Enabling "Auto Save" in posts and replies

Just a thought for consideration as I just posted here:
https://www.ehmac.ca/showthread.php?...=1#post2683368

Even with MacOS the same problem can happen and has done so too many times for me.

What we need is the "Auto Save" implemented that a lot of other sites using vBulletin use successfully.

Maybe I should post this for the Admin to read and ponder.

So here it is.

Thoughts...??? Or even possible.

Hello there,

If the user is going to create an article he should see a message that there is auto-saved content with the option to display it.
This button is displayed beneath the editor text area.

OK,

This is a test, replying to your message, but I don't see any auto-saved "button... displayed beneath the editor text area."

Am I not looking in the correct area???

Hello there,

I doubled checked on this but it seems like this site is running on different forum software.
I tried looking for a plugin that would allow this, however, a custom plugin for this draft feature has not yet been created.
If there's any news on this, I will get back to you immediately.

Thanks for checking, I just thought and hoped that it would be the same as another forum that has the "Auto-Save" feature enabled and works quite well, and which is also using vBulletin:
https://www.mac-forums.com/forums/index.php

But then again, their auto-save doesn't always seem to work. So maybe just best to always just keep using the old select-all and copy as one types I guess.

Yup so that forum is running vB4 while this one is running vB3
An upgrade is not on the radar since we've noticed that there are more issues with vB4 than 3.

Maybe that's the reason they have had several shutdowns recently and even another maintenance one yesterday.


EDIT:
FWIW, it looks like the vbulletin auto-save feature has been available for quite some time and in previous versions, but maybe not included in all versions???

turn off auto-save vbulletin 4.2.0 version

Does anyone know of an autosave feature like what is found in V4 for V3?

Hello there,

Good catch on the second link.
Located the plugin there.
I'll get this passed to the techs.
Please standby for updates.

ehMac Data Base Errors

I keep getting this notice of ehMac data base errors when trying to post.

If I re-post, it is always a duplicate.

Can this be checked into please?

Hey,

Are you getting this error when you try to post a particular thread or is it just happening irregularly?
