Added: Save post draft

Question; how long does the revision and saved draft stay active for?  I have visions of the table filling up with garbage if not auto deleted after say at least once per month, or every 7/14 days.

Great options with posts revisions and drafts, but I believed that in this release you will add integration of wpForo search with WP search. Still waiting for this integration... 🙁

@verek

The revisions are being deleted after you've made a post, i.e. if the user makes some revisions and click on the "Add" button the revisions will be automatically deleted.

If the value of the "Max Number of Revisions" option is set 3 and the user is making more then 3 revisions the oldest revision will be removed and the latest one will be added instead of it.

In case you want to say thank you !)

Hi @verek,

Please provide more information, why you think it's not fixed. The bug was related to new topics in Simplified Layout forums. Now it works fine, when you create a new topic it updates forum information on forum list. You can test it here as well, that problem is fixed.

@verek,

no worries, it's already designed to keep minimal revisions in database. It stores maximum 3 revisions and delete old revisions after each new saving. It doesn't save revisions if there is no any change in content, so if you leave the editor for one hour it'll not save new revisions. Also after submitting the new post it deletes all revisions related to that post.

In other words, wpForo post revision system works maximum clean and doesn't keep revisions for long time, you can be 100% sure, this is not an unintuitive piece of code. This is a very smart solution.

@robert

Deleting revisions upon saving/add reply is smart. The only time this won't work is if somebody saves a draft, decides not reply and never revisits the topic again. In this case the saved draft will stay saved in perpetuity?

Hi @verek,

Had some time to debug this. On one simplified layout subforum the latest new topic shown was a topic replied to 3 months ago and there are dozens of newer single posts topics (the same problem discussed on the bug report); after the update this did not change on the sub forum. What I did do was reply to the newest single post topic and then deleted that reply, now is shows this topic as the latest which is as it should be.

So, the correct latest post will show only when something new is created post update. I considered this fixed, thank you.

Hi @duyquang,

This bug is fixed in 1.6.4 version, please update. But the old topics with no-titles will not be fixed automatically, you should edit those and set titles.
