Bob you may be correct, but that question will only be asked if you have already clicked on the "Post Message" button and actually posted the message. Using your "Back" button to go back to the edit page (after you have clicked the "Preview Message" button) should not cause the "Repost Form Data" question to come up at all.
For anyone who is confused, there is a "Preview Message" button on the page with the form to enter your message. After you have entered your message you click on preview and the next page shows you a preview message so you can proof read it. The message has not been posted at this time, so you can use your "Back" button to return to the edit page for corrections if necessary. If there is nothing to correct, you simply click on the "Post Message" button at the bottom of the preview page to post the message.
After you click on the "Post Message" button on the preview page the message has been posted and another page will come up showing confirmation that the message has been posted along with another copy of the message and links to either go to your message or to the message board. At this time, if you click your "Back" button you the "Repost Form Data" will pop-up. Don't say yes or you will double post. Once you have actually clicked on the "Post Message" button and the message has been posted you cannot edit the message, so there is really no point in clicking your Back button.
Thanks posting that Bob, it is something I didn't think about, but will test it right now.
Good luck and good fishin'
