What is Draft Posts?
Draft Posts allows users to save a post as a draft which can be reused later as a template or draft for a new post. Each Post can be saved as a Draft copy by one click at the foot of each postbit or checking an option when creating a new post. All available Drafts are displayed below the bottom Reply button on the Show Thread pages. All Drafts can be deleted from the User Control Panel area.

Slight update to the files for those having issues getting the copyright management mod to work with it.
Hi, i also added my request for this, it's necessary to make a draft in a new thread.

And if it is possible, that the button will be the same as the style buttons of the forum.

Good work!

After some feedback today we're release version 1.0.1 of Draft Posts! This update adds the ability to start a thread using a saved draft and also fixes some style issues with post draft buttons on the showthread pages and is available for download in the opening post.

At the bottom of each forum page there is now the option to use a draft as the starting post in a thread. Like with the showthread option, simply select the draft from the menu and the new thread page loads with the draft in the editor ready to modify or post.

The fixes to the styling also means the buttons now reflect the design of the regular new reply or new post buttons. As part of the fix there are also two stylevars that are used to help adjust the positioning of the buttons properly. If you find the theme you use doesn't space the buttons properly, then simply adjust the stylevars to fine tune the positioning.

The full change log is here:

Fix: Formatting on Showthread page for Draft Posts button/menu.
Fix: Corrected phrase 'dbtech_draftposts_post_with_draft'.
Fix: Posts saved as drafts without a title now use a phrase for the draft title.
Fix: Missing admin permissions.
Feature: Ability to create a draft from the forumdisplay using the 'Post with Draft' button/menu.
Feature: Ability to save a draft from the newthread page using a checkbox option.
Feature: 2 StyleVars that contain numeric values to adjust the spacing of the reply and new thread buttons as is needed.

Can the button on the bottom of posts be made smaller? Just an icon? Takes up too much space with the "draft this post" text.

Ok I see all the buttons, very nice. Just would like an icon rather than the whole "draft with post" as there is too much in that real estate and on mobile devices it gets all jumbled.

Thanks for installing the mod. Is it a custom style, or based on the normal vB styles? If you PM me your site URL I'll have a look at it and see if I can figure it out.

I might be able to add in an image only option in the settings. Will see how I can implement it.

Matt

is it possible to schedule the draft to publish at specific time. That would be most useful for my moderators team to make new drafts and schedule it so they could start a new thread daily, without even loggin in. How about that, possible?

That's not a feature that's currently in the mod. Interesting idea though. Will have a think about whether we can introduce that into the mod. Nice idea.

I'll make sure Dylan at DBTech is aware of the suggestion.
