Save posts system when closing tab/mis-navigation click accidents

Post by Vanitas on Mon Nov 24 2014, 19:44

Not sure how to put it in words but you know how Microsoft word has this thing where if you are logged off or your computer turns off and you didn't saved your work (or in this case post) or you closed it by mistake and didn't save it (or in this case send it) but if you return to it, Microsoft word would have your document that you were typing still on the side as a recent document that had been typed before the system shut down? Well I want to know if Forumotion could fix a little problem with the posts, like if i close my tab but I just wasted 3 hours typing up something really long I just lost 3 hours of work and can't get that post back, could their possibly be like a system that allows to save unfinished posts this would REALLY come in handy for many people, including Forumotion themselves, it will help rage quitting and it will also help not having to do the entire 3 hour essay again, also if we could get a fix with the if I go to another page by clicking something by mistake and going back that whatever I typed would still be there. I know these suggestions may require lots of work from forumotion but this will definitely benefit many forumotion members and the forumotion staff themselves, I know they have had moments when they were typing up long paragraphs of things and then all the sudden inconvenience strikes and all their work is gone.

I know exactly what you mean, I've been there typing up an article or a guide and i accidentally click a wrong button and the page disappears. Now you have to start al over again.  So  think this would make sense. Voted yes.

I vote "yes"

I posted a user-side solution a few months back that uses cookies to save your post in progress. You can find it here : http://help.forumotion.com/t132804-automatically-save-posts-in-progress
