Since a few days or weeks ago, when I am editing a post and somebody else submits an edit (directly, no review needed), I see a banner above my editor:
There has been an edit made to this post. Click to load
(it's probably not literally that, forgive me not remembering the text correctly)
However, even if I don't click that banner but click inside the editor to navigate the cursor or just go on typing, the page reloads and kicks me out of the editor, sending me back to the standard post view with the other person's edit applied.
All my work so far has vanished. If I click on the
edit link again, I can edit the current version from scratch, but what I've written before is gone.
This is a serious issue, please stop trashing the work of editors if another concurrent edit gets submitted.
First, you should make the page reload only if the banner above the editor gets clicked, not on any other click/typing event anywhere else.
Second, please cache the editor's unsubmitted changes if they click the banner and reload it (or ask whether to load it or the new post revision) when they click on the
editlink afterwards again.
