Hello list,

my mail didn't get through, because I was using the wrong sender-address 
again :-(

I was writing Michael (who got the mail...) that I am using


for such things. I've added a small feature to insert the current date 
into the added data and fixed a bug so that it would work with CleanUrls 
as well.


> Some of the simple things I'd like to do:
> 1) have a (:commentbox:) that has the same behavior as having the page 
> named "Diary" (e.g. the way the formatted results look with only the 
> date, ...)
> 2) have a (:commentbox:) that just creates a list item (so the entire 
> formatting is "* comment text\n"
> 3) have a (:commentbox:) that asks for a 1-line title in addition to the 
> text itself, and creates postings that are blog-like.
> I think that 1 and 2 simply involve changing the values of various 
> strings, but I'm neither sure of how to set the values nor how to do 
> this on a per-page basis. (different pages on the same Wiki do different 
> things).
> I am thinking that this (definitely #3, but maybe just having a 
> parameterized comment box to do #1 and #2) will involve at least some 
> hacking of the commentboxplus recipe.
> I'd appreciate any advice on how to do this.  Even more basic things 
> like how do I learn the basics of hacking inside of PMWiki (like, what 
> does "SDV" do? - and where is it documented).
> Sorry if this is a newbie question, my PHP skills aren't quite up to 
> understanding the code to the cookbook entries
> thanks!
