Hi guys,

Can i ask for you to make an addition to the blogs? At the moment, there is an auto save for typing option when you start a new blog entry which works great. However, once you have saved out of that and reenter the same blog entry (i.e. to add some more, change bits or add photos) the option isn't there.

Please, PLEASE can you add the autosave when typing option to all blog writing?! I've had several internet cafe problems where i've been logged out, it's died or other and on 3 or 4 previous occassions i have lost a chunk of work. And today has not been fun. Can you add this. Just for me? Please? I'll even bribe you with beer or chocolate (CupCake - down girl) if that will help!

Thanks!
Rich. (whose last blog entry had chunks which he rewrote about 7 times. If it doesn't make sense, that's why!)

Hi Rich,

Yes, we left it out there, due to the extra slight complication that we would also have to check whether the post was already published or not. Obviously you wouldn't want an entry that was already published to start autosaving. But point taken, it would indeed be better if it at least autosaved so long as the entry is only a draft. And I'm very glad to see it is proving of use to someone. :)

It will help me! ;)
It's ok if you skip the beer though

Cheers for the reply Peter. I know what you mean about the previously published ones, and that might be a bridge too far to make it easy. Just a wish, that's all.

Btw, now Sander's life work is finishedf on the photro gallery, does that mean he's free to be given all sorts of horrible new things to do

I'm thinking you people take entirely too much joy out of seeing me suffer. ;)

And yes, barely out of the next stage of travelling, just getting settled in here, I've been giving a new batch of things to do, along with a looming deadline. I guess I shouldn't complain too much though, or I'll lose even the five minutes a day out of the basement that I'm allowed at this point. :D

Okay, I understand the suffering thing and the 5 minutes out of the basement a day thing... But, you are in possession of the largest stockpile of chocolate on TP!!! Do you realize what other members on here would do for that load of the rich, dark confection you have in your stash??? (And I mean those members who are not traveling all over the world on a working holiday visa and receiving chocolate bribes for numerous sources...)

So, are you done with that next assignment yet??? We're waiting... ;)
