Post locking prevents collaboration
|Reported by:||johnbillion||Owned by:|
Occasionally I'll discuss the content of a post with a colleague by opening the editing screen for that post at the same time as my colleague. It may be that neither of us are actively editing it, but we are discussing the content via VOiP or IM or whatever and both looking at it on the editing screen.
The new post editing lock prevents two people from having the editing screen for the same post open at the same time.
The above modal provides no option for dismissing the modal and viewing the editing screen. Preferably there would be a read-only mode of the editing screen, which disabled the buttons in the publish metabox.
I think this is quite important behaviour. Due to the nature of testing (ie. mostly solitary) it'll be unlikely that people have noticed the new behaviour until people start using it in production environments.
