Description James Paige 2008-03-18 21:19:37 UTC
Mediawiki provides no way to make an entire section indented. For example it would be nice if:

blah blah blah

therefore furthermore, blah blah

and also blah blah blah

foo bar baz

* apples
* puppies
* kittens

=Top level again=

Would render then entire section under the header indented, something sort of like:

blah blah blah

   therefore furthermore, blah blah

      and also blah blah blah

   foo bar baz

   * apples
   * puppies
   * kittens

You could use <blockquote> to work around, but you have to do some funky CSS tweaks to get it looking like the rest of the article (e.g. increase font size). See [[User talk:MER-C/Sandbox#Some section]].

Thanks for the <blockquote> workaround suggestion. That does create the formatting I want... it is a shame that it makes the wiki markup so much less readable :(
Comment 3 James Paige 2008-03-19 21:36:00 UTC
I implemented an extension called IndentSections which provides the functionality that I am looking for

Rather than attempting to support : before = I just made it auto-nest-and-indent all headers.

Thanks again MER-C, this would have been a much bigger pain to implement had I not known about <blockquote> behavior.
