Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Issues with redirecting to /register with big forms
Although the datamodel involved would allow me to break the form up to the point that it survives a redirect, it would be significantly more of a pain for the end-user.
My stop-gap solution for this problem has been to open a new window when submitting the form. If the instructor is still logged in, great. If not, the instructor can use the new window to log in, then hit submit again on the original form (which retains the data this way). Seriously kludgy, but at least we're not losing input. :(
