Destructive Autosaves Happening on All Drafts
|Reported by:||miqrogroove||Owned by:||azaozz|
I'm investigating reports of post drafts magically reverting or not being saved at all. This appears to be happening at random, and so far I cannot find the cause. In the meantime, I have discovered a related problem: WordPress 2.9.2 is continuously overwriting drafts during editing.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Create a New Post
- Click Save Draft (or wait for autosave)
- Edit the content and wait 60 seconds.
- Repeat step 3 as many times as you like. Go to other pages. Come back. Do anything other than click Save Draft, and WordPress will repeatedly overwrite the saved information without creating any revisions or autosave records.
This is especially destructive if in step 2 the draft was autosaved by WordPress. In that case, there are no revisions at all. If you clear the content at that point, WordPress essentially deletes your draft without confirmation.
