Just a little update — 11 Comments

  1. There is yet again something unsolicited in your inbox. (Solict? Ohhh ahhh Father!)

  2. Technology always defeats the adventurous. Oh, and the NHS and every government.

  3. It’s a well-known fact that when you’ve finally found a program that sort-of suits your needs, and tweaked it a bit to make it even more useful … something then goes awry.

    • The actual saying, among older computery guys, was ‘if it isn’t broken then it doesn’t have enough features yet’

  4. I think I found the change that affected your little editor buttons. To wit:

    Text-Editor JavaScript API

    With the addition of TinyMCE to the text widget in 4.8 comes a new JavaScript API for instantiating the editor after page load. This can be used to add an editor instance to any text area, and customize it with buttons and functions. Great for plugin authors!

    That plus the fact (as you said) the original plugin author had basically abandoned the plugin is probably the culprit(s) in the this latest engine room failure.

    Now, since the the quote above states you can use the new API to add an editor to any text area perhaps you could write your own little plugin for the comment field? I know you have the brains for it?

    • I know you have the brains for it?” I’m glad you stuck a question mark after that. My plugin skills are somewhat limited and my Javascript skills are basic to put it mildly. It might be an interesting project to dust off rusty skills?!!
