Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Any ideas?

What saving method are you using? Can you screenshot your Drafts autoSave settings configuration? Thank you. As you can see in this board, deleting drafts works fine.

I'm using the PluginLibrary saving method.

Thank you. You are using the Browser LocalStorage as saving method, PluginLibrary is just the fallback for browsers that do not support LocalStorage. There is indeed a little bug in the delete function, which has been patched in the version currently installed on this board. Once I add support for drafts deletion when using the Browser LocalStorage method (which is unsupported yet) I will release the new fixed version.

In the meantime, you can disable Browser LocalStorage option and stick to the PluginLibrary saving method as the main saving engine.

Drafts AutoSave has been updated and its available to download in the release thread. Your issue has been addressed. I recommend to update as soon as possible, as an important patch to the LocalStorage saving method has been added too (saved drafts are deleted once they are posted even when using LocalStorage method, this was missing in the previous version).
