    I'm trying to post my first ride report, but not having much luck. When I click 'Preview Post' I don't see a preview of my post that I just spent so much time on. Instead, I am taken to a new screen where I am prompted to sign in. Once I sign in, my post has vanished. I thought that maybe I 'timed out' the first time because I took so long to write the post. So the second time I hustled through it only to be met with the same result.

    What am i doing wrong?

    Also, for long posts, it pays to write it out in a text editor or word processor first. Then you can copy/paste it to the forum and you won't lose anything if you have problems like this. This little trick has saved me much frustration over the years.
