Did someone leave the forum door open?
« on: August 03, 2013, 05:01:11 pm »
There's a sudden DRAFT in here... ;D   

I have added/installed a new modification to the forum which allows us to "save drafts" of our replies/quick replies.  When you start a new post, you will see the different choices "Post" "Preview" or "Save as Draft".  If you save a draft you will be greeted with a message like this:

Quote
"Saving a draft will retain the basic post details (title, text, icon), but not attachments, polls options or calendar events.  Are you happy to proceed with saving this draft?"


You click "OK" and you get this message/screen: 


Quote
Your post has been saved as a draft

The contents of your post has been saved as a draft, and will be accessible from the Show Drafts area of your profile.

The Show Drafts area is located:  Profile>Profile Info>Show Posts...>Drafts

Now is there a way to get it to automatically save to draft?  I've composed posts that took too long that ended up being lost since my login timed out.  I suppose I could hit save to draft a few times instead, but hey, worth asking.  ;)

Whenever I've had the timeout error, I never lost the message — I just tapped the post button again

Interesting, because I use preview a lot before I hit post, I recall losing the post due to being timed out and hitting preview.  I'll have to let another post timeout to test it again then.

Ah, I rarely use preview — mainly because I know I can modify the post if needed.
