Is there a chance to change this mod that only global mods and admins can see and enter the reason for editing?

sbarnes

Great little mod,
How would you set the default reason if someone didnt enter one.

e.g if someone edited their post but did not put in a reason, it could say "no reason given"

I can make the field contain the text by default by:
<tr>
<td valign="top" align="right">
<b>Reason For Edit:</b>
</td>
<td>
<input type="text" name="edit_reason" size="50" value="No Reason Given" />
</td>
</tr>';


But how could this be done and have the text field left blank as if people see it is already filled in with something they are more likely to not change it.

OK, I'll put an option in features and options about who to show the box to.

Next version will not display a reason if they don't specify one, I don't see why you'd want the reason to stay though because someone usually wouldn't edit the post for the same reason the person before did, and it would be confusing as to who edited the post for the reason.

It doesnt matter but I think you have mis-understood what I meant, or I wrote it wrong.

What I meant was, because the reason for editing text area is not 'required' (it does not need to be filled in to continue - it is optional), the editor can choose to leave it blank.

This then prints on screen: <last edit, blah, blah, Reason:>
with obviously no reason there.

If the editor did not enter a reason the script could input 'Not given' or 'no reason given'

Alternativley not show the 'reason:' at the end of the line.

winrules

I think you mis-understood my answer :P, I meant that it wouldn't whos the ", Reason:" if you didn't specify one.

soon.
mabye I'll release 1.1 with just that and some permissions for who can use it, and then in 2.0 I could do a pick-list of reasons (that is user-congufurable).

Who-whoooo! Then I'll wait for 2.0 ;)

winrules

Version 1.1 has been released! This version adds permissions to who can specify a reason (change them in features and options) and doesn't display a reason if one isn't specified.

Removed the previous version, installed the 1.1 version which installed fine.
Trouble is, its as if the mod has not been installed! no reason for edit box, no settings in admin. Uninstalled again fine.

Any ideas?

#11
I'm trying to install this on 1.1 RC2 and I keep getting a page can't be displayed error after clicking the install link. Then when I go back to the packages page, it says its installed but nothing shows up when I go to edit a post.

[Edit]
Just tried it on a fresh install of 1.1 RC2 with no other mods. It went through the install, but no options are showing up for it and the reason for editing box doesn't show up when I modify a post.

winrules

Wierd, I can't seem to replicate it though. Could you pm me your post.template.php?

OK, I've figured out what's causing it, If you were having problems please uninstall you're ucrrent version and re-download it, I have uploaded an updated version (but I didn't change the version number because there wern't very many downloads).

it still shows "Reason" even though no reason was set.

i.e. for posts that were edited before this mod.

1.1 was supposed to fix that...I think I forgot to put it in the install files...I will fix it ASAP.
