    How to use "Auto Save" - no more post loss!

    In case you haven't noticed or don't know how to use it, here is how auto save works:

    When you edit a post, your draft will be saved on the server automatically every 60 seconds. If you lose your input due to browser/computer crash or accidental clicks, you can restore your input when you revisit the same thread. This also works with new thread, simply reopen a 'New Thread' page, you will see the link 'Restore auto-saved content'.

    I lost a post today (and many times before) in an existing thread.
    I don't see a button to "Restore Auto-Saved Content"
    How do we get it to appear?

    After post note: I just did a test post, it got auto-saved and then clicked off the thread, and then back to here.
    There was no button to restore the post.
    .

    If your draft was saved, you will see the "restore auto-saved content." To trigger the auto-save, you need to stay on the thread for more than 60 seconds.

    Is there some setting that needs to be set somewhere, maybe for my profile? Because I have yet to have anything restored automatically or otherwise.

    Sorry, my previous post was obviously wrong, I have corrected it. You need to click the button "restore auto-saved content" if your draft was saved.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
