Drafts AutoSave 1.1

11 Nov 2015 Edited
Drafts AutoSave saves new threads and replies as drafts automatically once in a while, so you don't have to worry about losing your writings anymore. Whether if your browser freezes or the AC powers off, you will always have an emergency backup of what you have written down ready to be restored.

Several options are available to customize your own copy of Drafts AutoSave, including different storage methods. You can choose between three different storage methods:
  • Browser LocalStorage, which is a client-side solution and does not waste any server resources at all. This option is highly recommended and it's enabled by default. Browser LocalStorage may be unavailable in certain browsers, so a fallback will be always available choosing between the following other storage methods.
  • PluginLibrary, which is the fastest server-side method but the less reliable (as its cache may vanish at any time, eg. on server's failure).
  • Database, which ensures that drafts will be always available but may cost something in terms of performances.
When the user posts his message, saved drafts are automatically deleted by the system. Both the message and the subject (if available) are saved.

You can also specify whether to load saved drafts - if available - directly when an user opens the target page or to display a message asking the user to do so.

File jscripts/autosavedrafts.js, find:

special_options = {};
Replace with:

var special_options = {
    theme: 'jgrowl_success'
I don't know when it happened, but a recent MyBB update has changed how jGrowl handles theming.
