Preview and Submit

Post by 5waldos » Tue Jan 09, 2018 4:24 pm

Just today I am getting a preview screen when I hit submit- and then when I hit submit being told that I can't post again so soon. Just a heads up in case this suggests something not good.

But not every time as it didn't do it with this.

You get a preview before you submit if there have been new posts since your last post. If you see a message about submitting too soon it probably means you somehow hit submit multiple times.

I know about new posts- it wasn't that. Just occasionally it comes up as a preview instead of a submit. But it is not getting worse so I will ignore it.

Not sure what to say. The site doesn't do that and I've never seen it.

It happens to me. My laptop occasionally does that double send thing. It's never a preview. It just means my post has already gone through.

Could it be because (I think) the Preview and Submit buttons are reversed as compared to the old Stew? I think that's the case at least, because I've almost (or actually) hit Preview instead of Submit a few times now just based on muscle memory. So maybe you thought you were clicking Submit, but you were in fact clicking Preview?
