Description Andrew Conkling 2006-01-07 16:43:07 UTC
When browsing a wiki page, it is often unclear which section an edit link will
edit.  The edit link seems to be a bit high.  For example, edit links for
===third-level headings===, which don't have a horizontal line underneath them,
could easily be mistaken for editing the section preceding them. mentions changing the position
of the edit link to the bottom of the section.  I don't necessarily like that
idea, but I will agree that for a new user (which I was, once) it can be
confusing until you get used to it.

Section edit link are always on the same line as the heading. I'm 
not sure how much clearer it could get?

(In reply to comment #1)
Here's some improvement ideas:

1. display the edit link on the same baseline as the section heading (like
Andrew said)

2. use title=section-heading in the hyperlink instead of title=page-title

Also, there are more serious edit-link display bugs (bug 1629, bug 2703)
