Hey guys, 

A new update was just published for the forums and I wanted to let you know about a few new features. 

Post Drafts and post preview

This is an exciting new feature that I hope will offer you some benefits. 

Starting today, your drafts will automatically be saved after 30 seconds (this value can be changed on my end if needed) have the option of being manually saved with up to three revisions saved. 

This will help tremendously if you start to write a new post or reply and either find yourself out of time or your browser crashes. I use it to start writing on my phone and then go to my computer to finish a post off :)

NOTE: Once you publish your post, the old revisions are deleted for that post. 

You can also preview your post, too!

Loads of other bug fixes were also included with this update, so the forum should run more smoothly. 

As always, if you run into any problems, please let me know by posting in the Bug Reports section.

@veganostomy

I agree with John 100%. Eric, you do such an amazing job with this website and I appreciate it so much!!  I feel like all my online shopping on Amazon isn't doing enough to help the cause. 😂😂 What else can I do to support you in this??

Haha. Liza, unless you can give me 48 hours in a day, I don't think there's any more I could ask from you 😂😂

Eric, I would if I could!!  Even a couple well-placed extra hours a day would do wonders for most people I know!!

If there is ever anything I could actually do to help you in the future, please let me know!!

Hey folks, just a quick change with this feature. I found that automatic saving wasn't always reliable, so you can now save your post draft manually and it will be very reliable. On the downside, if you forget to save your draft, you will likely lose it in the event of a browser crash (which I hope never happens). 

Hopefully, this minor change is welcome.
