One of the upcoming challenges for the task management app will be data entry. I don’t know about you, but the prospect of spending hours pecking text into text boxes and clicking “OK” buttons fills me with dread. So I’m going to implement an idea I had about dual-channel rapid input as an experiment.
First I need to set up a new template and a new .js file to load stuff with. New Files:
Right now, I have created a basic auto-expanding text field in
page-text-entry.php. What I want to do next is process the textinput into glorious boxes. However, it just occurred to me that a plain-old textarea doesn’t support rich text, which is important for my ultimate plan of formatting-on-the-fly. I’m looking at Rich Text Editors now, and MarkItUp, which is built on top of jQuery and looks like it will serve my needs. I suppose I could also use TinyMCE, which is already loaded as part of WordPress and learn how to control that.
But that’s enough for tonight. Tomorrow I probably have to get back to regular old project management and do a full sweep of what’s on my plate. There’s quite a bit of “optional” stuff that I have let linger too long.
