I’m experiencing the same troubles as GugUser, it seems. Given the juicy changes to the Write tab, it’s no surprise that this plugin would be affected, but are we the only ones?

Everyone would be experiencing the same troubles caused by layout changes, yes. It’s not just random or configuration based. Not that many have even (yet?) updated to Textpattern 4.5 and using bot_wtc on it. Give it some time, the base that is affected will grow, but not everyone will be posting about it. Some will silently fork their private code w/o sharing it (I would say that is very common) and others just move on or don’t feel like reporting (live with the errors).

But when you do wonder why there aren’t reports of this or that, we small. Take a look at the total page view count (not unique or users) of this thread for instance. Under 50,000. Now, what do you think is the user base that is up to date or cares.

Thanks, Gocom! I don’t have the wherewithal to fork the plugin and fix it, but I can hold out for the real thing. I’m very grateful for your confirmation that the problem isn’t just my configuration.

Re: bot_write_tab_customize: rearrange and style items in the write tab

Hi all!
I apologize for being away for so long. I was just a little burnt out with anything web related. I didn’t even know of txp 4.5!
Just give me some time to update myself about the new txp version …and some other time to re-understand my own plugin code.
I’ll try to fix these issues asap ok?
Cheers

Re: bot_write_tab_customize: rearrange and style items in the write tab

Hello redbot,

The admin-side flat HTML mockups in my github repo might help if you are considering an update to bot_write_tab_customise – a lot of IDs, classnames and structure was changed (for the better) in Textpattern 4.5, and those mocks are a quick way of referencing that.

Cheers, Red! I’d be glad to be your laboratory rodent, too, if it helps Science in any way.

Thanks Phil!
It will help for sure, even if I think it will take some time.
BTW I can’t wait to try the new themes, they look gorgeous!

Re: bot_write_tab_customize: rearrange and style items in the write tab

Version 0.7.2 is out.
This release should work with the new textpatttern 4.5.

A note on upgrade
Since some ids and classes in txp 4.5 are changed, if you are upgrading from a previous version you have to delete and rewrite some rules manually (I should have written an upgrade script but this is a quickier way).
In particular you have to rewrite only the rules containing these items:

  • article navigation
  • more
  • comments
  • save|publish

Until I receive some feedback I’ll consider this a beta version. If it is confirmed to work I’ll update the download link in the first post.
Please let me know if everything works.

Download v. 0.7.2 here
