  2. Autosave before Preview on published posts. (11638)
    1. On a blog, make a change to a previously published post and ensure you can see the change in a preview.
  3. Reader comments with multiple gifs. (11698)

      Repeat until you crash the app.

    2. Create and publish post using all of the available blocks (Paragraph, Heading, Image, Lists, Separator, Page Break) and check that each one works as expected.
    3. Add an image with a centered caption that contains rich text such as bold, italic, link, and strikethrough. (941)
