This tag extension provides a way to add a single-line text input box to a page that will append the contents in a log-like fashion.
Adding a LogEntry box
To add a LogEntry box to a page, place a <logentry /> tag to the page. The tag can be placed anywhere on the page, however it's recommended that it be placed at the top.
Appending a log page
LogEntry follows a simple format in the way that it appends to a page. Entries are grouped by month/day, and entries are list items which include (automatically) the time of entry and user who entered the text. Each day becomes a section using the format == section name == which is viewed as a header.
LogEntry does not parse the entire page - it finds the first section (a line that begins with an = sign) and evaluates if that section is for today or not, then either adds an entry to the section or creates a new section.
