cbe_swap_body_excerpt: as the name suggests (write tab)

I was recently asked to put the Excerpt input field before the Body.
I said yes, thinking that I could easily find such a plugin.
But despite my efforts, I failed.
Whether it already exists or not, I figured out it would be faster to write it. So I wrote it :)

For those who have the same need :

Changelog:
  • 23 Jan 14 – v1.0 – Initial release
  • 24 Jan 14 – v1.0.1 – Fixed: nothing displays if articles don’t use excerpts

The bot_write_tab_customize plugin can do this, and more other things. It’s for me one of the most important plugins.

Yes, I use bot_wtc too to move almost everything around. It is a client-side (javascript) oriented plugin.

Here is the whole story:
This time, I only need to display the excerpt input field before the body and nothing else. I preferred a server-side solution.
Plus: I will reuse the place left by the body to add another block (the help file explains how to do that). I’m not sure I could achieve this with bot_wtc and since I will have to develop a little piece of code and use the pluggable_ui, I thought I’d better completely do it in php :)

Well… it’s all about a matter of choice :)

Ah… Looking into it.

Edit: works perfectly on a fresh install. Probably a clash with another plugin.

This is a significant difference or argument.

Yes, you are right.

Quick fix : nothing was displayed if articles don’t use excerpts.
