creating a menu item on creating new article

hi

in joomla 1.5 first we must create an article and save it!
then we should go to Menu list and create a new menu item for that article

but I want to develop a plugin that give the user the this ability:
when the author wants to create a new article something like this displayed:
Image

instead of going to menu list and create a article layout menu item:
Image

can any body guide me to do that?

This is good idea and I'm also thinking for this.

its much time consuming process when website having more pages(>25-50) and each time creating a menu for each article.

In Drupal, they give the functionality to create a menu combined with creating a new content as you sketch above.

this was actually possible in previous versions of Joomla
don't know when they removed it, but could be usefull to check out older versions

NoNumber.nl has a useful extension that helps a bit with this. Perhaps not as versatile as we might like, but a step forward for things like this.
