no such thing as too many widgets

so. you know the handy formatting buttons in the MT interface? (well, in IE, i can’t use ‘em myself on my main puter, *sigh*) well. you will now find them above the comment box. they work just like they do in MT, that is, highlight the text in question and it will make it bold, italic, underlined, or a URL. i forget where i saw this today, but when i did i thought, hey! i bet that’s easy! and, well, it was.

question: since i made them text links so they go with all the various skins, do you think there should be further instructions, so folks know what they are? then again, i like to make sure my comment boxes are like programming a VCR, according to some people, so this would be right in line with that … :)

    Thank you, ma’am! We’ll see; the MT forums have a long discussion which comes to a conclusion, but it’s a little unclear as to whether the final answer in the thread is all that’s needed, or whether it’s in addition to the previous code.

    well, give it a shot, it might work? and i’ll keep an eye peeled for other MT blogs that use this (i know i’ve seen them)

    Thanks. I’ve been keeping my eyes open too, but naturally when I want to find examples I can’t.

    Cute! Way cool! And I just know you want to point me along the path to do this…

    Not sure I even understand this question. Is this another one of those ways that MAC people are oppressed?

  7. kd says:

    well … yeah, kind of.

    i try not to oppress y’all, but since i don’t have a mac to test on, it’s like feeling my way around in the dark

  8. kd says:

    aww, bran, hugs right back atcha.

    Ok, widget freak, how do I get an “open links in new window” checkbox or something into MT 2.5?
