I have a client who keeps accidentally deleting pages from the draft site!
this is frustrating for her and wondered if there was a way to protect pages or if any9one has instigated a conformation dialog or similiar?

Thanks Mike

I am just discovering how ridiculously frustrating this is... I have built so many SS sites, but only now I am actually having to add a bunch of pages myself. If the Delete button is going to completely blow away a draft page, having it right next to the Save button is a monumental usability cluster f**k...

Perhaps the SS devs don't actually use the CMS either?

Phew! I found it...

In the Page Tree, set the 'Show' dropdown to 'All pages, including deleted'...
