In the past few days have been encountering a rash of "the site had problem & it had to reload" messages.

Consequently, this has caused an increasingly irritating loss of stuff as I'm writing it.

(Waddaya know, it just happened again :mad: )

Also, when working on an old PC with "antiquated" versions of Firefox and I.E. nevertheless was vouchsafed a version of this site that had the "Restore" feature that allayed some of the above-described frustration.

For whatever reason, it isn't available when the BB is accessed via iPad & Safari.

Why?

Have figured out the reason for the constant reloads: it's Safari.

As D. Boon sez: "She's dead to me now."

It would still be nice to know how come the "Restore" feature isn't available, however... :wave:

Well, turns out that Safari had its problems, but there are definitely issues related to the site.

Have already had a few reloads using what I assume is Chrome, and after they happen a general freeze descends on the ability to type in the post field.

Signing out helps.

Not sure if it's a cookie issue or not (things were going swimmingly until I accepted), or with ads, or with images... :well:

So...

It's now 2019.

Anybody care to offer some insight as to why there is no "Restore" function when dealing with the forum interface via an iPad?
