Topic tags/keywords: draft saved recover

How does one access the post drafts that are saved? I see there is a notice at the bottom of every post composition stating when it was saved, but where and how do you get to it to recover from an error?

I think you only get an hour to change them. I am not sure if it saves them more than an hour. I know for the blogs, it will only let you work on one at a time (You can’t start another blog post – even with a different heading, if you have one pending) I will be watching this post for better answers.

I am pretty sure LJ drafts are saved locally in your computer’s memory and hang around indefinitely (appear when you open the page)... unless you close your browser or reboot. Then they are gone.

Open what page? If you are on the thread you are posting to, what page are you going to open to get back to before an error?

Draft is automatically displayed when you revisit the New Project page (or New Blog etc.) – until you post it… then it’s discarded.

Thanks Martin. Guess it isn’t quite like the back up button on Word ;-))

I just figured it out or re-remembered it ;-) If a post disappears, hit the reload button and it should reappear. This happened to me a day or two ago because my big clumsy fingers accidentally highlighted the entire post and the next key stroke replaced it. You got to be quick! My ‘puter is resaving every 30 seconds. I’d sure hate it if it saved the blank screen before I reloaded which is apparently what happened to me the other day ;-( I thought I was doing the wrong thing and not finding it, but apparently it saved before I clicked the reload ;-(

Hope this saves some of you a little grief ;-)
