Widget system



  • Hey

    Hope you can help me point me in a direction of some code/documentation.

    I'm thinking of developing a Widget and can't find any information on the context in which a widget lives. The widget I am thinking about developing should show information about the content of the thread/post, so when you are browsing a thread about a specific subject, related articles are shown in a widget.

    The widget of course doesn't make any sense in a context outside a thread.

    And my problem is that I can't find any information about the context in which the widget is operating.

    BR

    Should give you some ideas, the active users widget changes behaviour based on where it is displayed, if its inside a topic it shows the poster in that topic, if its inside a category it shows recent posters in that category etc. widget.area.url gives the url of the page the widget is in.
