I don't see the following: new formatting options available from the Edit Entry Screen I've installed the plugin but I can't figure out how to get it to work. Can somebody give me an idea what I might be missing? My brain is dead right now. Thank you for your time and way cool idea plugin.

You'll need to be using MT 2.6.

February 15, 2003 1:54 PM

Do you have any examples of what the formatting turns your text into?

Also, some of the filters (especially Jive and Cockney) might introduce some language that some people might find offensive. Make sure to preview your entry before you save it if this is a concern to you.

Right now, it processes the entire entry, including anything inside HTML tags. Since I didn't think anyone would actually use this plugin, I didn't put a whole lot of thought into the processing. I just wanted to be the first person to release a formatting plugin. But, since lots of people are using this, I'll look into making it more useful.

February 21, 2003 5:06 PM

Good work! A request, if possible... could you release a version where MovableJive appears only as one entry under the Text Formatting options, and uses tags instead of affecting the entire entry? Such as [jive] to activate the Jive filter and [/jive] to end it. That could be a possible solution for the corrupted URL problem, as well. Again, good work and thanks for this hilarious plug-in!

August 5, 2003 1:14 AM

as for your jive plug does it actually use jive terminology i.e. "Let me ask you something" would translate to "Let me pull your coat for a minute" or "I'm hungry" would translate to "I'm starvin like marvin". It seem this would require a rather advanced translator.

August 5, 2003 1:22 AM

Actually if you show me the guts of it I could probably add in phrase subsitutions. There are a number of good jive dictionaries around.

Adam Kalsey
August 5, 2003 7:52 AM

The filter does simple text substitutions to give the text you write a jive "accent." It doesn't change any phrases for you. If you want to add that, download the plugin and give it a shot.

that is pretty neat. for some reason the movable type plugin manager did not like installing it for me. it never has had any problems before with the .gz plugins, but did not like the for some reason. not a big deal, after installing it i was shickled titless. it is pretty neat and certainly deserves to be with tikitext despite not being quite as practical.

i manually installed this into my plugins directory, and nothing showed up in the entry edit screen. i then re-installed it through the plugins manager, and still nothing. is there something i'm missing here?
