I think this is an improvement and the implementation looks reasonable.

Summary: Prevent double submission on admin formsUse JavaScript to prevent double submission of admin forms
Type: BugCleanup/optimization

I found an article titled JavaScript: Preventing Double Form Submission which might be worth reviewing. In particular, it points out "Rather than simply disabling the button, we can also change the text so that people don't get confused."

Did you consider trying to add some tests for the patch?

I share Nick's concern on the pull request that this may have a good chance of causing some regression in unconsidered edge cases. I'm not sure if it's considered a best practice these days. The article suggests that some browsers (e.g. IE11) treat a double click as a single click. It seems unfortunate if every project has to add something like this.

Hi Karan,

Thanks for the input. Your fix includes the changes Nick suggested from the original PR. (Great.)

To get this merged we need to address Tim's concerns.

  • Can we add some selenium tests, to exercise the behaviour?
  • What's your assessment of the article Tim linked to? Do we need (still) to do this?

Hi Carlton,

  • I am unable to reproduce the behavior, probably because till now, I am serving on localhost.
  • In the article, there are different methods of implementing the same. One improvement can be changing the label of the submit button after a click.
  • From the point of usability, there is just a comment by someone, which also doesn't seem concrete.

Please guide me on how to proceed further.
