Where Are My Drafts?

#1 Postby raikenclw » Fri Apr 14, 2017 7:39 pm

After losing a long post to a time out, I started re-creating it and - when interrupted - chose "Save draft."

And now I can't find the draft.

Grrrr! Arggh! :fist:

If you've got a saved draft, you'll see a Load button when posting to the same thread.
Not sure how long it remembers drafts, though.

Well . . . I was starting a new topic thread, not posting to an existing one.

I suppose that means I need to start over. Again.

This time, I think I'll type it out on my notepad, then cut and paste this into a forum post.

I don't remember losing stuff like this before. Do the forums now have a shorter "drop you for inactivity" window?

Click on your name in the top right corner of the forum window, and go to User Control Panel.

That takes you to the UCP, and from there on the menu on the left will be the option "Manage Drafts."

On that panel you can edit or delete drafts.

You can also go back to the thread where you had a saved draft and when you hit Post Reply, one of the options that will show up is Load Draft. That will show what appears to be a blank reply window, but if you look towards the top you will see your save draft. Click on it and it will load.

In the user control panel you will find a option manage drafts.
