I was using wordpress today and I noticed the message they show when an autosave version is different than the one on the current page. Here's a screenshot of it:

I really like how this looks, and I think it would be the best option for notifying the user that autosaved changes have been detected.SJK 23:17, 2 February 2009 (EST)

I agree that that notification looks nice and is effective. Ironically, Anthony lost an edit today on his first day doing open notebook science in Osley's lab!
  • Added better autosave notification mentioned above
  • Added support for loading jquery library from google servers, with ability to disable it within LocalSettings.php

  • Various bug fixes for enabling/disabling extension
  • Switched to custom image for enabling/disabling extension (icon shows up in upper right hand corner, but only on edit pages).

Enabled: Image:Cmorse_notebook_LiveSaver_enabled.png Disabled: Image:Cmorse_notebook_LiveSaver_disabled.png

With these updates the plugin is probably ready for some real testing.

After using the wiki so much recently I can see how useful this extension could be; I have lost work a couple times in the past week for various reasons.
