In the past you could click on "view job details" and go easily back and forth between the screens, very convenient! Now, I will often start filling out the quote form, then want to go back to check job details. The problem is that the quote page expires, meaning that I then need to start quoting all over again. Is there any way around this please? Regards, Maurite.

Open the job in new browser window Feb 10, 2006

Hi Maurite,
There's a link to the job at the top of the quoting form - open this link in a new window, so you can switch back and forth.

HTH, Ralf

I open two windows Feb 10, 2006

one with the job and one where I qoute. It would be nice to see the job requirements while you qoute, though.

Not just jobs, KudoZ questions too Feb 17, 2006

Of course the question is on the top of the page, but if I want to check someone else's answer for reference while writing my answer, the same thing happens. Page expired.. That also means, that I have to start answering again, because I can't go back to my half-finished answer.

When I finish and send the answer, or even an agree (or else) to someone else's answer, sometimes the same thing happens. Occasionally if I click a couple of returns, I may get the question back, but not always.

I resorted to what Elvira is doing, open up another window, but it is wasting time, and annoying.

The whole thing stared to happen just over two weeks ago.

In the most current KudoZ design, after having clicked on "Answer" in order to submit your suggestion, you just have to scroll up to see all previous suggestions. No need to open a new window.
