    Can someone PLEASE tell me how to turn off the damned autosave feature that has someone just appeared? It’s driving me crazy, and is just downright frustrating!

    Please, I’m going to go batty if I can’t turn it off by tomorrow.

    This is worse than frustrating!!

    Please give us a way to turn this thing off!!

    You can’t go for more than a minute without it auto-saving and moving your cursor to the start of the post!! Insane!!

    Kill this.

    Seriously – you have just GOT to fix this now! This is the single stupidest thing I have ever encountered – and that is saying something. I can’t type for more then a few lines without it sending me back to the beginning of the page, and cause me to start writing at the beginning… it’s stupid!

    Please, hurry and fix this menace now. Or at least just provide a button that I can switch off the auto save function!

    Can I suggest that you put in feedback about this?

    It will get seen quicker than it might in the forum.

    I didn’t even know autosave had been enabled!

    Actually, while I agree that this new feature is annoying (since there is no way to adjust/turn off the feature), I think it could eventually come in handy.

    Like when you’re right in the middle of a really good post and for some reason your browser just shuts off and disappears. Then you discover the post has been eaten because you didn’t save it every once in a while. (not that that’s ever happened to me)

    We know this is happening and it is top of the list to sort out.
    Sorry!

    This autosave is the silliest thing that wordpress is testing. Once your post is saved and then you want to publish it it DOUBLES the post/entries! then you have to go back to the dashboard and delete!

    For god’s sake, what are you testing (again) guys? You should at least notify us in advance.
    You have to turn it off please, its leading to nowhere and does not support us at all.

    Is this the same thing that’s happening to me that some posts are being saved as drafts? I keep on thinking that I accidentally clicked something to save it as a draft. I don’t know how. But I deleted the drafts already. Is this the same thing?

    I’m sorry podz. I didn’t read the whole thread but I just did now and read:

    then you want to publish it it DOUBLES the post/entries! then you have to go back to the dashboard and delete

    So I see it is the same thing as mine. Sorry.

    Sorry I sent feedback – didn’t know you guys were working on it!!!! Thanks guys – I mainly read the blog for news, nothing was showing up so I didn’t know this was going on! BTW once it is fixed I think it will be a great feature as there are times when you loose the lot, like sometimes using the spell checker and then turing it off – boom a paragraph is gone.

    Keep up the good work guys. Glad that I am not the only one.

    unclesuuu: Go to http://wordpress.com/forums/ and scroll to the bottom. Choose a forum; click it. Scroll to the bottom. There’s the form.

    This could be a lot easier than it is…

    Uncle Su – I also answered your question by email AND as a reply to the post comment you left on my blog.

    Yes Andy, it could be much easier!

    Perhaps we should have a word with the developer… ;)

    I might have misunderstood podz last post. Is the auto-save ‘problem’ resolved now? I am having similar problems. I find the auto-save brings me automatically to the end of my post regardless of where my cursor was prior to the save. Also, if I have other windows open, the autosave automatically opens the wordpress window every minute.

    Is there a way to turn (either now or in the future) the autosave off or perhaps lengthen the amount of time between saves?

    iago, I was about to post this, too. If I am reading an article I want to blog, after a minute WP edit window pops back up. Not a huge issue, but annoying, for sure.

    (Also, this innovation was the start of trouble for one of my authors who now keeps losing her posts because it says she doens’t have permission to edit. May be unrelated, but I wonder…I posted about it in another thread…)
