notacouch– have you seen LG Data Matrix, which has that functionality built in: http://leevigraham.com/cms-customisation/expressionengine/lg-data-matrix/
Nope. Haven’t seen that before. That modification I did was back in March/April 08 at the latest.
Thanks for that. Hrm. Maybe I should replace the MT fields with this while the site is still in development, err scratch that already used the MT for a lot of entries. Ah well. Next time though.
