TIP: The "Drafts" Option when posting...

Postby John T. Folden » 03 Sep 2007, 06:36

Just thought I'd give a heads up to fellow members on a new feature to clear up some possible confusion down the road. Some users of a phpBB 3 board that I run were slightly confused by this so...

When posting a new message, note that there is a "Submit" and a "Save" button. You must hit "Submit" to actually post the message. If you hit "Save" then the posting is saved as a Draft in your User Control Panel but does not appear in the forum itself (until such time as you find it and finally hit "Submit"). :D

:-) Thanks. I'm not sure it's anything worth being overly impressed about. I run a small forum of my own and so, as luck would have it, happened to already be rather familiar with the new software they started using over the weekend. I've, also, been in the computer service business since the early 90's and have thrown together a few websites in my time. There are others that know far more than me, however. :wink:
