Front-end Editor
A couple bugs and a feature request (12 posts)

    I love this plugin, so thank you thank you thank you!

    Now that I have that out of the way, a couple of problems when I have "edit individual paragraphs" enabled:

    1. An initial paragraph that ends with no blank line separating it from <!--more--> is not editable
    2. I am using markdown (I have the WYSIWYG editor off), and when I finish editing it always shows me my markup instead of the final product. I have to do a page refresh to get it

    And my feature request: an alternate way to activate editing. I tend to double-click text and highlight it while reading. Who knows why, but it's a habit. Very disconcerting when I'm suddenly editing the page. For example, single-click to get a popup menu, and select from the menu to start editing.

    Thanks again!

    Oops, one more "bug:" an interaction with the hackadelic sliding notes plugin. When I click a sliding note to expand it, it slides open, then closes immediately. Had to disable FEE to make it work again :-(

    That's due to the way WP adds <p> tags. You'll have to add a line break before and after <!--more-->.

    Which plugin are you using for that?

    Yeah, I saw your older thread:

    Still haven't found a good solution yet.

    I'm using PHP Markdown Extra with the patch shown at the bottom of http://cpp-next.com/posting/

    Sorry for doubling down on that feature request ;-)

    How about this interface: when you hover over a paragraph, instead of highlighting the whole thing, optionally show a small "edit" (pencil) button at the top-right of the paragraph (or of the visible text area, whichever comes last)?

    P.S. Did you note the reported "hackadelic sliding notes" interaction?

    The "hackadelic sliding notes" problem is fixed in the latest dev version.

    Yeah, I was thinking of something along the same lines.

    Is that something I can get ahold of?

    Fantastic; thanks so much for that. However, I've got a new issue: with "edit by paragraph" enabled, none of the code samples or headings at http://cpp-next.com/archive/2010/09/expressive-c-playing-with-syntax/#more-1679 seem to be editable.

    To test that, I will need the raw post content, as it appears in the backend HTML editor.

    I'd be happy to, if you tell me where to send it. Note also that I have quite a few plugins in effect (markdown w/syntax highlighting, latex, ...)

    You could use something like http://wp.pastebin.ca/

    Otherwise, mail it to scribu@gmail.com

    Well, I've made some progress with this, but the likelihood of it working reliably with such heavily processed content is slim.

    So, I recommend disabling paragraph editing.
