    Soooo, …… I guess that's what the Main Forum button at the bottom of the page is for? ;) Thanks! I just never noticed it before.

    I realize that….keeps things interesting, just like face-to-face conversations! But, when I was using the 'back button' and I returned to all the Bold topics, many times I would click on the topic I was just reading (sometimes more than once!) ….duh! :D Thanks Steve.

    You know that we grill heretics at the stake don't you? :D

    It was in the sixth grade when eggplant and I parted company. Somebody brought an eggplant casserole to a covered dish dinner. It tasted and looked OK on the way down. Changed my mind on the way up. :(

    Yep! You had three entries of the same image ... two full size and one thumbnail size. I can't tell you how you did it, but when things turn into a mess, you might find it easier to just delete all the images and start over on adding images rather than trying to fix things. If you feel comfortable using the BB code editor that may be the the easier way to remove unwanted garbage. The WYSIWYG editor can be a bit ambiguous in situations like this. At least that was my impression when I took a look at both editors.

    So, Grilled Heretic on a stick? Like a kabob or something? I guess being over there in Waco you use mesquite for that...

    I think in Waco they just put it out in the sun, maybe on a rock.

    Well we do have some unenlightened folks here who think that the best use for mesquite is to burn it. We can overlook that transgression if if the fire is in a pit cooking a brisket. Since it is mostly considered a nuisance by ranchers that is actually good news for woodturners who are happy to help the ranchers get rid of those terrible nuisance trees.

    Only for the initial searing to seal in the juices. After that we put a parasol over it to keep it from getting too hot and burning. :D

    Low and slow, right?
    What do you use for a good mop sauce?

    Are we off topic yet or merely validating what Steve said earlier?

    Back ON topic: saved text is staying in system WAY too long! I started a reply 3 days ago that I realized wouldn't be helpful, so I deleted it and went to another thread. However, the draft had already been saved by system. Every time I came back to this thread, that text was hanging out in the text box. Seems pretty crazy.

    I have noticed the same thing. I cannot find a cancel button once I type something.

    They only way I have found to get rid of the typed text is to cut it from the reply box and hit the post reply for the blank reply box.
    Otherwise it seems to stay in the box.

    Need a cancel button.

    Yes and yes.

    Earlier, folks were saying how much they liked the feature that they could start a post and come back later to finish it ... sometimes on a different device. This isn't unique to Xenforo ... vBulletin also worked that way ... sort of, except it seemed to get confused and concatenate pending posts on different sub-forums. However, I have experienced the same thing with pending posts that won't go away until I jump through all sorts of hoops ... and it is vexing.

    Could it be a British thing to not not say, "oops I didn't mean to do that". :D

    It was set to be saved for 24 hours and I lowered that to 6.
    There is no way to see saved drafts

    Thanks, I didn't know that you could set the time-out period. But ... but ... but, I can see saved drafts ... see the screen shot below ... it shows up as grayed out text in the editor box ... or, are you talking about something else?

    What I was looking for was a button or menu item that allows you to see the saved draft.
    It will show up in your reply box next login or next reply.

    I get the impression that the Xenforo developers don't quite appreciate the subtle nuances of why a Cancel button would be a good feature ... in fact, there was once a cancel button and now there isn't.
    1. Exhibit 1
    2. Exhibit 2
    3. Exhibit 3
    I believe that there may be a third party add-on to fix this issue. It seems clear that the Xenforo developers don't quite grasp the situation.

    OK, I tried the Xenforo solution. I multi-quoted some posts and added some text ... see screenshot below. I waited a few seconds until I saw "Draft Saved" and then I deleted the text using CTRL-A to highlight all followed by hitting the DELETE key. Next I closed the browser (I also repeated this by just navigating away from the page and not closing the browser). Then I came back to this page and as we already know, the "undead" deleted text is back to haunt us once again.
