#6619 new enhancement

permalink field misleading in page editor: it displays the erroneous values

if you create a sub-page, the permalink field should display the proper permalink.

currently, if you have:


and when you create:


the permalink shows:


until it gets saved

the expected behavior would be for it to show the correct permalink.

the same remark applies when you then change the permalink. if the parent is no longer page, but rather page-2, then the permalink should update accordingly.

The only way to do this would be to fire the autosave when the parent is changed I guess.

fetching the parent page's permalink (or the site's url) without autosaving also works
