Hello everybody

and thanx 4 ur effort in providing JoomlaCOmment

I wonder if there is a way to add a limited counter. i.e. when the visitor wants to comment he would see a counter that counts down the allowed number of characters to type


Thanx in advance..

Hey magus, sorry about the delay.

(1) Download this JS file and save it to your modern/ template directory. Open it and edit the two var entries on first two lines to (a) match the backend comment limit number and (b) to match your language.
functions.js

(2) Open the modern index.html file and search for this codeblock:
            <div>
                <label for='tcomment'>{_MESSAGE}:</label>
                <textarea name='tcomment' id='tcomment' cols='{formareacols}' tabindex="5" rows='10'></textarea>
            </div>
...and replace it with this codeblock:
            <div>
                <script type="text/javascript" src="{template_live_site}/functions.js"><!----></script>
                <span style='float:left;'>
                    <label for='tcomment'>{_MESSAGE}:</label>
                    <br/>
                    (<span id="jcpt_ticker"><!----></span>)
                </span>
                <script type="text/javascript">document.getElementById('jcpt_ticker').innerHTML=_JCPT_MSG_MAX_NUM+' '+_JCPT_MSG_MAX_TXT;</script>
                <textarea name='tcomment' id='tcomment' cols='{formareacols}' tabindex="5" rows='10' onkeydown="jcpt_count(this.form.tcomment,this.form.jcpt_ticker);" onkeyup="jcpt_count(this.form.tcomment,this.form.jcpt_ticker);"></textarea>
            </div>

Tested on 4.0 RC1 as OK :)

Or if it's easier just take the whole modern template with these modifications I just made to test this. Extract it to "modern" and over-write or you can also extract it to a new folder under templates e.g. "modern-tick".

modern_tick.zip
