Pyblosxom comment previews (and more)

In Pyblosxom 1.1 (coming soon), we've decided to unbundle plugins from the distribution. I've been merging a bunch of changes that people have made to the comments plugin. The new plugin is available here.

If you are already using the comments plugin, there is a significant change to the behavior. You will need to modify your comments-story.html template to have just the content that should appear between the end of story.html and comment.html. This will typically be a <div class="blosxomComments"> tag. If you see the body of your entry twice, you didn't modify the comments-story template.

Here's a list of the changes:

  • Comment previews [ Bill Mill ]
  • Users can configure the plugin to force all new comments into a "draft" mode where they have to be manually "published". Set py['comment_draft_ext'] to a filename extension. New comments are given this extension and must be renamed to have the regular comment_ext in order to published
  • Add a comment rejection callback allowing people to write their own comment rejection plugins. [ Will Guaraldi ]
  • Add $message variable so that users can see what happened to their comment: whether it was rejected, whether it was successful, whether it's in draft mode, ... [ Will Guaraldi ]
  • Stop stomping templates [ Will Guaraldi ]
  • Rich HTML mail notifications [ Roberto De Almeida ]
If there are more changes to the comments plugin lurking out there, please contact me. I'd like to merge more changes so that we can improve comments as much as possible.

You can use some HTML tags in the comment text:
To insert a URI, just type it -- no need to write an anchor tag.
Allowable html tags are: <a href>, <em>, <i>, <b>, <blockquote>, <br/>, <p>, <code>, <pre>, <cite>, <sub> and <sup>.

You can also use some Wiki style:
URI => [uri title]
<em> => _emphasized text_
<b> => *bold text*
Ordered list => consecutive lines starting spaces and an asterisk
