Auto save blog post draft

Filed under: Blogging,UX - User Experience,Wordpress — ramsblog @ 6:07 am

I am sure many people might have come across this situation where you would draft/compose the large text and forget to make a copy and hit publish. boom.. lost it due to either network connectivity, or session, cookies, what ever…

AutoSaveDraftI like this feature of auto-saving the blog post on wordpress write post page, I believe was introduced recently. However, as picture attached, inspite it says saving draft and saved at so and so time periodically, It doesn’t publish when I hit publish at the end. It rather goes into saved draft. Well I am happy that it finally gets saved as draft but sometimes, the later part of the text would get lost/erased even in draft. So irrespective, good idea is to keep a copy before submitting for any purpose (save draft / publish), I guess.



  1. hmmm… looks like screen shot hasn’t come out well – I will have to update it sometime later on… 🙂

  2. I accidentally hit some key on the left and lost about 45 minutes of work, but any other something like that has happened, it has been recovered with a later auto save. I hit the back button, to no avail. And the weird thing is the times are all off by 8 hours ahead, so there appears to be a bug or a glitch in the matrix. I am normally somewhat OCD about saving constantly but this time I was on a roll and I have lost some critical work, any thoughts:
