Posting from $AuthorLog
To get the timestamp and headline.

I wonder whether people will choose
To post from edit or from the forms. Edits end up where the author inserts the cursor, form replies at bottom or at top. Oh, wait, you posted from the $AuthorLog page. Please see my note at bottom.
Just gives people another option
I like the way it automatically creates a page for a new day. But that's just me. YMMV.
Post to $today

Starting a new day. But it's (a) still night now. Dawn soon. Rained hard again. Now we need to sow crimson clover and rye and perhaps vetch on the mounds which are finally moist enough. Try it with a rake. Poke around, sow a handful, rake, tamp.
Trebol y centeno.

- I really miss the title form input. It makes it easier to separate into discrete chunks of info. It's use can be optional.

- But now that i see it, perhaps it's not necessary. The time stamp is enough.
And if i want a heading...

- !!!!Or rather here.
- 03:26 by andres
- !!!!Actually, it doesn't. Why?
- 03:29 by andres
- dl, dt, dd. ok then.
- 03:31 by andres
- So how do we do an H*?

- Maybe if it's on the second line?

- Hey Andres, you are up early. Spring is finally coming here in London - 20c on the weekend.
This edit is from the "edit page" window and my username has automatically appeared in the Author field. We got some nice comments from some Meatball members (see my log) - later... Uh, I see after saving that it is not time stamped - you get that only by using the comment box...nor is the author of the edit identified but is problably captured by Recent Changes.

- Hi Andres, I was just out for a walk - went by the Library where they have MS explorer P Cs? and I am making this entry from there.

- Oh! there is also a very big blank space at the top of the page - so much that at firs I thought there was nothing on the page at all.

- We develop first for the mozilla browsers, (Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox), because they are the the most widely used browsers that follow the spec. Then, tweak for Opera, which is even more compliant, but a bit less forgiving of coding errors, an then when everything works, we start to add css hacks for IE. Within IE, IE 6? behaves differently from 5.5 and from 5 and from 5.2 mac, so they all need hacks that target specific browser versions. That's why this process can take so long, and why you can only see this page display (almost) properly in Moz/NS right now.

- Auto creating a new page is great! I love it. I was mumbling about how to name everything so it's easy for authors to get around

- Well, you could put $Wikilog in the Group Header and $Commentchrono in the Group Footer. The first posts to the top of today's page (and creates a new page if needed); the second posts to the bottom of the current page. But it might be confusing to post on one page and get taken somewhere else, which is why I put it only on the $AuthorLog page.

- Thanks! Now it's time to sleep. tomorrow is an early day. Tomorrow night we can get this finished.
- 22:24 by andres
- That's odd.
- 22:25 by andres
- why is it inserting the edit somewhere before the end of the text?

- It writes new posts above
$Commentchronoand got confused by finding the one embedded in the entry for 21:59. This is a pathalogical case which won't normally occur. One hopes.
