Usability of "Minor Change" checkbox.

The "Minor Change (No Notifications will be sent)" check box is a major annoyance that results in 1000s of unecessary spam messages that cause people to ignore said messages.

This could be easily fixed by:

1) Remove the Minor Change checkbox and text

2) Use these action buttonss at the foot of the page:

[Save Only] [Save and Send Notifications] [Cancel]

Assuming this is a question... if you go to confluence admin -> custom html -> at the end of head, and paste in the following, it should do what you want:

<script type="text/javascript">
    AJS.$(function () {
        var minorEdit = AJS.$("#minorEdit");
        if (minorEdit.length) {
            minorEdit.parent().toggle();
            AJS.$("input[type='submit'][name='confirm']").each(function () {
                AJS.$(this).clone().click(function () {
                    AJS.$("#minorEdit").attr('checked', 'true');
                }).val('Save (No notifications)').insertAfter(AJS.$(this));
            })
        }
    });
</script>

Just for information. We wanted to have the checkbox disabled by default (to prevent accidental SPAMMING ;-)

It's as easy as this (put at the same place like indicated above)

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function () {
  AJS.$('#notifyWatchers').attr('checked', false);
});
</script>

Hi, a small correction :

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function () {
  AJS.$('#minorEdit').attr('checked', false);
});
</script>

Is this necessary in confluence 4.2 ?

(the other script is definetly working in 4.1)

Hi Svenni, I did test it with Confluence 3.5, and there "notifywatchers" got me an error.

Confluence v3 requires the box be checked to not notify users as it's asking, "Is this a minor edit?" Therefore:

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function () {
  AJS.$('#minorEdit').attr('checked', true);
});
</script>

Confluence 4.x+ is the opposite, it's asking, "Should I notify people of your change?", therefore you don't want the box checked. The ID for the box is also different.

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.bind('init.rte', function() {
  AJS.$('#notifyWatchers').attr('checked', false);
});
</script>
