Saving post as draft

After having spent nearly an hour constructing and editing a post (new thread) using a mobile phone, with links and photos, just to find out it disappeared like a fart in to Sahara, I do wish CF would save every post as a Draft in a similar way as an email app does until the post is actually posted...

Re: Saving post as draft

I'm sorry you had this experience and know how frustrating it can be. One suggestion I have is to actually use your e-mail program for drafts... then copy/paste into the forum reply editor. The forum reply editor should save your post text for a while but if your internet connection is reset while writing that text may be lost. This especially a problem on mobile and you may never notice the temp disconnect by your provider while writing...

That's great advice Janet, thank you so much!
I talk about email draft and don't realize this method myself, doh!
I will try to remember next time, thank you again.
