Submitted by ahlearn on Thursday, 10 April, 2014 - 03:07
Hi all, I'm new to this community page. I would like to upload some of my jedit macros I wrote. How can I do that? I cannot find any related link on the files section.

Is there a way to report/delete the spam entries in the forums?

how to Clear the clipboard ??
Submitted by DoctorSea on Monday, 14 May, 2012 - 02:29
I am trying to write a macro that clears the clipboard. This is most important to me.
I tried

a = "";

and a variety of other textArea methods(viewable online) but nothing I can find helps. What am I missing ?
How does one clear the clipboard ? Any ideas anyone? Please?

I'm using jEdit for ages now die about almost everything.

Recently I got the task to configure syslog-ng but I could not find anything for jEdit which would help me. Does anybody here know of any stuff which could be usefull? Edit modes? Macros?

Many thanks in advance.
how do I get notified when commets/replies are added to a topic I started or commented in?
Submitted by plevintampabay on Monday, 24 October, 2011 - 13:03
I've looked at the notify settings for my account but the description there sounds like I'll be notified of all new posts. I only want to be notified about posts in topics I have posted to. Is that possible?

It seems that jEdit experiences a revival.

I am happy because I depend on jEdit utterly and totally. jDiff plugin was broken for a long time (sometimes it hangs sometimes jEdit is very slow after using jEdit), but the new version of jDiff fixes that.

Thank you!!
Man, I'm sure glad jEdit is still around

Years ago I used jEdit and loved it. Over time, I drifted away from it thinking I could be just as productive in vim (then TextMate on my Mac) then other editors like KomodoEdit etc. The bottom line is jEdit really rocks and I'm back to using it as my full time editor on mac and widows. The fact that it's so powerful with the plugins and works cross OS is a huge plus. Just a big thanks to whoever is still involved in this project.
How do I list all the macros I have uploaded?
Submitted by turtlecove on Tuesday, 22 March, 2011 - 06:39
I cannot find any way to list the macros I have uploaded. Even searching by my username only shows one of them. If I search for each separately I can locate them. Very cumbersome. I must be missing something simple?
Some information about plugins more used
Submitted by tonimenen on Monday, 14 February, 2011 - 21:43
Hello everybody,

I think it could be very interesting to have the chance to sort the plugins by the number of downloads of each plugin, in that way it is possible to know which are the best pluggins to use by the community.
Clean up the old projects?
Submitted by patchworker on Friday, 19 November, 2010 - 08:38

I just deleted spam in the projects-list, the project-name was "Aaaaaa".

All the others are from 2003 ... 2004, so they're already done (like Sidekick) or not done.

Is it OK, when I clean up this list?

Updating Account Information
Submitted by nyambol on Thursday, 4 March, 2010 - 13:58

Two items. First and most important, I had to create a new site identity in order to log in, after I reset the theme of my old account to one of the items in the 'theme's option list. That 'theme' was completely broken, a set of template tags that hooked into nothing. So there was no longer any way for me to do anything on the site, including reset the theme, once logged in. I did email someone identified as being in charge of community development, but nothing happened. This is really poor on two fronts. No one to contact when there are problems, and (IMO) worse, a half-assed deployment of Drupal that includes elements that are not implemented. It seems that it's caveat emptor if you are fiddling around with your account settings.

The second item is that I tried to upload an 'avatar' picture, and that feature seems broken, too. At least, I uploaded a picture (74x85 png) and after saving settings, the avatar setting reverted to 'no file chosen.'

C'mon guys. I know everybody has a real job, but it's just common courtesy and sense to disable functions that you don't want to mess around with. Purge the themes list or disable it altogether. It's not like it would hurt my feelings if I was stuck with the default site look. A broken "feature" is worse than no feature at all.

I get an error stating that the server is unreachable or unavailable while attempting to download an edit mode file for Tcl scripts.

Any updates to this?

Mark all forum message as read
Submitted by neerolyte on Thursday, 22 January, 2009 - 23:45
Is there anyway to mark all the messages in the forum as read, without having to read them all?

Most other forums have this and it's really useful if you just want to browse a forum as apposed to looking for something specific.
Forum Search Results are Dificult to understand

When doing a search in the forums, the title of the thread would be very helpful, even if the post that returns the result is not the main article in the thread.
Updating account information

Is it possible to update my account information (in particular,
changing the email address)? I can click on "my account" to display it, but I don't see any link which would allow me to change it.

Why no clean urls?
Submitted by RProgrammer on Wednesday, 22 October, 2008 - 02:14
I'm just curious, why doesn't this site use Drupal 'Clean URLs'?
