Description Thomas 2007-01-10 16:33:05 UTC
I wish for a hook to modify raw access to article data. This may be helpful to
prevent automatic content grabbing by bots for example.
Comment 1 Leon Weber 2007-01-10 16:37:42 UTC
Where should that hook be placed? What do you want to do with it/what parameter
should it pass?
Comment 2 Thomas 2007-01-10 17:01:26 UTC
I want to replace text or textparts. Or better I hope to implement the following:

if ( !userIsLoggedin && !userIsBot ) {

addHook("rawEdit", "methodX");


methodX(string rawData) {

return "you are a bad robot";
Comment 3 Rob Church 2007-01-10 17:29:41 UTC
Do we not have a generic action handler override hook? If not, do we want one?
If so, then implement that, rather than this. :)
Comment 4 Leon Weber 2007-01-11 14:55:03 UTC
So I fixed that one (r19117), as I couldn't see that someone's going to write
Rob's super hook :)
