MX Linux Forum improvements/Auto Save plug-in

#1 Post by penguin » Tue May 15, 2018 3:53 am

Many times I have lost post after minutes or hours of writing them, touching unwittingly a keyboard key or for another reason. I encountered the same problem on other forums/portals also.
I have a very good experience with some other forums/portals.They have installed a plug in that save automatically what you write and you lose nothing when something happen.So when you tried back to the post that you have been writing (before you escaped touching a wrong key or something else), you would found yourself where you have been before and your post magically will re-appear to continue where you have left off.

It is possible for MX Linux forum/portal to install this plug-in?

@ Penguin, this is a problem that also have. The present solution is to compose the document in Libre Office, where I have a short period auto-save, then Copy/Paste
in to the Forum - or to who ever else I am writing. LO might lose a few words occasionally, but certainly not it all.

Another method is to frequently use the "Save Draft" option.
