Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Mobile and apps/Save button to save the unfinished content for a new page

Save button to save the unfinished content for a new page

  • Problem: As the number of editors on Wikipedia mobile continues to grow, there exists a need for a save feature while creating new pages on Wikipedia mobile as creating a new page can take days and one needs to save their content for which they worked hard on.
  • Who would benefit: This would benefit almost every registered user on Wikipedia as this would prevent loss of content by accidental closing of the app/browser on which the editor is logged on. It will also prevent the loss of content due to reloading of pages.
  • Suggested Solution: a save feature should be added to the mobile version of the Wikipedia just like it's added on the desktop version of Wikipedia so that editors on the mobile version can conveniently create new pages whilst being on the phone.

mw:Extension:Drafts exists, though I'm not sure if that supports mobile. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 12:26, 5 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It doesn't work for mobile. That is what I'm suggesting. It should work for mobile. U1Quattro (talk) 16:56, 5 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
