Continue editing after saving (r6965) (3 posts)

    Hello,
    we use for WordPress for our community journal and because we are some development fans we enjoy updating tools with subversion and automatism. We update wordpress almost daily, sometimes more.
    Since you did major improvements to the WP admin interface I really miss a neat feature:
    "Continue after editing".
    Before you can preview a new post, you have to save it (autosave is just _not_ enough). Currently you are redirected to the posts overview and a little box (edit | show post) occurs. Because of this behaviour some persons started new postings after saving the draft instead of continuing editing, they just thought the post is lost.

    Best Regards,
    Osai

    'Save' does the same as 'Save and Continue Editing.' After clicking Save a 'Preview This Post' link appears above the Publish Status area.

    I assume moving of the save/publish buttons to the sidebar element of the editor forced the devs to make some abbreviations to the button text.

    Hmmm... no.. the behaviour is weird:

    If you edit an older draft and click save you will be redirected to post-new.php and start with an empty form again.
    Saving + redirecting (to the same post) only worked once after starting a new post.
