Trying to integrated quicktags.js in comment form (10 posts)

    I've seen a number of blogs provide a selection of buttons used to markup text in their comments. I'm trying to do that on my blog, but am having some difficulty.

    I tried integrating the comments form found on the Rin theme into my Blix theme, but I can't even get the thing to show up. I was told that it was based on the script at Alex King's site (http://www.alexking.org/index.php?content=software/javascript/content.php)
    . From the looks of that site, it requires a lot more knowledge than I have because I can find no instructions at all...just a bunch of code.

    Anyone here know how to make this code work? My test blog is http://familywebwatch.com/blog_test/2005/04/18/latest-id-theft-scam-could-be-in-your-inbox/

    Thanks for any help!

    Okay, I'm making progress. The buttons are showing and functioning.

    I've reviewed the plugin code and saw where the buttons are, but I can't find where the "Dict." and "Close Tags" buttons are programmed.

    Where are those coming from and what does "Close Tags" do exactly? I figured it would close the tags, but evidently that's not what it's about because it didn't do that.

    Okay, I tried the "close tags" in IE and saw that it indeed closed the tags (frustrating that FF doesn't do it).

    So now my other question remains: where are those buttons coming from if not in the plugin code? I'm thinking about removing the "close tags" button, but can't do that until the code is found.

    [of course, this means that it's probably staring me right in the face :P, but perhaps a fresh pair of eyes and wisdom could help ]

    Oh I see now. It's locating that file. Thanks for helping me connect the dots, Kaf! :)

    How does one change the width of the tags showing up on the comments form? The tags appear when I aply the quicktags plugin, but in two columns and quite wide!
