Blosxom moreentries plugin bug fixes

Blosxom Plug-in: moreentries

The moreentries plugin for Blosxom, which gives "prev" and "next" links when an index exceeds a certain number of stories, did not work if the directory pathname contained special characters for regular expressions, such as '+' or '*' or '?'.

Steve Schwarz, steve at, did some good work on moreentries to add multiple prev/next pages, and brought the plugin up to version 0.3.

Version 0.4 (0+4i) solved the special characters bug for moreentries by quoting the regular expression it uses to select postings. It is also safe for Perl's "use warnings" and "use strict".

Version 0.4.1 (0+4.1i) correctly quoted a naked ampersand.

Version 0.4.2 (0+4.2i) added a fix where some installations of didn't give us the expected value of self_url, meaning that prev and next links in categories instead went to the blog top level.

moreentries plugin v0.4.2 (0+4.2i), with documentation.
