Add-On Type(s)



QuickSave modifies EE2's standard entry saving behavior, returning you to the edit entry page instead of displaying the preview page. The extension also lets you add a 'Publish and Close' button and/or a 'Publish and Preview' button alongside the standard entry submit button. Structure users can choose to return to the Structure homepage when 'Save and Close' buttons are used.

Update 21 Dec ‘10
I’ve just released an update which takes advantage of EE 2.1.2’s new cp_js_end hook. The hacky CodeIgniter hook is no longer necessary. To respond to Nevsie’s point regarding required fields, errors are being shown as I would expect with the latest copy of the addon. If anyone is running into problems please contact me via VayaDesign.net - I won’t necessarily notice reviews/forum posts on Devotee.

This is awesome!  One feature suggestion - we use Structure on most all of our sites, so it would be nice to have the option to direct to Structure rather than Content > Edit on save & close.  Nonetheless, thanks for this gem!

Man!! How wonderful life can be when you don´t need to jump back everytime you hit “submitt”. With this one you can save and stay on the page - or - save+close ... and then it takes you back to the place you wan´t to be - in the entry list. Is a must-have in every site I build.

Works really well and am happy. But required fields errors seem to get missed.

If you are using EE2 and miss Publish Tweeks for EE1 then you’ll probably be pretty happy about this extension. Does just what it says and is a time saver.
