[plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_resize: Textarea Resizing

The rss_admin_resize plugin allows you to customize the size of the primary textareas and input fields while editing articles, pages, styles and forms. Your settings can be completely customized on a new tab that will be added to your admin interface (admin -> resize). If you work on multiple computers you’ll be able to customize the sizing for each to maxmize your workspace. The plugin has been tested out in Firefox, Opera, and even appears to work in IE.

Nice work, thanks a lot.

Since you are at it, I have a question :p Would it be difficult for an admin plugin to add text inside the tab’s page content ?

I would like to add text (and hyperlink) mainly in the writers/authors areas (article tab, files, links, etc.) to give advice, explain things, rules, and so on.

I was going to hack the files, but if a admin plugin could do it that would be much better.

In short, yes, thats exactly how plugins such as this one or rss_admin_quikpik work.

You have the ability to use javascript to modify the DOM of any page. It can be a bit tricky though depending on how involved the changes and/or additions are. What I can tell you without a doubt is that Firefox’s DOM Inspector is indispensable if you’re going to write a plugin to do this.

I’m not :( I have absolutely no javascript knowledge, but I mean… none. But that’s good news, maybe someone will do it :)

Yeah I had the same issue, marios, and also I wanted to modify the excerpt area size, so this will come in very handy !

Great plugin, wilshire.

One issue: in Opera 8beta3 the resizing doesn’t work for all input fields. The title works ok, but article and excerpt textareas don’t.

Perhaps (I haven’t tested it) it’s the input elements that work and textareas that don’t.

andreas – I tested in Opera 7.54u2 and the plugin seems to work fine. I thought someone had told me it worked in beta3 but can you see if its generating any javascript errors?
