    Any possibility in the future(@nick:I know you have your hands full) of a external link toolbar so when a user clicks on an external link you have and option vote, return to site or maybe a try a random link from the site or a random link from the catagory you were viewing initially. Obviosely it should be able to be styled and potentially a ad placed on the toolbar as well.

    Another idea would be the ability to comment straight from the toolbar. Pligg has a similar module but I believe its funtion are cosmetic at this stage and not fully implemented.I'm not sure if it can be used as a starting point because I know the pligg and hotaru systems are completely different.

    You'd probably want users to be able to close the toolbar if they don't want it in the way and potentially a option in the user settings to disable it.

    Hi Baadier,
    It sounds like you're asking for something very similar to the Digg toolbar. If there's interest in a plugin like this I'd be happy to build it. If anyone is interested in this please post what sort of features you would like to see and I can start working on it soon.

    you looking at pretty much the same idea as digg which was my inspiration for the idea:

    logo | Votes | Post Details .............. Bury | Related | Random | Social | Close

    those are pretty much what i needed and potentially and ad in the center space, but that would probably mess around with the site expierience.

    This would be another great reason to use Hotaru CMS. Five stars!

    A digg/pligg type toolbar for Hotaru would be an awesome addition! It looks as though this suggestion will be a huge hit.

    I've started working on this and so far it's coming along nicely. I should have something usable in the next few days.
    hangbowl, Patrick and baadier like this.

    How is this toolbar coming along? Is there anything usable enough to test?

    We've had no update, so we're working on our own version of this plugin. Technically it already works, we just need to figure out how other plugins hook into it, etc. :p

    Great stuff nick, I was wondering what happened to this, do you have a date in mind when It will be ready for release?

    You should know by now not to ask such questions! ;)

    But, this weekend should see Hotaru 1.1.3 released, which will allow us to release Cron and AutoReader immediately after, and our "Social Bar" plugin should follow soon after that. Buckle your seatbelt! :cool:

    Wow Nick. I was thinking of upgrading to 1.1.2 this weekend. I'll defer that and wait for the 1.1.3 release. Oh, it's already Saturday night our time! :)
