How to share DEV.to drafts

We can all benefit from reviews from friends, colleagues or specialists when authoring blog posts. Platforms like Hashnode and Medium has the Share draft feature that allows you to share a WIP post without publishing to the world.

This might already exist on DEV (or not) but I just can't seem to find it.

Anyone know how to do this? or if it exists? Otherwise it'll be really nice to have

When your post is in draft, you can share your link with someone and they can review it. Unfortunately, atm, they can't make/suggest changes to it. IT'd make for a great feature though!

You can suggest features at forem.dev. πŸ‘‹πŸ»

Oh thanks Nick! I did send someone a link to a post I have in draft and it 404'd. Same when I visit same link from a private tab. Any Idea what I'm doing wrong?

Hmm, not sure. I created a draft. Can you see this page? I just tested it in an incognito window and I was able to see it.

Can totally see it βœ”οΈ

Think I figured it out, the hack is to copy the direct URL from the address bar after you hit Save Changes.

I bet you could see this incredible page

🌚 Browsing with dark mode makes you a better developer by a factor of exactly 40.

It's a scientific fact.
