This entry is there to commit my enhancements to the Plugins:TagMePlugin to add different UI styles, with a simpler "blog-like" one: style=blog.

Since I wanted to have a more "standard" UI for the tags (a bit like the proposal by Arthur), something more like what is used in delicious and wordpress, I have coded it as a new parameter "style=blog" to the %TAGME directive. This way I was free to implement things as I wanted, without disturbing the existing code. As I cannot seem to upload things currently here, I have put the code temporarily at my repository http://hg.colas.nahaboo.net/twiki-colas/TagMePlugin/ and I have put it in place in my test wiki at http://wiki.koalaz.net/TWiki/TagMePlugin#blogstyle with screenshots. (I have also renamed my previous changes prefix/suffix into header/footer on advice from Sven, and incorporated Carlo's fix above). I tried to:

  • not to make the voting feature too confusing
  • restrict tagging to wiki account owners
  • have the normal view mode as simple as possible
  • have the "edit tags" frame able to do all the normal operations from one place
  • be able to untag tags put by others, to ease refactoring
  • work with caches
  • only use rectangles for input text (the current pull down menu of the default UI is the thing that makes it unusable for normal users: they think it is a text entry field)
  • do not use pulldown or scrolling lists
  • have "bundles" to group tags
  • confine my changes only in the "style=blog" code, so that other styles can be implemented
