Those of you who have signatures and/or those who were around on the CB at the time will know that something has happened to the signature system on the PM. Well, its true its been enhanced. There are now seperate ways for handling node templates and signatures.

Hopefully Signatures and Node Templates explains the new stuff in User Settings sufficiently that y'all can figure it out. Have fun. :-)

PS: Comments and suggestion for improvements, especially to the documentation is welcome.

    I'd appreciate an example of a node template - I'm not to clear on what it can do to enhance my PM existence.

    You spend twenty years learning the spell that makes nude virgins appear in your bedroom, and then you're so poisoned by quicksilver fumes and half-blind from reading old grimoires that you can't remember what happens next.

      He means a template to be placed in the textfield where you compose a new node. Since your node is posted as HTML, you might set your template to include an empty paragraph block (<p> \n </p>) to get you started.

      90% of every Perl application is already written.

      On the ground that a picture is worth a thousand words, here are my current settings.

      The node template part:

        <!--
        <p><em></em></p>
        <code></code>
        <i></i>
        <b></b>
        &#91; &#93; 
        -->
        <p>
        </p>
        <code>
        </code>
        <p>
        </p>
        <br />
        

      And the signature part: (Note that the div tags are automatically provided by PM.)

        <div class="pmsig">
        <div class="pmsig-108447">

        Hmm, I wonder if everyone uses them just to make notes on syntax, of tags etc.. (thats what yours looks like to me). At the risk of being booed, how about copying other popular forum software, with a bunch a buttons for 'insert code tags', 'insert update line', 'insert ..' etc? (A vertical column next to the input field, maybe..)
