Foswiki on GitHub is open for business! Next release meeting: Monday Nov. 17, 1300Z
This is not just for WYSIWYG, but generally for the edit pane.

AJAX provides the facility to background save - this would be a boon for twiki as it would save the possibility of losing work if the browser crashes or is inadvertently closed.

Confluence has this feature.

I just wanted to give this Task a "+1" from me. -- MartinSeibert - 18 Jan 2009

On my way through the bug list of the TinyMCE plugin I am glad to mention that this feature has allready been developed and published by ThomasZobel. See AutoSavePlugin for more informations.

The TinyMCE autosave plugin actually seems to work quite well, if you are using a modern browser. Some minor tweaks to handle multiple edited topics simultaneously; note to self: investigate draft expirations, default expiration time

-- PaulHarvey - 27 Jun 2010

There is an issue that, upon restoring an edit session where a draft exists (eg. from prior browser crash), the autosave plugin will update the draft with whatever happens to be in the editor after the first TINYMCEPLUGIN_AUTOSAVE_INTERVAL has elapsed.

This can be resolved with a more advanced extension or possible introduction of speednet's full version of the plugin (moxiecode's version in the distribution is stripped down). There are a couple of minor UI problems to consider; this can be carried out in another task.
