The textivate text types: Public - Shareable - Private - MySite

Some information about the 4 different text types available to textivate users. In a nutshell they work as follows:

  • Public = accessible by all and searchable via the textivate browser.
  • Shareable = shareable via url or embed code. NOT searchable via the textivate browser.
  • Private = only accessible by the text contributor, when logged in, via the "My online texts" browser.
  • MySite = only accessible when embedded on the site specified by the contributor.

The exercises below give a bit more information about the text types.

(The text used for the exercises below is a public text.)

Two types of gap-fill (cloze)

A new button has been added to the textivate front page / editor screen: "Extra gap-fill" (see image below):

This allows you to create an extra gap-fill exercise (funnily enough) based on your own gaps, in addition to the automatically generated one. If you click this button you are presented with a screen on which you can toggle gapped words simply by clicking them.
