    hi David,

    good to hear the plugin is progressing. have you fixed the issue where adding certain things in TINYMCE would cause you to lose data? For example tables, block quotes, styles, etc.

    thanks,
    Deryk

    Hi Deryk,

    I believe I have fixed this but I will perform some proper checks over the course of this week (feel free to nag me if I don't get back to you).

    I noticed that you posted an intention to work on a 'group pages' plugin. Any progress with this? It sounds like it could be a nice replacement for bp-wiki.

    I'll check out your plugin again. The only reason I would write the plugin I described was because of the fatal flaws in previous versions of your plugin. I'd rather not re-invent the wheel if your plugin is now working properly. A wiki plugin that loses data is a pretty serious bug, that is why I stopped all work on your plugin. It would be great to know definitively if this is fixed or not. thanks :)

    Just to update you - blockquoting seems to be okay, though I need to add a css rule (feel free to suggest one if you have a preference).

    Style tags don't lose content though they get converted to html commenting tags... Obviously this isn't optimal as the content within the style tag is then only viewable in edit>html view. I'll look into sorting this shortly.

    hey David, thanks for the reply. I think less is more at this point. fewer features and very stable. I noticed a bug that when you are editing a post you cannot edit the title. why not remove the ajax from title editing, and just make it editable when you edit the post - like wordpress does with posts.

    Boone and I need a plugin that offers similar functionality as yours and we made some suggestions about your plugin here https://github.com/boonebgorges/bp-wiki/issues. In the end it might be easier for us to code something from scratch.

    take care,
    Deryk

    a really nice fix would be to set the default privacy of wiki pages based on the group setting. A private group should default to having a private blog. This has confused users.

    Another coding suggestion: don't have a separate function for edit and create. That is the golden rule of code modularity and will save you so much headache in the future.
