Move files/folders more safely in File Manage

The 6.10 release introduces the ability to move files and folders in the File Manager.

While this is a great feature it’s also a pretty dangerous one for general admin users because admin users/content managers who are not that web savvy may not realise the effect this could have on many linked resources throughout the site.

I would suggest that the pop-up warning message that already displays, be styled and worded to reflect the possible dangers of this action, eg:

(Note the checkbox to acknowledge the action and the disabled “OK” button until confirmed via the checkbox)

WARNING: Moving files and folders will decouple any links/references made to those files/folders throughout your site. Complete this action at your own risk.
