HTML5 Tip: Using localStorage to Retain Form Data when Sessions Expire
Most of the websites I design have a pretty nifty Content Management System which allows my clients to edit a majority of their website content. One of the biggest problems I've been trying to address over the past few years has been the short session limit on some of the shared hosting plans we use. It seems like the ISP's only allow a maximum of 30 minutes when using session management. 90% of the time, this is fine, but if my client is in the middle of an edit and then takes a phone call or leaves the computer, it's possible the session will expire and then they will lose the form data they had entered.
