Quote from: brynn on January 14, 2018, 07:00:17 AMHi again,I've run into a case where this mod is not saving the message. I have a 60 second delay on posting, to help prevent spam. But I also have a member who is part roadrunner.So if the next post is made in less than 60 seconds, an error message is displayed, and the message isn't saved. Would it be possible to have the message saved, in this situation?I don't think this would allow spammers to obfuscate the time limit. Even though their message would be saved, they still would not be able to post for another 60 sec. But yet my speedy members could retrieve the message which they had previously composed.I looked through Permissions, and I might have missed it, but I didn't find where this might be changed for different membergroups. That would actually be my preferred solution. Because really, spammers are always newbies. I've never seen an established member suddenly turn into a spammer. But afaict, it doesn't exist. Not unless it's using some language that I don't comprehend.Specifically, this option is Admin Panel > Forum > Posts and Topics > Post settings > Time required between posts from the same IP address.The Sisyphus version is 2.0.1. SMF just upgraded to 2.0.15. Let me know if any further info is needed.Would this kind of change be possible for this mod?Thank you very much
QuoteI don't think that it's easy to do in mod, because the form is already sent when the required time is checked.
QuoteI believe that this is the wrong behavior of the SMF itself. In this case, it should show an error and the message text should be restored, not dropped.
QuoteYou can turn on this option, then when you return back after error, the text you typed will remain in the form from browser cacheAdmin - Configuration - Server Settings - Cookies and Sessions - Allow browsers to go back to cached pages
QuoteTurning this on will decrease the bandwidth your forum uses, and make it so clicking back will not reload the page - the downside is that the (new) icons won't update, among other things. (unless you click to that page instead of going back to it.)

I just know what I observe when I click. Do you mean since the Post button was clicked, the message is gone and you can't get it back?
QuoteQuoteI believe that this is the wrong behavior of the SMF itself. In this case, it should show an error and the message text should be restored, not dropped.Are you saying this should be a bug? Or more of a non-existant new feature? Or other?
Quote from: digger on January 18, 2018, 07:14:29 PMMessage is considered to be sent when the Post button was clicked. Mod doesn't know what happened next, message already sent in any case.It's a non-existant feature. Message shouldn't be dropped if a not crirical error occurred.

I understand that this functions in the event of a browser crash but our problem has been people getting logged out and forgetting to save their work, then when they log back in, it's all gone. Should this also work in that scenario? Thanks.
