#44129 new enhancement

Setting Privacy Policy page as existing page gives misleading alert

We have an existing Privacy Policy so using the new tools on 4.9.6 we selected our existing page and clicked 'Use This Page' on the Privacy Settings page. On completion of this action the page reloads with the alert 'Privacy policy page updated successfully. Remember to update your menus!' which made my heart skip a beat thinking the pages content was updated in some way. To avoid this panic and people asking what's been updated on their page maybe this message can be modified to indicate what actually happens, 'Privacy Policy page set successfully. Remember to update your menus!'.

Thank you

I get double alerts every time I select a different page (and click Use).

This happens even when I select "--Select--".

Thanks @joyously that appears to be a unique issue can you open a new Trac Ticket for it so it can be handled seperately. Appreciated
