Most likely this is cause by an exploitation of newpageboxplus
capability to save automatically a new page.
I would be very interested to know of a good way to include checking
of edit authorisation into the script.
Meanwhile, if you don't use the save=true option, just disable it in
the script by commenting in var $defaults
'save' => '',
'save' => '');
# 'save' => ''
Maybe I need to include a variable SDV($EnableAutoSave, false);
as default, to disable the auto saving option, and let admins decide
when they need to enable it. It is useful for simple forum for
example, as a way to create new topic pages, even by users who have no
edit rights granted. But obviously spammers could exploit this, as
they can on any open forum. Ideas?
