Rule of thumb:
On every forum, Internet questionnaire, website comment, or anything you write on the Internet, always select everything you just wrote and copy it to the clipboard every time before:
  • uploading, refreshing, or previewing;
  • always preview before posting.

Now, specifically on EBT forum: if you stay for a long time writing or pausing without previewing, you will get the following message when you click the Preview button:

The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.

Just click Preview again and everything will be fine.

I had the problem happen earlier today, so I was able to copy the exact error message. It didn't mention anything about invalid forms (although I believe I've had that message in the past). The forum just disconnected me and asked me to log in again. It took me to the login screen with the following message:
The forum wrote:You need to login in order to reply to topics within this forum.
Like you said, it isn't a major issue if you copy your post before displaying the preview.
It's just frustrating not to know where the problem comes from :?

Oh crap, that is frustrating indeed. :(

I know close to nothing about php (or anything IT for the matter), so I regret not being of help. I hope this gets fixed.

That is the sort of thing that may get fixed with a data clean in your browser (cookies and cache). It comes with the penalty of losing log-in's and other things that you'll have to re-enter.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll give it a try and let you know if that worked :D
