instructables keeps saving Answered

hello, I have a current problem with creating an instructable. Right now the draft keeps saving. this means I can't go to another step but I can add photo's and text to the page I am currently on. If I create a new tab with instructables he sees only the beginning of my draft which is a shame since that means I need to make the instructable all over again and I was very far.

I am using chrome internet browser on a windows laptop

I was simply saving what I had wrote down and now it keeps saving for already an hour and I can't do a thing.

Do you mean it is saving nonstop, or just saving occasionally on its own? The editor does save your work periodically automatically, but you should be able to still go to other steps while you are working.

I meant it kept saving nonstop. But I found the problem. The problem was that the link said -1 as a step and not 1, as in https://www.instructables.com/''....."/step/-1. I don't know how this happend, but I solved it, by removing the -.

Hmm, that is very weird. Hopefully it's just a fluke and you don't have to worry about it again :)

I had some posting problems with my last Ible as well but not sure if it is related.
When I clicked on publish the Ible was saved as usual but it hang completely.
Did not check for the negative 1 in the link though, as the Ible was saved just before I simply reloaded the page and publish after that.
I guess it might be a timing problem.
Happens every now and then in the forums too, it takes forever after a button faded to see the corresponding action.
And in 50% of cases the posting is lost.
Not nearly as bad as it was a few months ago and only on rare occasions now.
