hasn't happened in a long, long time.

@freitasm: I've never had an error come up, the post just simply disappeared.

Hmm

At ~3.30pm today I'd had several tabs open for different threads. I replied to one of them.. closed that tab on the next tab spent ~1min reading the thread then hit reply, spent about ~1min writing a reply and then hit post reply... and I got redirected to login.

So my login session expired for no reason that I can see.

I suspect if auto login was enabled I might have seen the reply vanishing people are talking about.

I see one single 500 error today at about 3:34pm so it could be related to your request. I have changed pool recycling to happen once a day only at a fixed time (12am) to eliminate any other occurrences of this being related. I have also enabled Fail Request logging for 500 errors so if this happens again we will be able to see exaclty why.
