Whenever I preview a post and attempt to return to edit something I lose the whole post and have to start over again. What am I doing wrong?

I found that too. My solution (which I am sure is not the best) is to post it anyway and then use the edit button to correct.

Argh! I just realized I don't HAVE to go back to the previous page to edit! All I gotta do is click the edit button. Thanks, Barbara!

No, that's wrong, too. There ain't no edit button in preview. As Barbara said, submit the post then go back and edit, but I wish we could make corrections before submitting. Image

I don't understand the problem. When I hit preview, it shows the preview version at the top of the screen and the active post is below it so that you can just go back to your text and edit. When finished, hit preview again or just submit. You never leave the original screen.

Yep - that's the way I've been doing it, too.

Yeah. Ya got'ta scroll down to the text box to see your original message (scroll down after you see the preview). Then you can edit or post (scroll down some more for the Submit button. Does all this advice solve the problem, CopCop?

Most likely. I probably didn't scroll down to the edit window. Keep forgetting it's down there and still stuck in network54 mode
