Drafts saved of already published blogs

Travel Forums System Talk Drafts saved of already published blogs

Recently, when writing a new blog, I will bring up an older blog using the edit function so I am able to copy/paste certain information easily. (Ie: names and username links, etc.) I save the new blog entry as a draft because I'm not finished quite yet. When I check the "manage" page, the (previously) published blogs will be there - listed as published, but a second version of them will also be listed in draft form. I ultimately delete the draft form.

Just curious why this is happening since no changes have been made to the originally published blog entry. All I have done is copy/paste a piece of code.

That'll be my fault. In the distant long ago, I wrote the autosave function to start automatically saving drafts every 2 minutes once the main textarea has received focus. That should of course be once the input in the main textarea has been changed.

Sam/Peter: easy fix: my_blogs.js, line 182, change bind("focus" to bind("change"

Thanks for the explanation, Sander! Just thought I was doing something wrong and not figuring out what it was. Have seen the same thing with other TU blog entries by other authors and just deleted them. But, I have received questions about the "secondary drafts" by those other authors so thought I would follow-up..
