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.

Thanks for the info. Updated the file package, so redownload the v1.0.0 and upload the files to fix the issue.

Clicking on Drafts from settings gives this error:

vBulletin Message
The Draft Posts product has been deactivated by an administrator.
Add-on is enabled in Options. I am an admin and it is enabled for admins in the usergroup permissions.

Clicking on Reply with Draft in a thread gives the same error.

Clicking on Draft this Post also gives the same error.

Also, as it stands, a member seemingly can save someone else's post as a draft. That shouldn't be allowed, should it?

Fixed this bug. Thanks for the report. Just redownload the files and then upload them to your server to patch it.

Depends. A draft is a template/rough copy of what you want to post. You can easily copy another user's post without using the draft this post option, so all it's doing is saving someone the hassle of typing/copying it. For that reason I wouldn't view it as an issue and I suspect most users won't use it for what you suggest. The exceptions might be moderators or admins who want to have a standard post ready to use.

I'm open to suggestions though, so feel free to throw some ideas my way and I'll see what I could reasonably include.

Thanks.

How about an option to allow other member's posts which could be disabled? I can see that being confusing to my members to be honest.

Still one bug: I don't see anyone to begin a new draft. I can save an existing post and that then appears in the list of drafts but I can't create a new one or rename an old one, as far as I can tell. Am I missing something?

I'll see what we can do about adding a setting in.

If you click on the drafts in the reply with draft list then you will be taken to a new reply to the thread that will already include the content of the draft ready for you to post or edit before posting.

At the moment it's not possible to rename a draft. I'll add that in for the next version.

No, what I meant was I want to create a draft for a NEW THREAD - from scratch - rather than a draft for a reply, How do I do this?

It's not possible at the moment (although you can reply to an existing thread and then copy the text before pasting it into the new thread you want to start), but I'm sure we can add that in to the next update.

Slight update to the files for those having issues getting the copyright management mod to work with it.

I would vote for adding this option. As it stands, it's of limited utility for me.

This is what would be most useful, drafting a new thread.
