Allow Sectional Editing At TWiki.org

Some topics at TWiki.org get rather lengthy, and it is tedious to scroll to the bottom in the edit field or find a passage somewhere higher up when one wants to edit existing text.

Using an appropriate template for CommentPlugin, we could insert appropriate sectioning commands to allow the section that was inserted with the comment plugin to be then edited individually, if SectionalEditPlugin was enabled. This would give more of the wikipedia editing experience, where you can edit small sections individually, rather than having to find them in the one large text area.

Looks like a reasonable request. After TWiki upgrade to 4.1

Rafael added his name as Committed Develper but no date.

I added todays date

In reality it is not a feature proposal. But OK to use the process because it is a community thing.

I however raise one concern.

To my best knowledge Sectional Edit Plugin does not work with 4.2.2 and Wysiwyg. Unless I am wrong something needs to be fixed first then.

I put my name in the CommittedDeveloper field so it appear in the search for Feature Requests (that was before I added a search for request without developers).

I do have a working version of the SectionalEditPlugin and EditContrib on a TWiki 4.2.0 install. But I haven't tested it with Wysiwyg. I have not release it because I was hoping that someone implements a cleaner alternative (right now, the plugin basically duplicates core code).

Right now I have a little too much on my plate. I could release what I have so the plugin and contrib works on TWiki 4.2.x, but I cannot commit to make sectional edit work with WysiwygPlugin. I think that all the pieces are there to make the integration work, but just don't have the time.

Maybe send what you have to Thomas Weigert. Thomas has been communicating on bugs web lately with Crawford about how the two work together.

What about Micheal DAums EditChapterPlugin? Maybe you should have a look at this one as well.

-- CarloSchulz - 18 Aug 2008

I would also love to see sectional editing on twiki.org.

-- MartinSeibert - 20 Aug 2008

I so not see any development on this. We cannot enable sectional editing with existing plugins because they do not work with Wysiwyg as far as I know.

Unless I see some proposal how to progress I will park this to another good time.

-- KennethLavrsen - 28 Sep 2008

I am setting this proposal to parked until owner is found and spec is defined.

A good sectional edit solution should go into the TWiki distribution IMHO. It needs to work transparently (comparable to Mediawiki) and work with WYSIWYG editor.
