Plugin for automatically saving a post from the editor to drafts by timer or by changes in editor

Major features of plugin:
– Auto-save post to drafts at regular time intervals by multipart requests with a randomly generated boundary separator. (To check the functionality it’s enough to have the rights to create an entry in the wp-blog (you can test through a user-account) – you will see all requests through the developer tools or some other tools)
– Intellectual immediately auto-save post to drafts when you change the text in the editor.
– You can attach a time-stamp to request through the settings of the plugin (appendix time of saving in the query)
– You can set your own auto-save interval
– You can choose the type of saving – by time intervals or when content is changed


  • This is the administration/settings page of this plugin.


Manual install: Upload plugin folder “wp-autosave” to “plugins” directory of your wordpress app and hit “activate” in plugins menu
From store: Upload the wp-autosave plugin to your blog and activate it
As easy as 1,2,3!


How to use it?

Just activate plugin and write something in editor – everything you will write
will be saved in drafts by your type of saving

What is minimal time to save by intervals?

It depends on you: if you want, you can set time interval even to 0.1 sec

What if my connection will lost and i will be disconnected from server?

Don’t worry: plugin automatically check your connection, and if you will lost it, plugin will wait until connection will be restored and continue his work

This plug-in does the job very well even Better than the built-in feature of WordPress IMHO! I loved it in one instant. Nevertheless it has a little issue. I installed and activated it. Then I went into settings and I set the option to autosave at every edit. Great It works almost perfectly. Almost... In fact I noticed that for some reason it looses the last char of the edit I've made. Yes, just one tiny char every time. But for the rest is great: exactly what I was looking for! Please would you correct this little tiny issue for next update? Nevertheless I'm pleased to give it five stars. Thanks for it
