In Zwiki 0.9.8 the internal links in pages do not work.

eg The following

[0] this should link to

[0] Here

But the formatting is being completly ignored and the characters are being printed out.

This should take you to foonote 2 [2] . Footnote [3]?

Simon Michael <>, 2002/03/16 23:38 GMT (via mail):
Yes, I don't know why this is. Zwiki uses [] to define arbitrary page names but it ignores links containing only digits like this one, so structured text should be doing it's thing here. Could this be related to the the recent zope fixes in this area (cf zope 2.5.1 release notes) ?

After we get this working as expected, it would be nice to find a better accomodation between zwiki and structured text, since internal links like [smith91] are useful. Maybe zwiki could wiki-link it only if there is no matching stx footnote ?


simon, 2002/03/19 07:35 GMT (via web):
Ok zwiki has been suppressing the footnote links. We can do as above but it will mean more dancing around stx.

simon, 2002/03/19 08:18 GMT (via web):
Ok, [] now links to a stx footnote if present, otherwise forms a wiki link. In 0.9.9.

unknown, 2005/04/17 (via web):
When my footnotes are formatted as follows:


  What's up [1].


  .. [1]

with a space before the footnote details (in order to distinguish between the header "FOOTNOTES" and the text within the "FOOTNOTES" section), ZWiki does not recognize [1] as a footnote.

[2] Footnote 2

.. [3]? Footnote 3 (indented--why?)

[1] this is footnote 1.

stx extension -- Mon, 18 Apr 2005 13:29:14 -0700 reply
Because the document did not contain a footnote [1], if you put [1] in your document, it is not recognized as an internal link. The two dots preceeding the footnote must be flush left. One could expand it to allow spaces in front. In STX, indentation denotes a sub-paragraph. I think this extension is reasonable, but it an extension of the original syntax.

The only active work on extending/improving stx is here: and my stx rewrite already accomodates your request . Is that what you wanted?

A matter of proper documentation --EmmaLaurijssens, Thu, 06 Apr 2006 09:20:14 -0700 reply
Footnotes work as long as you don't indent them. Footnotes should not be indented anyway. Typographically, they belong to the bottom of the page and they're all equal.

On a Zwiki page, footnotes belong to the end of the page section, in this case: the main text, or each comment [4]

[4] As demonstrated here[5]

[5] or here.

STX doesn't support indented footnotes. "Text enclosed in brackets which is preceded by the start of a line, two periods and a space is treated as a named link." --
