Enhance 'New Page' button

Description

Dear Fred and developers,

Currently the 'New Page' button doesn't check any data that are already written in editor.

User may accidentally click it and lose all pre-written data !!! :(

So, the 'New Page' button should be able to prevent this frustration.

Because the editor completely reloads a new page, the 'New Page' button checks what's in the text area.

Invoker	:=	User
Event	:=	ButtonClicked
Object	:=	btnNewPage

BEGIN PROCEDURE 
	Check values in text area
	If values == 'This is some sample text. You are using FCKeditor.' OR values == ''
		load new page 
	Else 
		confirm user "The texts have been changed since last written. Are you sure to load new page ?"
		If yes
			load new page 	
		EndIf 
	EndIf		
END PROCEDURE

Thank you so much for your time, consideration and hardwork.

Found this ticket when looking for general information on the "New page" plugin and what it is for. Still not clear on what the point of it is, if not to just clear the editor.

Anyway, I think the change in this ticket should be implemented, it still makes sense 6 years from when it was opened.

I think this ticket should be closed.

New page is quick way to remove editor contents - much quicker than Ctrl+A and Del. If anyone presses this button by accident he can use "Undo" button or Ctrl+Z. Showing extra confirmation dialog is IMO frustrating overhead and should not be implemented.

Resolution: invalid
Status: confirmedclosed

I have consulted this issue with my colleague and closing it as invalid.

This request has come from user who is not familiar with "New Page". If someone is using it 100 times a day like I do, he knows it is much better than switching to source and removing editor contents or pressing Ctrl+A and Del few times (first Del doesn't have to remove everything).

As my colleague has pointed out most of users don't use "New Page" but rather modify existing editor contents but they can revert any accidental contents removal with Undo command or Ctrl+Z shortcut.
