What have I missed while being away from a pad?
This plugin aids to help authors that have been absent from a pad to be able to "quickly" catch up with what's been changed since they were last present.
When an author revisits an old pad they are presented a message saying "Since you were last here there have been XX changes to this pad. Review the changes"
The author is initially presented with a differential snapshot of the changes since they were last present.
If this is not sufficient and the author wants additional information then a link to the timeslider(including their previous position) is available.
- Atomic: Link to timeslider at point author was last present on the pad. Useful for full timeline of events.
- Differential(default): A "diff" view shows a comparison of before/after line-by-line. Useful for a quick snap shot of what has changed from point A to Z but does not include steps on the way through and also does not include who has changed what. For further analysis the Atomic / timeslider view can be used.
The plugin stores the last revision an author was present on a pad in their browser cookies. This means the padId is present in their browser cookies.
