By Sidharth | Ideas

When I was writing this post on Multi client IM using windows Live writer ,their was a sudden power cut which resulted in loss of the whole content and sadly I had to rewrite it again.This is not the first time I have lost content,I try to keep articles saving to the local draft.But I figured out that windows live writer had an auto saving post option which saves each post automatically.

If you are using Windows live writer to post on your wordpress blog then you can enable  the auto save post option/trick by following this steps :

Open your Windows Live writer

Go to tools

Click on options

A dialog box appears which looks like this

windows_live_writer 

Just check the Automatically save drafts every _ minute,you can write any number in the box.I have set mine to 3 minutes which means I don’t have to save my post manually,Live writer will automatically save my post to the local draft after every 3 minutes.Click OK and you are done!

I prefer writing my posts with HTML so no extra formatting occurs.
