No, I haven't f(&^)(^ing posted the reply already.
Fairly often, maybe 20% of the time, when I click "Post" I'm told I've already posted the message.

Clicking the "Back" button returns me to the previous page with a blank editor window, and the message is not posted.

If I can remember to Control-A Control-C it's not a major problem, just annoying.  If I click "Post" a few seconds later it usually posts.

I haven't experienced that.  I have experienced getting the message and the post having gone through, though.

There's a "save draft" button at the bottom of the post box, and your post gets autosaved every couple minutes.   You can click that instead of copy/paste.  And if you forget to, you can at least get back a chunk of your original post.

You can find your saved drafts on your main profile page.  look for the "show drafts" link.  There's an edit draft button on each post in your list of drafts.  When you click that, your draft gets loaded into an edit box on the thread where you originally wrote it.  From there you can finish your post and post it.

I think this issue is due to being on my tiny personal server space right now.  Once we figure out what we need in the way of a server going forward, I'll get us moved to a more powerful shared server.

after posting it moves me to the thread topics list instead of showing my post in the current thread

'Return to topics after posting by default.' is unticked

edit: ticking the box seems to work

I haven't had that happen here, but it used to happen with my old wireless mouse when the battery would get low.

Cracks me up that Elkarte comes pre-set to the "drive by" mode, and "I want to actually have a convo" is an opt-in.
Just because you're unique doesn't mean you're useful.

It happened to me yesterday. It's definitely a thing that happens
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Sorry, I missed your question. Yeah, and it also happened today a couple times.
