Can't dismiss post

Posts aren’t abandoned from the abandon post prompt.

Clicking cancel in the draft successfully abandons it though.

Reproduced here on meta.

Hmm can you have a look @eviltrout?

What are the steps to reproduce? Did you click reply, fill in text and then click edit to trigger the abandon post prompt?

Most recently it was with a draft response to an existing thread thread. When I browsed back to the thread in question with my reply minimised a prompt asked if I wanted to abandon my draft. Clicked to abandon the draft, but it persists.

Still occurs now.

I’ve had this happen to me when I am using the shortcut C key to edit a post. @steve_pd are you editing the post by using a shortcut or by clicking the buttons?

Hmm why is there a prompt to abandon when you navigate back to the topic? There must be an action to trigger the prompt. :thought_balloon:

I’ve tried to reproduce this but can’t seem to do so. Can you give explicit steps to follow to get it to happen? I’ve tried going into a topic, starting a post, entering another, hitting reply, then abandon and it works.

The more specific the better :slight_smile: Would love to fix it.


Ok I just ran into this and am able to repro consistently.

  1. Create a draft post and wait for it to be saved
  2. Navigate somewhere else
  3. Hit back

Guess who broke it :badpokerface:


Hurrah! So I wasn’t imagining it? XD
