Can you please add a save as draft feature for blogs. This would allow for blogs to be created over time then released when ready. Thanks.

As others have said. about losing blog typing when a line goes dead. It was suggested to type it in your word processor and then copy and paste into LumberJocks when ready.

I was hoping to preserve the lrormatting, links and inserted pictures. But your right, that is a good work around. And I bet this is not an easy feature to add.

Links and photos are easy enough to place, once you’ve done them once or twice.

just copy the code from a previous picture, and edit the link/photo name…. then copy/paste the whole thing when your done.

piece of cake.

My wife and I have re-typed many, many blogs…. much better to do the bulk of it off-line.

That’s a great idea for all areas of the site. Publish or hide.

I’m working on drafts auto-saving feature to prevent occasional loosing of the content in works. Similar to gmail.

However, personal drafts are not on my list. I will think about it’s complexity soon and decide if and when to implement it. Thanks Wayne.

Hi Wayne;
I use and and both are free downloads. For small time blogging like here, BlogDesk works great and allows you to save and also has a spell checker, this one is a great tool. For my other blogsites and long term writing I use OpenOffice which also includes spell checkers and gives me the use of many more writing and drawing, plus graphic tools.

Indispensable tools both of these are for one who wants and needs to write without having to strip their wallet of hard earned bucks and you can also say no to the ‘gates machine’ since they’ve already got enough money.

I might add that if all your looking at writing and saving for is here at LumberJocks then BlogDesk will do just fine, and you also won’t lose what you are writing…, save, and save.

another “back-up plan” (I love backup plans!!) is to type it here with all the links codes then copy it from here (without saving it here of course) into your (WORD) document to save/edit until it is ready for posting.. then you can copy/paste it back into a post here—all the formatting links are in tact.

I think
