Bug Description

There should be a warning message when you attempt to delete one of your journals when it contains journal entries. Otherwise, accidental deletion will happen quickly.

Similarly to the deletion of folders / files, the pop-up window should say something along the lines of "You are attempting to delete a journal. This journal contains entries that are used in ... pages." There should also be a warning message that you delete a journal with entries even if the entries are not used in portfolio pages.

Hi Kristina;

When I attempted to delete an journal I got a warning message.
Did you enable javascript when you tested this?

Hi Son,

Mhh. It does work on my 1.6 install. Sorry, I can't remember where I tested it. Should have written it down.

I do see the popup window now. Still, it only says that you are deleting the journal. I think the message could be improved along the lines of what I suggested earlier to state that the journal entries will also be deleted that are used in pages (or even if they are not used). The easiest will probably be just to update the lang string and include "All entries in this journal will also be deleted and not available for inclusion in pages." The other suggestion of stating that X number of journal entries are used in Y number of pages is a bit more involved.
