Hi, I am becoming very annoyed with myself over the duplicate postings that turn up when I submit my reply's. I'm sure it's my lack of computer savy, but when I click on the submit button I wait for the screen to return to the topic. Then when I go back to the topic list my computer tells me the page has expired. I click on the refresh button and then am returned to the topic I replied to and there is a second copy of the original note. What am I doing wrong. Jess

This has to do with Internet Explorer. When you hit the refresh button it is resubmitting the information to the database.

Jess Cone I have the same problem. Here is what I do:

1. When I get the "page has expired" message I hit the blue back button on Internet Explorer.
2. This will take me back to the message I was typing. I hit the blue back button again and it will take me back to the thread I was responding to.

Don't hit the refresh button, use the blue back button on IE in the upper lefthand corner.

This will solve the duplicate posts.

An easier way to get back to where you were should be to right-click the back button or click on the down arrow next to it, if there is one. Either one should allow you to go back as many pages as you want with just one selection.

Thanks everyone. All of these suggestions have been helpful. I'll try putting them into practise and see what happens. Like right now.
