Disabled by Default.

Heya guys, I'm working on a new plugin that uses a markitup textarea on the index, which is not possible without editing markitup files. Fortunately enough I knew how to enable use of the MarkItUp on the Index. But now I'm curious to know, why it was disabled from being used on the index, list and message pages in the first place. I figured it was to keep from being shown unintentionally but with having to call it with the class, that shouldnt be an issue.

If anyone can throw some insight my way I would greatly appreciate it, don't want to make a plugin vulnerable to hackers and if having markitup on these pages does so, I will find a new method for what I need.

It's simple: as there were no plugins using it on index/message/list, we disabled it for smaller footprint and less traffic. But it that harms some plugins, this limitation will be removed.
May the Source be with you!

Ahhhh ok, Thanks for the quick reply!

I just wanted to keep installation of my plugin as uninvasive as possible so I didnt want the users having to backup and overwrite original markitup files to install it. It's not a huge deal or anything to do so, but it definately makes it easier just dragging and dropping into the plugins folder and being done.

As for removing it, that's entirely up to you guys. It's your baby, I only make stuff for it. :-D

I just wanted to make sure it wasn't a security issue before I put a beta out later tonight. :-)
