UPDATE: EnhancedEntryEditing has been bumped up to v1.01 to fix a bug where popup windows wouldn't disappear after you were done with them. Grab the update, you only need to upload EnhancedEntryEditing.pl
- Resizable Textareas - I personally find the textareas on the entry screen too small and find it annoying to hack the stylesheet everytime I upgrade Movable Type. This plugin now adds "Increase Size" and "Decrease Size" controls to the Entry Body and Extended Entry fields that enlarge and shrink the textareas respectively.
- WYSIWYG Editor - One of the most popular hacks on Movalog is the one to implement HTMLArea into the entry screen. Unfortunately, it can be quite intimidating to hack the files, and is highly annoying when you lose them during an upgrade. As a result, EnhancedEntryEditing implements a WYSIWYG editor directly into the entry screen for you, all you need to is drop the plugin in the correct directories. It doesn't implement HTMLArea but TinyMCE . This is a similar editor but far more powerful and it also solves the problem of the editor loading on older entries.
For a better idea of how it is integrated, take a look at this screenshot. In the coming days, I will be releasing more plugins that are part of Ajaxify, these include a plugin that provides a seach suggestion feature and a plugin that adds several inline editing controls.
Go grab your copy of the first Ajaxify plugin.
A big thank you to Brad Choate who implemented several improvements.
