Bug Description

A user interface geared towards selecting existing resources needs to be added to the question creation forms. The current mechanism of using the links as a basis is cumbersome and non-obvious to an end-user.

Discussed in meeting 31/01/09: Remove the current title/description boxes from the resource input boxes and get them during request for resource-type-detection. Reduces the number of boxes down to 1 per resource.

Discuss later options of auto-suggesting resources based on the question content/tags, by querying the resource database and also possibly external search engine.

So far so good: Recently reworked to use a single input for each resource, to hold the links.

This actually feels far more intuitive: Copy uris from the address bar into the input and the system will handle the rest on submission (i.e. the code determines whether the link is already in the system and if not it will connect to the resource, grab the title and icon and add it before hooking it up to the question).

We still need to look at the auto-suggestion/tagging bit, but the first part is much better.
