Inline Title/subtitle editing?


Der Kaiser

Recommended Posts

At my forum, we kind of stick to the mantra, that looking better, makes people post better. Part of this, a huge part, is keeping titles nice and clean, free of typos, and extra letters, (not like "omggggggg look at thisssss", in fact that would get someone e-slapped). A large part of this war on stupid titles was inline editing for titles and subtitles. I see that the new forum has title editing, but the description, or subtitle is pretty much set in stone. If you want to edit it, even the edit button is useless, as the title and subtitle are not part of the editable content. The only option appears to be through the moderation dropdown for that topic.

Unless I am missing something, which i hope i am, and someone points out to me, could someone please explain to me why this has been changed? It seemed like invision was taking steps to make moderation much easier, and overall, that's been achieved, but i feel this single oversight might undo all the saved time those improvements freed up :(

Cheers in advance
Chris

Probably just none of us had really used it so it was overlooked as the inline moderator was cleaned up.

Something we could look into for 3.1 I suppose.

If you edit the first post in a topic, for the record, you should have access to edit title/description fields.

Yes thats correct, I should have specified that only happened on the quick edit. I overlooked the "use full editor" button. My apologies. How hard would it be to edit this myself? is the code for it modular, or no? would it be as simple as calling a function and adding a new button, so to speak (with more to it obviously)

It kind of depends on your skill levels (I don't know how proficient you are).

On the plus side the backend PHP code to save a quick-edited topic description is all still there. It's just the interface (which is handled through javascript entirely) that would need to be added. I'd guess you'd add a button in the HTML, similar to the one to edit the topic title, then add a JS observer like we have for the topic title button in the ips.topic.js, and finally add the function to handle saving the description. If you look at how the topic title is done between these areas, and note that the php code for saving the description is there (though of course, not really tested since there's no interface to test it presently) it might not take you long.
