When editing a topic that was just created it does not save

(Thomas) #1

I am new so maybe I am overseeing something.

I have tried it a couple of times now. I create a new topic and then immediately try to edit it. The changes made to the body or subject seem to be saved but when I refresh the screen they are lost.

Has anyone seen a similar behavious?

This is called the post edit grace period. It is 5 minutes after posting by default but can be changed via the site settings.

However I just noticed you said the changes were “lost”. Can you reproduce this on try.discourse.org and if so can you describe the exact steps?

so I tried again and after the 5 minutes it works fine.
What I meant with changes being lost is that I added e.g. some text within the grace period and it would keep the changes in the editor window.
I suppose that works as it is supposed to.
Thanks for the time
