Description Hugh Perkins 2005-10-23 08:20:54 UTC
New functionality:

With $wgLivePreview and $wgSaveDrafts activated, you can save drafts whilst
editing, via AJAX, using ALT-D.

To view a list of saved drafts, go to the special page "My Drafts".

You can click on any saved draft to open it and continue editing.

If includes this functionality, it does not work (using Opera 8.5) - drafts are not saved, information is 
lost (after pressing Save Draft, new content is replaced with current version, so changes are lost).
Comment 5 Hugh Perkins 2005-10-25 07:30:08 UTC
Tested with IE6 and Firefox.
Comment 6 Felipe Corrêa da Silva Sanches 2006-07-10 04:21:48 UTC
It doesnt deletes the drafts, even after the user saves the article. 
Comment 7 Rob Church 2006-07-10 08:14:17 UTC
Please do not resolve bugs fixed unless corresponding code implementing them,
which might or might not come from a third-party patch, has been committed to
our version control repository, otherwise the status becomes TOTALLY USELESS.
Comment 8 Aaron Schulz 2008-09-05 03:33:23 UTC
Where is Draft.php? And how can there be a page called "My Drafts" when there is no user index?

Also, removed useless fucking url filled with spam that slows browser.
Comment 9 Aaron Schulz 2009-01-20 03:31:53 UTC
Done in Drafts extension
