Can you please explain more about the posts that were "just gone for no reason"? We are unaware of this issue and would like to follow up.

Also, please describe the auto-save feature you are looking for.

Thanks for your feedback!

Example; when I am in the middle of sending a message on Facebook I can't leave the page until it is sent. Not really an auto-save function, but very useful. Facebook asks me if I really want to leave the page without sending the message. When I am in the middle of posting here I sometimes manage to close the tab/leave the page prematurely

On occasion I have pressed the return key, and found my text still there, but usually it isn't Would be nice of the forum could remember your text for a short amount of time. One minute would do the trick in my case.

If I am writing a long post I usually save it on my desktop before clicking "post reply".

I don't know if Jinadaze has the same or a different problem.

^ Oh I understand what you mean. My computer mouse has a mind of its own and it likes to click on things multiple times so sometimes it exits out of thread I'm posting in and I have to start over. A feature that saves your content if you are still in the process of posting would be helpful!

Another example: When you are typing an email in gmail the system auto saves your work every couple of minutes. Is this what you guys mean?

^Any solution that will reduce the amounts of posts lost would be appreciated by me I do like that gmail feature I don't know what would be easiest to execute on tfs.

Having lost posts in the way you've described, I agree that anything that can help prevent this would be a good feature! I am not sure what would be the best approach on this platform, either, but I will make sure the developers see this conversation so they can determine if it's something we can do.

Agree with eizhowa and heelscatchfire, I was thinking the same. But one time my post was lost even if I just went from the 'post quick reply' to 'go advanced' option. Don't know what happened in between (and it was only once).

(Sometimes my browser go crazy with automatic reloading of all tabs and at the other times I don't bother/forget to connect my laptop to adapter when the battery is low, so it turns off automatically, but I didn't mean such issues, I am fully aware that's my fault. )

The tech team listens and has provided a solution!

I added some auto-save functionality.

It will save contents of anything posted in text areas. It does not warn if you are leaving page. If you navigate away from page your text will be there when you return. It will even work if you close browser, provided you don’t have clear cache on exit/startup enabled.

Requires:
Browser Caching enabled and adequate local storage. The amount of text it will save is only limited by the size of your cache. Default settings on browsers are good.

How to use: return to the page
I tested it by writing a response here. Then I closed the browser window without posting it. When I came back to this page, the response was still there. Try it!

That is the system we are using (vBulletin) ... and they do not intend to change it in the foreseeable future. They must choose the features that work the best for our very, very busy forum, so not all features have been enabled because some of them slow the forums down.

I hope this helps you understand some of the limitations.
