    This is a very handy feature, very advanced, not something I've ever seen on a forum before. Thanks for enabling it.

    Sounds like Christmas to me. I have the 'orrible 'abit of proof reading posts then forgetting to submit them before I switch pages.

    ... so thank you Santa.

    I found that one by mistake - handy feature, and I hadn't seen that on any other forums, either.

    Visit the same thread again, and click the 'reply to thread' button, you should see 'restore auto-saved content', as Matrix described. Then you click on that.

    Go to the Forum Homepage and click on the forum you were going to add a new thread to. Click the button "Post New Thread". You should then see the "Restore Auto-Saved Content", and you can click on that. The thread is automatically saved every 60 seconds, so if you didn't type long enough, just a few words and no more, then it won't be saved.
