    • I want to use this snippet for a guestbook. But I miss a feature:
      On some sites we have problems with spam guestbook entries. So I need an option to hide new entries by default. A webuser (or group) should be able to activate or delete this entries.

      I missed this in usercomments and replix too. I hope that I don’t have to write my own guestbook snippet.

      Is it possible to add this feature in jot??
      • That would be a nice feature. In my own custom guestbook (not ready enough for release) I have an option similar to that. In my case the new message is checked agains a "badwords" filter (a chunk with bad words in my case). If any of the bad words is found in the message then the message is hidden automatically and can be unhidden by an admin. By tweaking the badwords chunk it was quite easy for me to catch all spam posts I get (about 2-3 a day) and all legit posts go through undisturbed.

          Good thing you mention this.. Jot is already prepared for this feature and I will add this in the next version.

          @Mitch: nice idea.. I will add this to my list!

          • So does this version have

            &makefolder 0 | 1 (optional)
            set to 1 to automatically convert the parent document to a folder.
            default: 0

            Also is it database enabled yet?

            These where really the only 2 options or replix that where must have for me because I don’t want comments stored under the main content forcing the main centent to be a folder.
            • Jot stores it all in the database, so makefolder is not needed. smiley

              • Mitch, could you share your badwords list?

                I think "http" should be considered a badword - the majority of spam I get contains this.

                Another approach would be a "trusted" field for users - so approved members could reply instantly.
                  No, I don't know what OpenGeek's saying half the time either.

                    • is there a way to add this to all blog posts without actually having to put the snippet in each post? I want my authors to only worry about content. not snippets needing to be added.
