Meet the Functions!

While working with a few bugs and features, finally after quite a bit of struggle with the code, I kind of felt that a brief introduction to the functions that I am dealing with would be good to be documented. So, here is it – Our EtherEditorPad.php  file at a glance!


__construct (): Creates a new pad. Parameters:  $id, $epid, $groupId, $pageTitle,  $baseRevision, are passed.

getEpClient (): Returns an EtherpadLiteClient from the current $wgEtherPadConfig values.

newFromOldPadId (): Returns a new pad with the same text as the old pad. Parameters: string $padId the ID for the old pad, User $username the user who will be administrator are passed. Calls newFromId () from within, and newFromDB() as well- returns EtherEditorPad.

newFromId (): Returns the pad with specified ID, or false if there is no such pad.

newFromDB (): Returns a new instance of EtherEditorPad built from a database result obtained by doing a select with the provided conditions on the pads table. If no pad matches the conditions and the conditions cannot be artifically met, false will be returned.
