Description

I start writing a post. After the first couple of paragraphs I decide to delete what I have done. I haven't saved yet.

To delete the draft post, I have to go to the Posts list and click Trash, because the Trash link on the edit page doesn't appear until after I have manually saved the page.

The Trash link should appear after the first autosave.

  • Keywords autosave trash added
  • Milestone changed from 2.9 to 3.0
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to feature request

I agree that that is a good idea, but since the behavior in 2.8 (when it was a Delete link appearing rather than a Trash link) worked this way, asking to change it is a feature request, and too late for 2.9. I'd like to see this get in early in 3.0, though. For 2.9 people will just do the same thing they've been doing in this situation.

I had already done this for 2.9 — someone just broke it. It's a one-line fix to re-enable it.
