Detect and warn of duplicate title/slug when creating new post

    It could be a helpful feature to detect if a new post has a title or slug identical to one already created, and instead of JUST appending a number to the slug, display a quick message alerting the user that there is already a post with that title. The alert could contain a link to the post so the user could quickly view the post and decide if they wish to continue with the duplicate, or discard it and return to the pre-existing post.

    I have seen examples for either use case, there are often posts that are published periodically with identical titles, but when you are dealing with a large number of posts it could be really helpful to know if there is already a post in the system with that name.
