Drafts posts and private messages

Post by admin » 30 Mar 2008

The new forum software has a feature which allows you to save draft posts in order to work on them and post them at a later date.

The forum settings limit the editing of new posts to 30 minutes allowing you to correct and add to posts instead of adding additional posts after them. Where new posts by the same author are added afterwards, generally they will be merged into the one above to make one.

To make a draft, write a new post or reply in any forum or on any topic and when you are finished but do not want to post it yet, click the save button.

You will find your drafts, here;
  • control panel > overview > manage drafts
To continue to edit but not publish that draft, go;
  • control panel > overview > manage drafts > choose draft > click view/edit
To retrieve draft in order to publish it, go;
  • control panel > overview > manage drafts > choose draft > Load draft > click preview or submit
The post will be published automatically in the forum or topic that you first chose made it.

In order to take general notes to use later in posts, please use the private message in the same manner by making and saving a drafts there.
