Where are my draft posts?

I started a post, and then inadvertently left the page. I received a notice that my post was saved as a draft, and would be deleted in 7 days. So how do I access my draft so I can post it?

Try clicking on your name (under the navigation bar) then looking under the Statistics tab. Check both the "Find all posts by YourNameHere" and "Find all threads started by YourNameHere" and see if it's in there. That's my best guess, but I'm not an admin.

Good thought, but nope - it's not there. :-(

Hmm, I haven't ever seen a draft folder or option on the forum.
Do you see anything saying "restore auto-saved replies" on the quick reply button in that section?

Anytime I've left the page while typing, it was gone and I had to start over. I never got the message you received.

Weird. I definitely got the message - I was using my iPhone and on the website itself (not via Tapatalk, or some other 3rd party app). I guess this will just have to remain a mystery...

Were you on enhanced mobile view or desktop view?

I was in enhanced mobile view when I started creating the post and inadvertently left the page and received the notification that my draft would be saved for 7 days. I tried searching for the "drafts" location in that view, and then switched to the desktop view. No joy.

when that blue notification disappears, you'll notice that the [+] sign has a red dot on it. it means that there's a saved draft. it's probably only saved to the section you're in.
