Description

I hoped I was able to see the pages which I delete (in the trashbin) but the all stay dark... So I can't view them!

I think it would be a good feature to see them to see if somebody didn't delete the wrong page! Or when you need something form a deleted page that you can still get it without restoring it first

@JonezJeA What do mean by "readable"? You want to be able to go into the edit post screen for a trashed post?

I would suggest using the "draft" post status to inspect/edit a post's contents without publishing it.

However, this does bring up a minor UI/UX issue: when a post is in the trash, the user's only option is to "restore" the post's pre-trash status. Something that was once published that you trashed, you might want to take a look at again, but restoring it would mean making it a live post again, and then immediately change the post status to draft.
