I am aware of the submit_button() and get_submit_button() function, but can I call a "save draft" button on the same way? I have a very long "edit post page" and would like to display the save draft button various time

  • Drafts are automatically saved by default. No need to introduce a special button to accomplish this. Commented May 20, 2014 at 8:18
  • Yes they are, but I had to disable the automatic save because of the large amount of data on the post. Commented May 20, 2014 at 9:23

One really simple way is to just insert another "save draft" button wherever you want in your post editor page.

<input type="submit" name="save" value="Save Draft" class="button">

You essentially just want to make sure it's got "save" as it's name attribute and "Save Draft" as it's value.
