possible codex search plugin suggestion? (4 posts)

    Hi - after reading the wp-docs mailing list, about the update newsletter or whatnot that is going to start coming out, and the mention of the plugin that allows to search the forums here for solutions/answers to questions, I had an idea, but I'm not quite sure what the best way to implement it would be (and it may not seem useful to anyone but me - who knows).
    I was thinking that using the above items might be even more useful if there was some kind of plug-in that would basically just create a "scratch sheet" for notes and code to be pasted onto, viewable only on the admin side - so if someone searched for something, found the answer, they could paste the code from the admin interface, and just easily browse over to it when they needed to see it again - basically just a place for notes/code for the memory-weak. Of course, this could just as easily be done by making a page or post admin access only, or just keeping a text file online, but I was wondering if there was a way to integrate this in to make it a little more seamless and accessible on the admin side.
    I, for one, continually have to go back to the codex and look up stuff I have looked up before, for the same reason. I know it is sheer laziness on my part, but still, I was just curious if anyone had any ideas about a good way to do this, or if it would be useful at all? I had actually fooled around with this by trying to use the mini-blog plugin for something like this, but I am too PHP inept to make it work right. Any ideas, or is this completely useless?

    CJD-Notes is good for taking notes.

    YES! - Thank you! I hadn't seen this plug-in before! You, my friend, just saved me asking the question "now what were those wp-list-cats arguments again?" a million more times! Somebody kiss this man for me!

    Also, if you're looking for a smaller and quicker solution, you can use masquerade's own WP-dash. It has a notes widget similar to post-it notes.
