Duplicate Drafts Saved

    Every time I write a blog, 20+ copies of it are saved as “Draft”. I’m not hitting save at any point during the process of writing. I appreciate the auto-save feature, but don’t understand the need for 20+ drafts of the same blog.

    Is there a way to fix this? Turn it off? It’s very time consuming to have to go back and delete all the drafts.

    Thank you!!

    The blog I need help with is crazyantelope.wordpress.com.

    Not long ago there were others who had the same issue. I’ll flag this thread for Staff attention.

    Were you in your own blog’s Dashboard?
    Or were you on the WordPress.com home page?
    Were you using this Visual editor?

    Or were you using the HTML editor?
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/#html-editor
    Or the full screen editor?

    Or the New Post tab http://wordpress.com/ ?

    Usually, I’m using the New Post tab. Other times, I’m writing from my android app. (More often than not, I’m on the desktop site using the New Post tab, though.)

    Thanks for the additional information. I don’t log-in on the WordPress.com and I don’t ever create posts there so I have no personal experience when it comes to this issue. I’m thinking that if you simply log-in to your own blog https://crazyantelope.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ and use the “Add New” link to create a post there this issue may not arise. Would you like to try doing that the next time you create a post?
