I just noticed that article draft auto-save doesn't work. At least in FF17, is it only for me?
I just lost a half-written article draft which was auto-saved a number of times and also saved forcefully by myself click the save button.
So I started the article over. Put some text. Clicked save. Opened a draft and observed empty article template.
I was writing an article, saved it a number of times. But then accidentally clicked the Back button (actually pressed the Backspace keyboard button in Firefox). When I returned to the article draft via account menu it was blanked out: currently it is in the article empty template state! Like I wasn't writing and saving at all.
How can I recover my draft back?!
You won't believe how many times this has happened. But somehow I always find it in an auto saved folder - maybe not always in the most updated version. But a version of it is sometimes found. But sometimes it's not even there.
I have currently finished writing a small article about a piece of software I developed.
Although the code itself makes up only 740KB zipped, it is dependent on external libraries, that need to be deployed along the program to run.
In my case this external library is a modified version of the Chromium browser itself.
Unfortunately, the size of this redistributable package including chromium and all of its dependencies is 21MB in its compressed form, making it uneligible to be uploaded using the Article Submission Wizard.
Chromium in its source form requires a minimum of 15GB disk space, so this is not an option either.
Hello Whom(to which I query):
I appreciate your assistance greatly!
I don't know if my problem is due to my naivety or a technical problem with the web site, but, the Article Submission Wizard 'Add Files' and 'Preview' functions seem not to be working.
The Add File function shows a path of C:\fakepath\...
I don't know if that is wgat it should be or not, but the Upload just chases it's tail
The Preview just times out.
Is There something I missed or am I just doing it all wrong?
I just added my technical blog. It's on blogger, so my first surprise was it not showing up at all. I then switched the feed from Atom to RSS, and it showed up just fine.
In my article i tried to replicate the tags used on CodeProject the best i could, however when the article was pulled, the tags associated with it was totally off, and i had to go and edit the article on CodeProject to categorize it right.
Is there something i'm missing ? Maybe the way blogger exposes tags is incompatible in the way CodeProject detects tags ? Or maybe it's possible to just annotate the article on the blog with microformats ?
No clue here, just trying to figure out what could have gone wrong. That aside i think it's totally awesome to be able to post an article on my blog, and have it automagically syndicated over here. Great job on that !
Actually i thought i did something wrong somewhere, since it's kind of contradictive to have an automated mechanism that can pull articles, if you then have to come in person to configure things manually.
Would be cool if the parser could just match tags that are already configured here, with the tags exposed in the article. Like this authors would just have to comply with the syntax used here, which i doubt would pose any problems to anyone.
Thanks again, and hope to see some evolutions on that side. The system is a great idea, but i understand you need a minimum of compliance between your actual system and distant posts.
Admin !!!!! Kindly help me with my code as when i paste it from a code editor and do the formatting select C# language, first it shows the correct code but then it still shows garbage. Kindly remove these defects and post my article. I am fed up of doing this and have wasted more than 6 hours on this !!!
If you are using the Article Wizard, there's an option to upload files (you should see this to the right of the article editor). Once you've uploaded a file, another option becomes available to insert this file.

I saw an article recently and I realized that it performed an identical function to an article that I posted. I wanted to show that my article was an alternative. When I went to the alternative article section the site expected me to write out a whole new article. Is there a way that I link my article as an alternative article?
