How do I find a saved or "missing" post in the Discussion Board?

Enter your Discussion Board forum. Next, find the drop-down menu that says Display. Click on the down-arrow, select Show All, and then click Go. You should now be able to locate your saved post. To edit it, click on the name of the post and then click Modify on the bottom right. To submit your post, click Submit to publish it.

Is there any way to recover threads sent to the Discussion Board if I receive an error message?

There is no guarantee that threads can be recovered if you receive an error message. If you receive an error message, click the Back button in your browser right away, and you might be able to see what you posted (there is no 100% guarantee because your browser only keeps pages cached for a temporary time).

What should I do if my Internet browser locks up when I try to post a reply on the Discussion Board?

This problem may be caused by a problem with the Java installation on your computer. See How to Install or Update Java for further information.
