Local Storage Backup


Let’s say you’re on the train and you’re writing on a post you started at home.
The train enters a no-signal area just when you’re about to press “Publish”.

The browser takes you to a “Page not found” message and that’s it. Pressing back
sometimes doesn’t bring back all the work.

This plugin takes care of that situation, and a lot of others. Once you’re in the editor,
you can forget about your connection. Just write. Hit publish when done. You’ll be notified next time you’re on the blog if you
still want to publish.

Developed as part of Google Summer of Code 2011.


Just install as a normal plugin, and forget about it.

Preview button now appears disabled when the connection is down. (Clicking it opens a new window, so it’s harmless)


Formatting is now preserved accordingly.

Posts are published, instead of saved as drafts when the “Publish” button is pressed.
