    Hi...
    Although only the early stages, I think your plugin will be a great assett to any wp-blogger. Well Done..!!

    Can you please explain what the code in the js/notes.xml file is for?
    (i,e. file remote="129819361200000000" local="129819361200000000" - and the other two instances!)

    Thanks...

    G@zza, thanks for the kind words! I'm definitely very new at this.

    The notes file is a extra Dreamweaver note tracking system, they're automatically inserts them into folders when you're working on projects. Thought I had deleted all of them, but obviously missed one!

    I've removed the folder from the latest dev version and the 1.1 tag - you're free to delete that as well, it serves no purpose. Thanks for pointing that out, much appreciated :)

    Hi Eric

    Kind Words are well deserved...!! :-)
    Thanks for sharing your "project".

    Maybe you would like to add some new "keywords" (change the tiltle) to your project..?

    The Reason:
    There is a "new" law which recently came into force in the UK/EU.
    e-Privacy Directive - 26th May 2012.

    You now have to (should - by law) tell your site visitors about "cookies" - and give them an option to accept (a cookie) or decline..!!
    In my "vast" web experience: Your project is ideally suited for this. Therefore, by changing the name "should" get you "loads" of "free" publicity.... & lots (loads) of plugin downloads... :-)

    Just my opinion..?

    This is a really interesting idea. It's been stuck in my head for the last few weeks, and you're totally right - legally, this plugin needs to inform browsers that cookies are being used.

    I am not sure whether to create an option for the plugin that allows users to accept/decline cookies, or to let people handle that themselves. This project does almost fit the bill, but needs modification to allow or disallow cookies.

    I'll keep this in mind as we move forward, and hopefully the solution will present itself somewhere! As always, thanks for your feedback.
