    one f my goals is to have things running straight "out of the box" when someone doesn’t need the customizing smiley
    About the chunks, good point I will update the install.txt smiley
    Also the 1.0 non beta version will be here end of the weekend.
    Well, that’s cool ofcourse, but the colors (or templates) of Jot wont always fit in the style people are using wink
    In addition I’d like to suggest to add a little ’howto’ on blocking the comments when using Ditto to display the latest posts (might as well just fit in more with the Ditto release, I just haven’t figured out how to do it).

      Put the jot call into the template of the page displaying the article and not in the content wink

      • It would be nice to be able to have some custom processors for custom fields. For instance, I have a "website" field. Some people will include the "http://", some won’t. I’d like to be able to insert a processor that formats URLs properly, without tampering with your existing code.

          I think that such an request is a little out of scope for Jot specific.  Your problem is solved by inputting the [+comment.custom.yourUrlField+]  into a homemade snippet that does the processing.

          Another way is to add a custom modifier to PHx.
          Jot makes use of PHx (available as standalone plugin or if not installed only used when a jot template is rendered) there is an easy way of doing what you want. PHx is a seperate project from Jot and the custom modifiers are available as of PHx 1.4.0.

            Yes, I realized this shortly after I submitted that post, but had to run off before I could comment on it here. Thanks.
            • bS` , How can I modify the post sort order ? tongue ... by default it displays new first, but I want it to display the new posts at the end.

              Another thing, I want to place the posting form at the end of last post, how I can do it?

              Thanks.

                    When reinstalling take these steps:

                    1. Clear the jot directory
                    2. Delete the Jot snippet from the resource manager
                    2. Delete the *_jot_* tables from the modx database
                    3. Copy the content of rc1 to /assets/snippets/jot
                    4. Create a new snippet called Jot and copy the content of jot.snippet.txt into the code field.
                    5. Reload the page with the Jot call.

                    if you set &debug to 1 can you confirm that the jot.html -- placeholder values are filled and that the jot.placeholder value is set to 1?

                    I will not rest before you can run Jot.. lol grin

                    Debug shows placeholders set to 1 and jot.html.* displays the output.
                    Going to reinstall jot and see if that fixes both issues.

                      I too want to sort by ascending. I added &sortby=`createdon:a` to the snippet call. it does nothing. I looked through your source to find the "default" setting for sortby, but I could not find it. Also, &validate won’t work for me either. I tried to change the default (from the wiki), content:You forgot to enter a comment to &validate=`content:Please enter a comment` , but it still gives the default error message, and none of the custom validations even display. What am I doing wrong?
