Which is why with long and complicated posts I try to (if I don't forget) write stuff in a text editor and then copy paste to preview.
Funny that you should mention that, I have just completed coding of that feature (PR at: https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/pull/5686) and while working on that I realised that a bit more work on the visibility code could also work for draft posts.
Implemented these on another board myself, not really too difficult. Just some html wrappers IIRC for the bbcode bit.
Thanks for your comments.
The best positioning of "your drafts" links or buttons is difficult to decide. Loading a draft after clicking "New topic"/"New post" just feels wrong to me.
Ergonomically, they should be put next to the "New topic" and "Post Reply" buttons, Perhaps if a button is placed there, but only if the user has existing drafts in that forum/topic.
Perhaps also a button in the Quick Edit pane next to the "Full editor" button?
I think I agree with that, and my first (abandoned) prototype of the feature used the viewtopic template which had the "Edit" etc. buttons. The current incarnation is using the search results template which does not have buttons (maybe buttons should be generally added there?).
An interesting thought. Changing colours is a bit of a grey area (excuse the pun), as unless there is already a background colour used elsewhere in a similar way, it would involves changes to prosilver and other styles. As a style maintainer I would need convincing of the need for this.
I will look into draft PMs next, before tackling the cosmetic issues.
Yes, there is the unapproved posts' color (light red iirc).An interesting thought. Changing colours is a bit of a grey area (excuse the pun), as unless there is already a background colour used elsewhere
Hmmm, that's the point I do not like, therefore I can't vote.
I had overlooked that, I will see how well it works in this template.
I have not implemented any visibility of drafts to moderators, and I don't now intend to.
Just as long as it is a custom setting - preferably at group level.
I just tested this with some unapproved posts, and (using prosilver) I don't see this red background. Can you give an example of how to show it?
