#43655 closed enhancement (duplicate)

"Page updated" banner needs a timestamp or revision

When editing a page, clicking "UPDATE" causes a "Page updated view page" banner to appear.

However, if one continues to edit the page, The "Page updated" banner remains. Thus it is impossible to know whether all edits have been published without viewing the page.

In other words, the "Page updated" indicator is deceptive (or stale).

For me, this is a fairly common scenario: I work on a page and add information as it comes it. I update the page, but leave the editor open as new information will continue to come in through out the day. Of course, it is possible to refresh the page to remove the banner - but one then loses ones place in the editor. (Plus, it's slow if the page has a lot of media.)

  • Solutions might include:
  • Clearing the "Page updated" banner when any change is made in the editor;
  • Adding a date & time to the "Page updated" banner.
  • Adding the page revision number to the banner.
  • Adding a "modified" indicator to the editor.

I did do a search before creating the ticket, and that ticket didn't turn up.

I note that the open ticket is 3 years old, with last activity about 9 months ago. It seems that there is a debate about how to solve the problem.

It would be better to pick one than to search forever for a perfect solution. I added a star.
