Hey 14rhb ,
Oh dear. That doesn't sound good, and I'm not sure I want to know about what triggered this request
However, it's feasible we might be able to get whatever content you've lost back if you give me some details. Feel free to move to private messaging if that is easier or preferable.
As for your request - the system should popup a warning before deleting content.
It could be you've hit on a circumstance that doesn't popup the popup of course, at which point I'll put in a ticket to get that changed.
Thank you for your reply. Firstly - don't feel bad for me, I haven't lost anything currently . It was just something I was worried about, and in the back of my mind I'm sure it has happened.
I wan't aware of the warning message. I have just made a test blog and then deleted the draft - so I get that nice extra step, which is great to know. Does the same happen to a roadtest application - I've a vague idea that was when I lost something a year or so ago after clicking delete.
I just made a test roadtest application and that also prompts if I try and delete....my worries have now all gone
I shall have a biscuit!
Dear E14 Content team and fellow E14 members,
Looking at the content quality on Element14 I'm sure I am not the only person who spends many days creating a roadtest application or detailing a project progress. Whilst editing I am always aware that a careless slip with the mouse will activate the 'delete' option. The risk of this increases dramatically towards the end as I flip back and forth with the editor making sure my content layout looks correct on screen, tweaking the text again and again. I'm sure I've clicked the delete before and lost the entire article. What I often do now is to switch to HTML mode in the Jive editor, select the entire text and paste it into a text editor and then save it.
Therefore I wonder it is possible to setup Jive to prompt for confirmation when deleting content?
Alternatively, is there a bin that if we ask nicely we can have content restored from?
