Comment Text Formatting Extension

Sunday, March 05, 2006

Presenting another extension for you EE users out there.

This extension allows you to apply a custom text formatting plugin such as Textile or Markdown to comments. Rather than having to wrap your comment text with a plugin tag in your templates, you can just enable the extension and it’ll be applied automatically. The extension should work with any of the plugins in the Text Formatting category in the Plugin Library.

It’s being used on my site right now!

Download Version 1.2.0.


1.1.0 – Initial release
1.1.1 – Fixed bug where preview used the wrong hook
1.2.0 – Added option to specify text formatting via parameter in the comment display/comment preview tag

Just found this extension, however, I get an error if I select “Preview” rather than submit when I’m using the extension:
“Notice: Undefined index: comment in /home/somestuffremovedfromhere/extensions/ext.comment_text_format.php on line 77”. Any suggestions?

I notice that pressing Preview on this site also gives an error (all-be-it different).

I was using the wrong hook. Must have missed that when I was updating. Anyway I’ve fixed that now, with version 1.1.1, so download it again.

And thanks for letting me know the preview was broken. It’s still broken on this site (and why do I have a live preview and a comment preview at the same time? I just noticed this… upsidedown ), but I’m not sure if it’s because of this extension or because of another plugin I’m using – but I need to get to work now so I’ll have to figure this out later!
