Description Petja Laitila 2008-06-05 13:13:11 UTC
It would be nice enhancement if wiki could ask the user "Do you really want to quit editing without saving" if user were about to do so. Because some users dont know that pressing on Back button gives back "lost" text and external editors (like fck) dont even do that. This option could be enabled/disabled from LocalSettings.
