Save post as draft?

I signed in, typed a long post, go to submit and states I need to sign in? Don't know what I did wrong. Does not appear in forum. Did I lose everything?

Yes.

When you sign in click the box that says "stay signed in" to avoid timing out.

Two things. . .
  • I'm sure it's too late now, but just remember next time that you can hit the "back" button on the browser, and each time you do it, you will go back a page. The page you were working on when you made your ill fated post, will come back up. Probably be the 3rd page back. Then you can/could have copied the post (cut/past) and then once you got logged back in, you would have the post ready to past.
  • If you want to save a draft that you can come back to later, the "save post as draft" button is in the upper right hand side of the form. You may (or may not) have to click on "go advanced" first.

I have had that happen on many websites, if it asks for a sign in, I copy and paste after I sign in

Upper right hand corner, under the log in/out link.

My apologies guys/gals. It appears this version of Vbulletin does not support saving drafts and it was just a coincidence that the name of the thread (Save a Draft) is posted in virtually the same position as where the link is located on other versions of Vbulletin that do support it.

It may be a function that Admin will need to turn on and just hasn't at this time.

Hold on and I'll upload a picture in a few minutes.

OK, here is a picture of the "save draft" feature on newer versions of Vbulletin. I've look the version this site is using and I'm unable to locate it. As i said earlier, it may just be that Admin needs to turn it on.
