forum experts

 

i havs scoured the forum for a way to "save as a draft" when working on a long thread

 

i have searched the "help" function on the bottom of the page with no luck

 

http://www.flytyingf...ore&module=help

 

so does anybody know how?


Fly tyers sure have a way at making things difficult

 

Why do you look at a persons profile after they make a post?

If making a long post I type and edit it in notepad. Then cut and paste.

 

There is  a note in the lower bar of this reply box that indicates auto save  every couple minutes.

The only place I can "save as a draft" is in my E-mail.  I don't believe that function is available here.

yes i could insert photos one at a time but i'm looking for the easy way out

 

i have already wrote the word document with photos included but i dont want to repeat the laborious process

I've used this feature several times when typing on a mobile phone. The pictures (at least attachments) aren't saved, but the text is.

 

This may not be what you are looking for, and you probably already know this, but just in case..

Caloosa, the auto-save feature is only available while you are actively on the post.  If you want to leave the post, and come back to it, you'd need to "draft" it. 

Again, the only place I know of where that's a feature is on E-mails.

 

I have posted on this site, saved and posted on another site and had the pictures travel.  But I've never tried bringing a post into this site.

 

Flytire ... I don't think there's any easy way to "Save as draft" on this site.

You could save it as .html and put it in a folder in your blog, uploading all pics as well.
Then link to it from the forum...
