Just been doing a bit of housekeeping on a few of my sites (Joomla 3.x) and this feature has been (slightly) annoying me.
Basically whenever I delete an article or item from the back end of my site, it firstly goes into the trash. I then have to go into the trash and empty it. Not a huge issue, many may see this as a benefit. However I feel that a one click 'delete' solution would be beneficial. Currently it adds an extra step to an already tedious process.
I was having the same issue when deleting some categories and menu items. I was unable to re-create categories and menu items with the same name because on already existed - but where? The trash. Once the trash was emptied it was fine again.
If anybody has suggestions on how to implement such a feature I would be most interested, or if I am missing something and have been using Joomla incorrectly all this time please do tell.
Hope this makes sense to somebody.
