[geeklog-devel] Autotags help?

Speaking of new autotag features,

 I have always wanted to control what autotags a user can use in a post
(comment, story, forum post, etc..). I have created autotags (mainly from
the autotags plugin) for all sorts of things and I have about 30 to 40
different ones in use. Most of them I don't really want a normal user to use
or even know about.

I haven't really thought of what the best way to actually do this but I
thought I would throw the idea out there.

Now that Geeklog 1.6.1 is out, here's a tiny little feature idea for 1.6.2:

With the increasing amount of autotags provided by Geeklog plugins, it's
becoming increasingly difficult to tell what they're actually doing. So
it would be nice if the plugin could provide some help text along with
the autotag's name.

Simple idea: Let the plugin provide a short text and display that as an
HTML title attribute.

For backward compatibility, that information would have to be provided
in the form array('description' => 'autotag'). That's ugly but easily
fixed by array_flip. Something like

    if ($op == 'tagname' ) {
        return array_flip(array('staticpage' => 'Link to a static page',
                                'staticpage_content' => 'Embed content
of a static page')
    } else ...

would then be rendered as, say,

    <span title="Link to a static page">[staticpage:]</span>

Of course, there is only limited space available in a title attribute.
So maybe the plugin should provide a URL to the documentation instead?
Other ideas?

bye, Dirk
