Huddler Release Notes for December 11, 2013 - DRAFTS!!!

Saved Drafts for New Post Replies

 

That's right! When you go to compose a reply post, you'll notice some new UI for automatically saving what you're writing. The way this works is that we'll save your contents automatically 3 seconds after you pause typing. You can also initiate a save manually, though you usually shouldn't need to. This will work in the the Rich Text Editor, the BBCode Editor, and on Mobile. 

 

 

 

 

Once a reply draft is saved, all you need to do is come back to the thread where you had drafted a reply, at some point in the future, and you'll find your draft waiting for you in the Reply editor. This will work if you draft on one computer and then return to the thread via another computer. It will also work across Mobile & Desktop. Drafts are saved server-side.

 

You can draft one post reply at a time for any given thread. There's not currently a way to work on a long-term draft but still fire off a quick reply in the meantime. Until you publish your draft, it will occupy the reply editor's entry field. However, you can have a draft saved for each of as many threads as you like. You're not just limited to one single draft, period.

 

This is a first stage rollout: there is no draft saving for anything other than new replies. No drafts for new threads, no drafts for private messages or articles, comments, reviews, etc. There is also no draft saving of edits to posts.

Well ****, that's not very good at all then.

BTW this feature really works. It saves things across mobile, desktop, etc. It's pretty nifty. It'll help if you accidentally close a window, your browser crashes, etc.

They're aware of issues where drafts aren't saved once you post. You can always hit "discard draft" if it annoys you.

post #13 of 18
Actually the sometimes the drafts just hang around for ever, discard draft doesn't do anything. Other times the discard draft will work but the draft comes back with a refresh. Weird. I'm sure they'll fix it all up in time. So...whatevs, as the RHBD is known to say.

Because the draft saving triggers a bug in Safari's JavaScript code, we've temporarily disabled this feature on The Sand Trap until Safari is updated (6.1.1 on OSes prior to Mavericks, 10.9.1 on Mavericks).

Was this the culprit for the safari crashes?

It's caused by JavaScript issues. This exacerbated it.

 

If you mean the desktop version you haven't done enough looking around the site to find the solution(s). :)

No, I saw the solution but got scared!
