I started a post yesterday, but was called away by business while composing it, and so clicked on the SAVE AS DRAFT button.

Today, I cannot see a means to retrieve that draft.

Am I missing something that is in plain sight?

When you go to your PM's, did you click on the drop down box on the left and click on drafts?

No.   Rolleyes  

But I did just now (after reading your response) and discovered that the "IN BOX" box at the upper left was actually a drop-down menu.  However, when I selected DRAFTS from that menu, it said there is no "message."  Is that menu only for Personal Mails?  Or is there another place (that I have missed) for draft posts to forums?

That is for your personal PM system. Not sure about the SAVE AS DRAFT listed at the bottom where POST REPLY and PREVIEW POST are listed. I've never tried to use that option so I have no clue how it works or where the drafts go.

Good question for Andrew.

In the user settings there should be a folder called drafts?

By golly there it is.  Meles, if you read this, go to your user CP (user settings) and look down towards the bottom right.  That's where your draft should be.

I actually wasn't sure myself since the 'save as draft' feature is new to me in mybb, whether a plugin or not.

I'm glad it's been located!
