Instructions

Install:

1) Download and extract the archive.
2) Create a directory called "jot" in your [MODx Directory]/assets/snippets directory
3) FTP or copy the files into [MODx Directory]/assets/snippets/jot
4) Create a new snippet in the manager called "Jot" and copy/paste the contents of jot.snippet.txt into the code field.

Update:

1) Download and extract the archive.
2) Copy the files into [MODx Directory]/assets/snippets/jot (overwrite)
3) Update the "Jot" snippet in the manager and copy/paste the contents of jot.snippet.txt into the code field.


Snippet call example:

[!Jot? &customfields=name,email &subscribe=1 &pagination=10!]

Known problems:

I expect some issues with the db-installer (triggers on first run) on different systems. If you get an error telling you some tables alreayd exist, comment out line 189 in jot.inc.php:


$this->_provider->FirstRun($this->_config["path"]);


Updates

added parameters:

  • &badwords - comma delimited list of words not allowed in post
    best practise is to create a chunk with bad words seperated by a comma and call Jot like &badwords=<span class="modxtag">{<!-- -->{MyBadwordsChunk}<!-- -->}</span> to allow central administration of your badwords list. Use the &bw parameter to specify the required action on detection.

  • &bw - 0 | 1 | 2
    when a word specified by &badwords is detected:
    0 = do nothing
    1 = do not publish the comment (default)
    2 = reject the comment

  • other changes:
    - minor template changes (chunk.form.inc.html)
