  • please add a button that we can use to deactive the autosave function in 2.8.3.

    I really hate autosave and i know a lot of people that hate, too.

    when i deactive it from codes, then the gallery does not works.

    Please, delete the autosave function or let us deactive it ourselves.

  • I think that you can modify or disable autosave and post revisions. Lots of info on this on Google of course 😉

    I like autosave.

    I like autosave.

    do you also like all of the extra post id’s created with it?

    Yes, seriously I agree with this too. Please give us a way to turn it off!

    I don’t like it ………………………….

    To turn off post revisions, put

    // Turn off Post Revisions without a plugin
    define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', false);

    in your wp-config.php file before

    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    I, too, would like the option of turning autosave on or off. I’ve been getting an error message something like “are you sure you want to navigate away from this page” on a couple of my blogs anytime I try to save a draft and move around to another part of my dashboard. At least one possibility I’ve found is that the autosave function may be causing this.

    What would be the harm in a simple dashboard button or option under “settings” to allow those of us who are simply bothered by autosave, or suspect it may be acting badly with a plugin or whatever, the option to turn autosave on or off?
