wet_parachute is a plugin for Textpattern which enhances the Content > Write screen.
Have you ever lost one of your articles because you inadvertently closed your browser window or navigated away from the article edit screen without saving your changes? wet_parachute issues a warning on such occasions.
Install. Enable. Enjoy. No changes to your site required.
wet_parachute relies on the browser “unbeforeunload” event which is not supported across all browser brands. It silently pauses when it detects an uncapable browser.
|Browser||Warn before close?|
|Internet Explorer 10||Yes|
wet_parachute works with Textpattern 4.5.3+.
