Potlatch 2 - no reminder to save

Posted by geowas on 13 December 2010 in German (Deutsch)

Grrrr...... whywhywhywhy does Potlatch not ask/remind me to save my changes when clicking on [Map]? For a second time I lost a huge stack of changes :(

Mine does? I click "Edit", click to add a road, then click "View" at the top, and it asks me to confirm. What is this "Map" link, and what browser?

[Map] = [View] ;) My German version says [Karte], so I guessed (wrong) it was [Map]...

My browser for that matter is Opera 10.63 on a WinXP machine.

This will only happen once. I have learned to save every five minutes.

Twice. But now I have learned, too.

It should pop up a javascript alert box - potlatch2 knows when you have stuff to save (it enables the save button) and at the same time tells the html page to alert during the onbeforeunload event.

Unfortunately it appears that Opera are alone in not firing the onbeforeunload event. You should contact their support team and ask them to add support.
