Hi! Welcome to the Feedback forum.
Before reading anything or asking anything; please check out the FAQs. Your question might be in there. However if you want a better understanding after reading the FAQs, like if it didn't explain it good enough, then by all means ask your question.

Please read the following before posting in this forum...

In this forum you will see an Announcement, and several "sticky" topics. The announcement is the Universal Board Rules. If you are new, read this before doing anything else! The sticky topics will stay above and separated from normal user-made topics in the forum. This is because they outline important information about the board. If you see a sticky topic concerning your issue, please reply with your question or concern in the correct topic. Moderators will see your reply within these topics. Before asking your question, be sure to read the topic and its first page especially. It contains information about your issue that is valuable and may even answer your questions. If the topic does not answer your question, ask your question within the topic, not the forum. If no sticky topic concerns your issue, then you are welcome to ask your own questions by creating a new topic within the forum.

Thank you for keeping the Board Help forum organized!

The "Drafts" feature of phpBB3 (this forum's software) is a very helpful feature. It is meant to save a draft of your topic OR reply before you submit it. You can save your post as a draft in case you have to leave quickly, or just want to finish it later!

To save a post as a draft, click the "Save" button instead of "Submit". It will ask you for confirmation, and then it will save your draft into your UCP. Please note that this draft is a completely private thing and no one can see it until you hit Submit within your UCP.

So - you've saved your draft. Now what? Well, when you come back to MLKF to complete your post, click "User Control Panel" on the left side of the nav bar. Then click "Manage drafts" within the "Overall" category. From there, you have several options. Under the "Options" column, for each draft, you will see "Load draft" and "View/Edit". "Load draft" will load the draft into the topic or forum in which you were working on it beforehand. "View/Edit" is for quick edits. You can use it when you know you won't be submitting your draft as a post. When you're ready to submit your draft into a post, click "Load draft" and then "Submit" as you would regularly do.

Please note* Drafts do not currently save attachments or other elements besides the post title and the post text.
