Issue status update for http://drupal.org/node/18828

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    base system
 Category:     feature requests
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Anonymous
 Reported by:  jbond
 Updated by:   TDobes
 Status:       patch

The patch no longer applied, so I updated it.  I also tested it with:
* Quicktags
* TinyMCE
* Areatags (mentioned earlier by jbond)
It worked with all three... +1 for applying Dries' cleaner patch.
jbond: Your module's browser detection code does not work on my server.
 You seem to expect a $HTTP_USER_AGENT global variable, which does not
exist... I think you should instead be using
$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'].  Perhaps your code was created with the
assumption that "register_globals" is turned on in php.ini?  That
setting is off by default, so I wouldn't rely on it.

This patch moves the textarea hook for 'pre' between the title and the
textarea. This makes it easier for simply textarea enhancements like
quicktags to add a toolbar just above the textarea. It doesn't appear
to have any effect on the fckeditor or htmlarea modules. It doesn't
introduce any new hooks.

Guess that is a patch.

+1 From me.
Any module that adds something, will want to add it after the title. I
really cannot think of any case where aditional content should sit
above the title, but I can think of loads of cases where content needs
to sit between the title and textarea.

Indeed, nice and simple patch! +1 from me either..

If this patch gets accepted I'll drop this into contrib. It's similar
to quicktags but *I* like it better. ;-)

+1... I'm pretty sure the current positioning was accidental anyway...
it was always meant to go directly above the textarea.

All people who use this, seem to agree. Any chance this gets in soon?

Ber: while all people seem to agree, it is unclear how many people
tested/reviewed this patch.  One ought to be careful.  For example, the
patch introduces a new variable, $form_element, without properly
initializing it ...
How about the attached patch?  It is slightly cleaner, slightly faster
and properly initializes all variables.  I haven't tested it with the
WYSIWYG editors but maybe someone else (Julian?) can?  Will commit
after it has been tested.

Anyone to test this?
