Item7141: Control over where to add the form tag in comment PROMPT template

By default, the CommentPlugin automatically adds the form start tag, form end tag and additional hidden input fields to the comment PROMPT template.

This can be turned of with %COMMENT{ noform="on" }%. However, the hidden input fields are still added to the end. This makes it impossible to define a comment PROMPT template with two forms.

I have a need to add two forms to a PROMPT template:

  1. Comment form (using CommentPlugin)
  2. Notify authors form (using NotifyAuthorsPlugin)

This small enhancement makes it possible to add two or more HTML forms:

The new %COMMENTFORMSTART% and %COMMENTFORMEND% gives one control over where form tags and hidden input templates are added:

  • %COMMENTFORMSTART% - HTML form start tag
  • %COMMENTFORMEND% - hidden input fields and HTML form end tag

If either of these two variables are present in a comment PROMPT template, the form tag is not added automatically.


<!-- comment form start tag: -->
<textarea %DISABLED% rows="%rows|5%" cols="%cols|80%" name="comment" class="twikiTextarea"></textarea>
<input %DISABLED% type="submit" value="%button|Add comment%" class="twikiButton" />
<!-- hidden input fields and end form tag: -->
<!-- second form with notify authors button: -->
