Hi Rick Sapir / Tiki for Smarties,

I was just about to add the new custom QuickTag and was flashed about the nearly nonexisting documentation. This is what I found:

  • https://doc.tiki.org/Toolbar
  • https://twbasics.tikiforsmarties.com/Adding-Custom-Buttons

These are the questions that are not answered:

  1. How do I know the name of the available Icons? Do I really have to browse my files on the server "in the ../img/icons/.. directory"? There should really be a dropdown box with the available icons. And there should be an easy way to upload additional ones through the website.
  2. What's a WYSIWYG-Token? Is there a place where the WYSIWYG system is explained? I understand how the wiki-syntax system works - just add markup syntax into the text - but how does WYSIWYG work and how is it saved? Is it basically the same markup just not shown in the editor? If so, how is the definition of these buttons different between WYSIWYG and wiki syntax? As a background for the explanation: I am a Delphi/Pascal programmer.
  3. What do I add in the syntax field? Is that what is added to the text when this button is clicked on? If so, how does it work if you have to incorporate highlighted text, like the bold-button? I guess there is kind of a variable that can be used within the text in this field, right?
  4. What are the types? Where are they explained? What do they do?
  5. What does the dropdown box "Plugin Name" do? Why are the items in this box not sorted (maybe a translation issue - I am using German)?
  6. After all these questions are answered - where should I document the answers for others? is https://doc.tiki.org/Toolbar the right place for them?
