Draft not going away when I completed it on another device


(Blake Erickson) #1

I started a topic on my computer, but finished it on my iPhone. Now that I’m back to using my computer the draft won’t go away. I can click on several other topics, but the draft won’t go away until I refresh the page. I feel like it should go away automatically.

I was able to duplicate this on try.discourse.org

This I can reproduce :slight_smile:

This is tricky to fix, we would need to message the user to junk the draft, it can also lead to some unexpected behavior.

You didn’t close the browser on your computer at any time during this process? I assume that is what you mean, so the post was completed on another live device while both editors are open?

Yes, that’s correct, @codinghorror.

I don’t think this is a severe issue @sam.

I did not close the browser but I put my laptop to sleep… (Doing this again now) and finishing on my phone.

Now I’m back on my laptop. When the laptop woke up from sleep it still said 4/4 posts. So without refreshing I just went to the main meta page, which then showed this topic had been updated, and then I went back into this topic. The whole time with the previous reply window open on the bottom of my screen. I deleted all the text in the reply window to write this reply

FWIW, I think Gmail has the same issue…

I don’t think there is a correct way to fix this
