ExplicitNumberingPlugin

Example image Use the ##., ##.. etc. notation to insert outline numbering sequences (1, 1.1, 2, 2.1) in topic's text. Also support numbered headings.

Introduction

Use the ##., ##.. etc. notation to insert outline numbering sequences (1, 1.1, 2, 2.1) in topic's text.

Use ---#, ---##, etc., to generate numbered headings.

Use ##5., ##., ##. to start a numbering sequence at 5

Syntax Rules

Numbered sequences

  • The default outline numbering sequence uses the notation ##... (with 1-6 dots). The notation is replaced anywhere in the topic. The level number corresponding to the number of dots increases with each use. Each time a level is used, all higher levels are reset to 0.
  • Named numbering sequences can be used with the notation ##name#... for sequence name. Named sequences have independent numbering.
  • The numbering of a sequence can be initialized or re-initialized by adding a number n into the tag. For example, ##name#2... resets numbering sequence name to 2. The sequence is initialized from the indicated level on.
    • As a concession to backwards compatibility, 0 re-initializes the sequence at all levels. This comes in handy when using a sequence within headers that are also used in a %TOC%. In that case, start the first heading using something like ---+ Chapter ##0. Introduction. You can then safely use the number notation in headings.
  • The rendering of the numbering sequence can be turned into an letter-labeled list by appending a lowercase letter to the notation: ##...a

Numbered headings

  • When the + character in headings is replaced by #, the headings are numbered. Heading numbers are derived from the unnamed sequence and can, therefore, be affected by the syntax above.
    • Tip: Avoid unnamed sequences when using numbered headings.

General comments

  • Numbering count is maintained throughout a single topic. Included topics are considered part of the topic and are numbered in sequence with the including topic.
  • The maximum number of levels is 6, and using levels higher than maximum implies the last level.
  • Non-consecutive increasing levels generate 0 for the skipped levels.
  • Sequence numbering always starts at level 1. A missing first level will result in a 0 to indicate the skipped level.
  • Non-numbered headers do not affect the numbering of numbered headings.
  • The "alpha" sequence can be changed by plugin setttings.

Examples

If you have the plugin installed, the Rendered and Expected columns should be identical. If you do not have the plugin installed, the Rendered column will be the same as the Source column.

ExplicitNumberingPlugin Global Settings

Plugin settings are stored as preferences settings. To retrieve a preference setting write it as a TWiki Macro: %<plugin>_ <setting>%, i.e. %EXPLICITNUMBERINGPLUGIN_SHORTDESCRIPTION%

Note: This plugin does not obtain preference settings from this topic. Settings should be entered in the TWikiPreferences or Web Preferences topic. The following settings can be used.

  • Bold font the numbering sequence. If this setting is enabled, the numbers are rendered in a bold font.
      * #Set EXPLICITNUMBERINGPLUGIN_BOLD = 1
  • Alternate collating sequence for letter headings. This is a commma-separated list of "letters" used in alpha headings. They should be entered as lower-case letters. The plugin will convert to upper-case as needed. The example below shows the default sequence, a reversed sequence, and a Greek letter sequence. The plugin will "wrap" back to the beginning of the sequence if it is exceeded.
      * #Set EXPLICITNUMBERINGPLUGIN_ALPHASEQ = a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o,p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z
      * #Set EXPLICITNUMBERINGPLUGIN_ALPHASEQ = z,y,x,w,v,u,t,s,r,q,p,o,n,m,l,k,j,i,h,g,f,e,d,c,b,a
      * #Set EXPLICITNUMBERINGPLUGIN_ALPHASEQ = &#945;,&#946;,&#947;,&#948;,&#949;,&#950;,&#951;,&#952;,&#953;,&#954;,&#955;,&#956;
  • Debug plugin: (See output in data/debug.txt) This plugin provides minimal debugging information
      * #Set EXPLICITNUMBERINGPLUGIN_DEBUG = 1

Plugin Installation Instructions

You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server where TWiki is running.

Like many other TWiki extensions, this module is shipped with a fully automatic installer script written using the BuildContrib.

  • If you have TWiki 4.2 or later, you can install from the configure interface (Go to Plugins->Find More Extensions)
  • If you have any problems, then you can still install manually from the command-line:
    1. Download one of the .zip or .tgz archives
    2. Unpack the archive in the root directory of your TWiki installation.
    3. Run the installer script ( perl <module>_installer )
    4. Run configure and enable the module, if it is a plugin.
    5. Repeat for any missing dependencies.
  • If you are still having problems, then instead of running the installer script:
    1. Make sure that the file permissions allow the webserver user to access all files.
    2. Check in any installed files that have existing ,v files in your existing install (take care not to lock the files when you check in)
    3. Manually edit LocalSite.cfg to set any configuration variables.
