New Vote/Unvote/Mention interface shortcuts

#1

Post by Daemon »

So you know we have the custom BBCode for voting/unvoting. I've added 3 new gimmicky tools, that each work the same way:
  • Press the trigger character key: @ for Mention, + for vote, * for unvote.
  • Press the first (one or more) letter of the name of the person you're looking for.
  • Select with the mouse or keys the name from a list that pops right where you were typing. If it's just one press Enter directly.
  • The script replaces what you were typing (like @rad) with what it's set to: [mention]radwulf[/mention], which after posting looks like this: @radwulf
  • The user that was mentioned/voted/unvoted receives a notification. These can be disabled easily from the Notifications/Settings panel.
@d > @Daemon
+d > vote Daemon
*d > unvote Daemon

I'm not so sure about the trigger keys. I tried @, # and $ and they may work too, but more often than not i'd just be tempted to use @ accidentally. So please suggest some different combinations if you can think of any.

Thanks.

How about + for voting and - for unvoting? @Daemon

- is used a lot, for bullet points, for compound words, it would be annoying.

Added quote handling (it makes the tags look and act like they should both in text box and preview/final post, but it doesn't trigger notifications).
