Reset Settings doesn't have confirmation dialog?! Ouch

I just accidentally hit "Reset Settings" at the bottom of an Atahualpa Theme Options page, because my arm slipped and the mouse clicked it.. And lo and behold, all the settings were reset, not even to the atahualpa version defaults, but to some other defaults.. And it didn't prompt me!

I thinks it's pretty important to implement a confirmation dialog for this button.. I'm lucky I only lost a few settings, but imagine if this had happened on my CSS page with hundreds of lines of code..

EDIT: in the meantime, I set the css of that button to display:none, so that it's completely gone from the admin screens

I am a FIRM believer in backing up, but I am not going to back up my database every 20 minutes, and a confirmation dialog is really not a bad idea to prevent the loss of any amount of work. I also believe that most Atahualpa users are not going to back up their database very often, further making such a dialog a good idea (in my opinion).

Thanks for the reply

This is a good idea and I've added it to the to do for 3.5.2 (see http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=7973)

With the new export/import option, I would encourage you to export the theme style on a regular basis.

I'm not the developer, Flynn is. I'm just a user who Flynn asked to become a forum moderator
