After editing a CDN article, and submitting it, there is no completion message. Instead, you get the edit page back again, which prompts the user to submit the changes. This led me to submit a change at least twice.
Steps to Reproduce:
Go to a CDN article, like:

Click the "Edit content" link at the top of the page

Wait until the edit page loaded completely.

Press the submit button at the bottom center of the page.

Exp: page thanking the user and confirming the completion of the action
Act: Same edit page.

The page is designed to bring you back to the editing interface after an update is posted. What's missing is a confirmation that your update has been posted. If you don't notice the updates to the page, it's not that obvious. We need to add a UI element, that can fade away, that tells you your edits have been submitted.

Note that GetPublished is completely stateless, which makes it easier to run in a load balanced environment. A direct confirmation requires maintaining state, so we should think of another way of informing the user of recent changes.
