"save" button

Post by m_ » Thu 03.20.2008 6:34 am

if its possible , can move the "submit" button to the left most at post reply page? I always click on "save" when I wanna submit a reply.. coz the left most button is always the confirmation button isnt it..

I'm not sure how difficult that would be and frankly I would be a little scared to mess with it. But if enough people would like it moved, I can look into it.

Yay, I was thinking the same thing the third time I hit save instead of submit.

Move it completely away from the other two buttons.

I've lost a few posts because I hit "save" instead and then closed the window.

Why do we even *have* a "save" button? I've never seen one before in a forum. "Preview" and "Submit" should be enough, I'd think. :)

Good old Space Quest II.

In any case, almost every time I make a post my hand hovers over to the "save" before picking "submit".

I never had any trouble with it, but I wouldn't mind if the Save button was removed. I don't think that I would ever need it anyway.

NJT, do you know how to remove the 'Save' button?

I think part of the problem is that on some forums the "submit" button says "save"
so those of us that go to such forums, get a little confused.

Well,
weird first post here but, whatever :p

The whole draft/save feature in itself is a pretty useful tool.

being able to save things one commonly uses on a special forum (like, templates for posting some stuff, pm-templates for moderating purposes) or just simply "type your message, get disturbed, save the draft and post it later"...

it might take some getting used to at first (the 'having a new button' thing) but overall it's a pretty neat thing to have available, imho.

(though njt just disabled the draft feature xP )
