Keep Composed Messages When Connection Is Lost

Oli Chance 6 years ago updated by jeff 6 years ago 2

Currently, if you're composing a message and the connection is lost, the message is also lost. This can be infuriating, especially when putting together something complicated, and especially because there are occasional short (and seemingly inexplicable) connection drops that can pop up, cause a message to be lost, and then disappear again.
Would it be possible to make Ryver keep the message even if the connection is lost?


Note that it shouldn't refresh and lose your message after really short disconnects, but after 30 seconds, we do issue a refresh on the view and it clears the chat text box.

We have started an effort to prevent loss of in-progress messages in these situations. We will start with chat messages, and then look into Comments and Posts.


We have completed this for chat messages.
