User Interface[edit | edit source]

Saving Drafts[edit | edit source]

Behavior JavaScript Enabled
Automatic Saving
  • Saves a draft every 30 seconds

Edge Cases[edit | edit source]

  • When a page is moved, the drafts which refer to that page are dropped
  • When a draft is created for a new page but the page is never saved, the draft will still be available for creating the page
  • When a draft is created for a page and the page is then deleted, the draft will remain, and the behavior will then be just as for drafts of uncreated pages

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Copy files of the extension into your extensions/ClientsideDrafts directory.
  • Add the following line to the bottom of LocalSettings.php
require_once ( "$IP/extensions/ClientsideDrafts/ClientsideDrafts.php" );

Known Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Mediawiki change its info notice display method since 1.20. If you edit a page then close it without save, someone change the page then you will not be able to see the newest code in editor unless you change a browser or clear browser cache.
