Ticket #21263 (assigned)

Opened 3 years ago

Last modified 20 months ago

Tracker item text lost!

Reported by: zhnmju123 Owned by: ctsai
Keywords: ENGR NF-2643 FORGE P2 Cc:
Private: no



I have reported this in the past, but it is still unsolved. This problem == once again == massively killed my productivty!

When entering a message into the issue tracker while my webbrowser says I am logged in (whoever is to blame here, I don't care!!)
and I press "update" to send the message, the login page comes up requesting name and password!! And guess what, all my text is gone, because a new page is loaded!

Please! Do something about it! Show a popup with a warning, that the content will be lost; don't open a new page, but request login from the same page.... whatever!

It is simply not acceptable that I have to remember to press "ctrl + C" on my text each time I enter messages on sourceforge because they may become lost!! This happened too many times already!
And please don't blame it on the browser buffering the site status! I really want a solution, it doesn't matter who messed this up!

I'm escalating this to our engineering team here: https://sourceforge.net/p/allura/tickets/2643/

However, be aware that the team may opt not to address this for classic SourceForge project as almost all development has moved to the SourceForge 2.0 Beta project at this point.

If I have to migrate the project, this is fine with me. Thanks for addressing this!
Best regards, ZenJu

I just wanted to pass this tip on that one of our devs mentioned. He uses this browser add-on to avoid that exact situation: http://lazarus.interclue.com/

I haven't tried it myself yet (I just installed it), but our dev uses it and it works for him, so I figured I'd pass on the tip.
