    Where do I find the draft of an unpublished post?

    Hi all,

    I just created a new thread but had not posted it yet, and when I hit Post Thread, I found out I was no longer logged in. Where can I find the draft of an unpublished post?

    Thanks,
    David G.

    You may not be able to recover that not-yet-posted data.

    2 things to remember:

    1. When logging in, from a device you own and control, check the box to keep you logged in.

    2. When composing any lengthy post that you don't want to have to retype, either compose it in Wordpad or Word and then copy it to your web browser, or copy it to Wordpad or Word from your browser before hitting the Post button, just in case something unwanted happens.

    Are you looking for the long thread about your phone that's sitting in the Smartphone section of the site?


    Technically this site has a built in auto save function.... I haven't played with it in YEARS.... In theory, you could have been able to continue after your logged in.

    See the YELLOW pop-up in this screenshot.
