Default Problems when using forum

Hi Folks, Not sure where to put this, moderators please feel free to move it.
I have an intermittent problem using the forum, I don’t have this problem with any other sites. I am using an ipad with the latest software version 15.5. The problem I have is when replying to a post or a private message when I hit send it asks me to sign in. I am already signed in, when I sign in again the message I have just typed has disappeared. This is frustrating as I then type the message again, hit send and get the same message to sign in. I can get around this by restarting my ipad but wondered if there were any suggestions I can try.
Sorry for the long winded message. Norman
Forgot to mention when using my workshop PC windows 10 I never have this problem.

Try ticking the "Remember Me" box when you log in.

As a matter of course I copy messages before hitting send, especially if they contain laboriously transcribed meter readings. It occasionally happens with any browser that you get kicked back to the previous page for any number of technical reasons, so it's handy to be able to paste the message instead of giving up. I know it's a workaround, but I don't know why you're having your specific issue.

One other thing to try is to open the forum homepage in a new tab, leaving the one with your message and not-signed-in error in the previous tab. Sign in on the new tab, then try sending your message in the previous one. As far as the browser is concerned, you'll then be logged in and may not lose your message.

Thanks for the suggestions, I have tried ticking the remember me box but that doesnít help. I will try the other suggestion.
Itís frustrating when I have replied to someone in detail then it gets lost. Next message is shorter, I lose it again then we are on a one line reply which doesnít really say what Iíd like. Itís very intermittent and very frustrating. Thanks again, Norman

The 'remember me' box won't work if you have got your browser security settings set up so that cookies aren't retained for logins.

Unless I am just making a quick post of a couple of lines I always compose my posts in Microsoft Word first and then copy and paste.
Apart from the advantages regarding losing the post it's handy to be able to compose the text and spell check it.
