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 replace your browser or clear browser cache.
