So I’ve been working on updating my plugins to use the WordPress 2.0 features and be compatible too. I’m Currently working on my LMB^Box Comment Quicktags plugin which adds a Quicktags Toolbar to your Comment Area. As I was working on fixing and adding code, it hit me … why not create a plugin that would allow you to choose if to use a Quicktags Toolbar [OR] a WYSIWYG Editor (seeing that WP2 comes with a WYSIWYG Editor now). So I’ve been trying to work this out so that everything works smoothly, but I’m running into some issues. This is the first time that I’ve worked with TinyMCE Editor and I’m kind of playing catch-up … Right now I’m not too worried about TinyMCE’s config or settings, just how I’m to add it to the Comment Area’s textarea.
I think what I’m going to do right now is release an update for LMB^Box Comment Quicktags that just fixes problems and adds compatiblity for WP2. Anyway when I do get the WYSIWYG Editor side done and working, I’ll be renaming this plugin to LMB^Box Comment Editor seeing how as the plugin will be able to use either Quicktags Toolbar or WYSIWYG Editor, plus I’ll add a Comment Preview feature if you’re using the Quicktags Toolbar. I should have the updated plugin release by the end of today!
I’m going to hold off on releasing an update for my LMB^Box Smileys plugin since I’m planning to add more functionality to the Comment Quicktags plugin. With the next release of LMB^Box Smileys, a button will be add to the WYSIWYG Editor if you’re using it in both the Admin Write Page and Comment Form Area. Or you could always just add the link/button yourself …
I have a few other ideas for plugins to develop and I hope to start working on them soon. And of course, to continue to develop my LMB^Box FilePress system. Lets see where all this leads, shall we?
