IJBM: IJBM and HH (and all Vanilla sites?) re-load pages from scratch every time

so if I've typed up a reply to a post, then navigate away from the page, I lose everything I've typed.


This keyboard, incidentally, likes to mess me up with that.  Usually, I hit tab twice, once to go to "back to discussions" and a second time to go to "post comment", and then press enter.  This keyboard sometimes doesn't register both hits of tab, causing me to press enter after hitting tab twice but actually registering only one hit -- causing me to go back to the main forum and not actually post anything at all.  And then I lose everything I'd typed.

    That's why I press Save Draft often.

    Sometimes I also ctrl+C for good measure.

    Am I crazy or didn't it use to auto-save draft?

  • I think so...and the board also used to not reload from scratch every time.

    Shouldn't be too hard to re-enable this, actually...I'll go ask UE about it.

    [04:02:34] btw Unknown_Entity, do you remember why we disabled draft autosave?
    [04:02:55] because it kept spamming up people's drafts folder with crap

    Oh.  Right.  Hm.

    What if you enabled autosave of the drafts but lengthened the delay?
