  2. I think it’d be great if you wrote a drop-down menu that integrated directly into the Write Page section on the Admin console so that you could select any of your templates and have them directly insert into the page.

    I’m not sure how feasible that is, but if nothing else you could work with the WordPress team to have your plug-in integrated into the next release of WordPress, because this capability is something that just makes sense to have.

    Thanks,

    I had considered adding something to the admin screen, but decided to just release the plugin and worry about fluff such as that later on. I’ll reconsider it. :)

    As for integration, nah, things like this are best left to plugins as the majority of users probably wouldn’t use it anyway. ;)

  5. Thanks for the great plugin!

    I made a minor change to templatedia.php which allows for easy access to metadata / custom fields in templates. For example, if a post has a custom field called ‘location’ with the value ‘Relaxing on the beach.’, putting “Location: {{WP:location}}” in a post or template will result in “Location: Relaxing on the beach.”.

    If you’d like to include this feature in future versions, I’m including the diff between my version and the original below.

    Thanks again for the great plugin!

  7. Hello,

    I think it’s amazing that so many systems have been created for mass creation of blogs as well as mass formatting and insertion of articles into blogs, all of these using variable place holders (to pick a very generic term)integral to these applications which are very popular with the VRE-type, heavy “Adsense Empire” type folks, and yet the common-sense utility of this plug in that enables similar efficiency and speed in a one-blog-at-a-time mode has been largely missed by so many bloggers.

    Whew, that was a long sentence. I agree that the majority might not use the drop down menu mentioned but it is for the same reason, that simply the I think most are still very unused to media wiki type variables. It’s an education thing, and if WP itself adopted it, there’d be a learning curve but I think most would pick it up after a bit.

    I don’t think your plug in has fallen through the cracks but it could be much more widely adopted, for sure. I was looking for a basic user manual, some kind of handy reference, but as I recall you refer users to the relevant section of Mediawiki, correct? I wonder if they (Mediawiki) would mind that being excerpted and bundled with the plug in as a pdf or text reference? Maybe with a preface special to the plugin…

    Anyway, just thoughts, I rarely have time to comment these days… THANK YOU!!! Please don’t discontinue this!!! We do appreciate your work very much. :D

  8. Are you going to be adding support for the various parser functions (eg {{ #if }})?

    Those would make this quite a bit more flexible. Also, if possible, a way to convert content of paramiters to URL friendly format (eg This is Wikipedia would become This%20is%20Wikipedia)

    I could always accomplish this using <?php blocks, but that is overly complex.

  9. Hey assface. If you’re going to make a plugin at least make it work. When I paste the diff it fucks everything up. I’m pissed as hell and your shit plugin is the reason.
