Page locking?

I have a feeling Dokuwiki locks the entire article, regardless of whether you're editing a single section or the entire page. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I got the idea that this is the behaviour. — Harishankar 2012/08/22 08:23

Have to test it

Whole page, I think, according to The ManualBrian Lawrence 2012/08/24 02:12


I have edited this page in order to merge the original editing_rules page to the “Editing Policy” section here, as per Eric H.'s suggestion. — V. T. Eric Layton 2012/08/30 14:56

Adenda: Well, for some reason or another, my hour's worth of work is not appearing on the page when I save the edit. I see it in the editor, but not on the article page. *tired* Quitting for now. :( — V. T. Eric Layton 2012/08/30 15:05


The way in which you added that footnote put the parser on the wrong foot :-)
Look at how I fixed that footnote. Powerful syntax.

Back when I used to smoke and drink, I used to pay powerful sin taxes. HA! :-P Humor is a good thing. Yes, footnote syntax very cool. It even shows when you hover over the number. Thanks, Eric. G'night… — V. T. Eric Layton 2012/08/30 19:07

Shouldn't the Style Guide also be signed by its author? Niki Kovacs Tue Sep 4 07:14:48 CEST 2012

Most Slackdocs documentation, if not all, has been written by staff. Personally, I don't care about author attribution on these “rules and regs” type articles. Many of the articles, this one for instance, have numerous contributors. Just my thoughts. :-)V. T. Eric Layton 2012/09/04 10:45

“Follow proper capitalization rules for words in titles and headings.” Aren't we being pedantic? Personally, I find this a little too fussy and unnecessary. A Pain In The Arse, or a Pain in the Arse. — Brian Lawrence 2012/09/08 06:01

Actually, proper capitalization is an important part of any written language, in my opinion, and should be respected. A site with poor examples of writing and proper use of language by the staff members doesn't set much of an example for those utilizing the site, I wouldn't think. By the way, neither of your examples above are properly capitalized were they to be used as titles. Minor words such as “in” and “the” should not be capitalized. I feel we should take pride in how language is used on this site, hence the style guidelines. — V. T. Eric Layton 2012/09/08 16:07

—- I had the same thought about that. Capitalizing every word is typical US-english style. We are trying to not just cater to the US population, remember? I personally think capitalizing every word is ugly. Try capitalizing a whole sentence… it looks awful.
Nevertheless, from the point of view of “unified look and feel” I can understand why you would want all headers capitalized.
