Well, since the nodes get locked for editing while an editor does changes to it, it shouldn't be a big deal to use the same locking mechanism during a frontpaging and vice versa.

That is, as soon as the frontpage button is clicked, lock it for editing, and if the author is on an editing page, disable frontpaging (with a notification of why, so the would-be frontpager takes an extra look before committing fp on the nex text).

There might of course be some timing issues still where both hit the submit buttons at the same time, but it can either be secured by double-checking the lock, or ignored as a very minor risk. Up to the implementor, really. :)


You have moved into a dark place.
It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
