Description Hans Voss 2005-08-24 14:00:43 UTC
I use a Wiki (MW1.5rc1) to store knowledge and as a documentation tool.
I like for some pages to show (automatic) heading/section numbering and (most)
other pages to not show heading numbers. So just setting the
UserPreferences.Misc->Auto-number headings to on is not a real good option.

Would it be possible to include some 'directive/pragma' onto the page (like
__NOTOC__ etc) that would turn-on autonumber for just this page (if possible
with an offset maybe?).
Something like:
__HEADINGNUMBERS__  for entire page
{{HEADINGNUMBER}} and {{HEADINGNUMBER|from=5}} for individual headers.

Comment 2 Hans Voss 2005-10-25 18:51:08 UTC
If have created a patch for this to the MW 1.5.0 code myself. Modificatons to
three source (.php) files are required
In Parser.php, on line 2456 in the function formatHeadings, just below the line
that says:

$doNumberHeadings = $this->mOptions->getNumberHeadings();

add the following code:

		if (! $doNumberHeadings )
			$doNumberHeadingsObj =& MagicWord::get( MAG_NUMBERHEADINGS );
			if ($doNumberHeadingsObj->matchAndRemove ( $text ) )
				$doNumberHeadings = 1;

In the list of defines for the keywords, as the last define (below line 57) add
the following code:

define('MAG_NUMBERHEADINGS',            44);

The number 44 is the next in the sequence. If the MediaWiki coders decide to
implement a new MagicWord this number could become invalid and needs to be updated.

In Language.php the actual keyword needs to be defined. In the list of magic
words definitions (search for __TOC__ to find it. Just below line 196 or there
abouts add the following code:

	MAG_NUMBERHEADINGS       => array( 0,    '__NUMBERHEADINGS__'     ),
