    Default Auto Save

    so i recently noticed when typing a thread that a yellow "Auto Saved" will pop up in the bottom right....my question is where does this auto save go and if something goes wrong...ie internet freezes mid post or get redirected off the page without logging out can the Auto Save be recovered?? This happened the other night while doing a SOTD post and couldn't find the save to avoid having to retype.

    thanks guys!

    The way it has been working for me is that if I leave the page for some reason mid-post, I can return to the page and click on "Reply to Thread". At the bottom of the text box there is a "Restore Auto-Saved Content" button which I can click to restore what was saved at the last yellow "auto save" announcement.

    Just of for the sake of being complete, I'd like to show it in images.

    "Auto-saved" appears in yellow in the lower right corner of the text editor, like that :
