#11676 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Restore AYS for posts, pages, comments when trash is disabled

When someone decides to disable trash, they are presented with no AYS dialog on delete. This is a regression from pre-2.9 functionality.

Yes, the whole point of trash was to rid the UI of AYS dialogs. I don't like AYS dialogs either and find trash+undo a great enhancement. But if a user doesn't want to use trash, or if a site admin doesn't want their users to use trash, then they should still be given an AYS to prevent accidental clicks and unsure deletes.

We provided admins with a way to disable trash if they so choose, which should restore them pre-2.9 functionality, but it doesn't.

We still have AYS in tags and categories, which makes this inconsistent across the UI. In #11673 we should be restoring it to media.

Starting this off at 2.9.1 as it is a regression (if the user doesn't want to use a feature that we gave them the ability to disable). With trash enabled by default, I don't have much of a problem if it is moved to 3.0 though.

+1, I should have left AYS for users with Trash disabled. I wasn´t thinking when I removed it...

I would upload a patch but I don´t have internet access at the moment (I´m in an internet café now), so I can´t really get involved in WP dev at present. :(
