Add template_hook near media_title

Reported by: Michael Müller Owned by:

It would be nice if we could add a template_hook in the user_pages/media.html template file. This would enable plugins to display content near the "media_title".

At the moment there is an "Edit" and "Delete" button below the media, placed right of the media_title (when logged in). On my MediaGoblin instance I have added a media_titleinfo template_hook. This is used to display a publicly visible micropayment button for each media. Here is a screenshot of what and where i mean. There are some other use cases as well: consider somebody would like to add a button besides the standard "Edit" and "Delete" button: "Report this media", "View in Fullscreen" or Social Media sharing buttons for example.

The sidebar gets quite crowded at the moment, because the user_pages/media.html template has only the media_sideinfo template_hook as a possibility to put additional information. IMO the media_title line would be a fitting additional place for certain information as well.

I would also enjoy a media page template_hook so I could add plugin code on media pages without having to stuff it into the sidebar.

Egads, sorry this took so long. This seems like a useful patch; I wonder if it still aligns in the right place. I'm happy to merge it as long as someone can test putting something in that place and ensuring that it renders correctly. I think we might have made some changes in CSS organization since this time and that might mean that things don't quite render in that place anymore...?

As long as someone can verify testing that things fit there, I'm happy to merge.

As suspected, there were some intermediate changes that prevented the patch from being applicable. I've updated it to fit in current master code.

Subject: [PATCH] Add media_titleinfo template hook

This patch is based on work by cmichi to add a template hook near the 
media title section of the page. I rearranged the code in the original
patch to match the current media.html page.

The above attachment illustrates the layout of the media_titleinto template hook space, below the media title and above the media description.

This looks easy to merge but should happen after 0.9.0 is out.
