Slash Plugins and Themes

This morning I woke up and started coding. It figures, I get in the mood, and it's beautiful outside. It's supposed to be in the 80's today. Nice.

Maybe I'll ride the bike in the afternoon.

Anyway, I was working on two things this morning. One was this bug and the other is the faq plugin.

I had wanted Cliff to post some info into one of the faq's. But he couldn't figure out how to do it. So I set down in the mindframe of someone who hadn't use the faq plugin before - and hell, I couldn't figure out how to do it.

So it needed some work. Sometimes it's amazing how you can code something up, it makes perfect sense to you, but others look at it and go "whoa".

One of the things I added were reply 'buttons'. That way, if someone posts a question or answer, you can hit reply and post a comment about it. The subject of the question/answer carries over to the post.

What I found out, however, is that you can't prepopulate the body of a comment with data when calling comment.pl?op=reply

My guess as to why that is - to discourage people from putting the parent post's body text into their post, whether italiced/indented etc.

Have a look at it running here or it's src via cvs. Most of the changes are cosmetic, and are in the templates.
