Just wondering if I can start a post and save it somehow to come back to later and finish.
I would say yes.
When I start a post and have to stop it sometimes will say draft saved. not this time so ??????? Opps there it is.
Yes it should save what you typed. Try it on this topic. Start a response and go away from it and come back, what I typed is still there.
But, once you close the page is it gone? I started a new post a couple of days ago and didn't get it finished, is it gone?
Exactly, I've noticed that too. Just not sure where the draft lives, if it can be accessed again or for how long it stays there.
At the bottom of all the posts there is a box to respond. Likely the box that you typed your response in. If it has saved, it says draft saved, then what you typed will still be in the box when you come back to the topic.
Maybe more specificity would help. The other day I was at work and between orders I was working on a post over in "Let Me Tell You About My Trip." At the end of the day I said "Oh Well..." and shut down the browser. Now I'd like to work on it some more and then post it.
Go back to whatever topic that was. Scroll to the bottom of the page where you type your response. What you had typed should still be there.
It wasn't a response, it was the start of a new thread.
I don't think new threads are saved. I just tried it and it doesn't appear that you can go back to those, only a response to an existing topic/thread.
I may have figured it out. If you hit the save icon then it should still be there.
I just tested it out. It seems that it appears automatically, just like a response. It remains in the text box.
I also tried to pull up the test draft in a different sub-forum and it did not appear so it has to be the same sub-forum so it would seem.
So if I would have clicked on the save draft icon it would have saved it somewhere for retrieval.
Incidentally I've been wondering about this anyway so now there's an answer out there if anyone is wondering the future.
