I would like to ask the community if others are having this same problem: Quite often (It happened to me three times just last night and twice today) when I am writing a post or page on my site, if I hit the save draft button or the publish button a page will come up that says, "Are you sure you want to do this - please try again"! If I click on please try again I will be sure to lose my work or at least anything that hasn't been previously saved!

After losing a lot of content in the past because of this I am much more cautious to make sure I have a copy of my content either on paper or in notepad, but it so frustrating!

Last night after taking the time to format - bold, highlight and link, set my headings etc. I lost it all and had to redo it all not once but twice.

I do not think it is a theme issue, but I would appreciate any feedback!

Thank you, Christa :)

I have ran into that problem before and I would just go ahead with the change and if it was not the change that I had made, it was usually in the "revisions" side where I could just restore what I remember to have changed last.(helps because they highlight in red what's missing and green is what you changed/added) hoping this helps or that you find another way around this problem you're facing right now.

Oh wow! That's horrible Christa! I would hate to have done all that work and have to redo all that again

Have you sent in a help ticket just in case?

Maybe there's something else going on.

Understood, that's so weird!

It's a WordPress issue, not anything to do with the server and they can't see it. I just looked into this a bit further and found that it's not so much due to trying to save an older version of your work. For anyone interested, here is some information about this error, what causes it and what can be done about it - here says plugins, etc, can be responsible for the error.

Thank you Daniel, I will definitely be reading this. At this time I only have the basic plugins.
