Book on a Stick updated to v0.4

Book on a Stick has been updated to v0.4 with more changes than you can shake a stick at:


  1. Added buttons to the editor for creating unusual lists on request by a user. The buttons are not enabled by default, but can be enabled by uncommenting them in the source code.
  2. Added the FullSpecialTagThis function to be used for HTML list buttons in the editor so their line height will match that of wiki lists.
  3. Added the ListTagThis function on special request so that unusual list item styles can be made into editor buttons.
  4. Commented out the part of the code that caused the wiki to add extra slashes to certain parts of its code during wiki self-clean on save. (This causes the wiki to no longer be proper XHTML, but until that part of the code is fixed, I’m leaving it commented out. You can undo my comment marks to re-enable it if you like.)
  5. Fixed the code for the Table pop-up in the editor so extra slashes won’t be added when the wiki does self-repair.
  6. Fixed the DivTagThis function so that the Left, Center, Right, and Justify buttons in the editor will now create code with proper closing tags.
  7. Fixed the FullTagThis function so that the Strike, Superscript. Subscript, and Blockquote buttons in the editor will now create code with proper closing tags.
  8. Reorganized the center row of buttons in the editor.
  9. Replaced the Fixed menu and banner option with Fixed banner on the Special::Options page. This prevents the menu from becoming inaccessible if it becomes too long to fit on the screen.
  10. Updated the Special::Advanced page, replacing Edit the custom script run once when this wiki is being loaded with Edit the bootscript – add some custom JavaScript to be executed when the wiki is being loaded.
