FS#635 Customize Numbers in Ordered Lists
When using DokuWiki as a tool for Software development, especially if you consider writing Use Cases with it, there's a definite need to customize the numbering of the ordered lists. Otherwise you won't be able to make Use Case Extensions refer exactly to the Main Pattern Steps they refer to.
**Main Success Scenario**
1. Do a thingamabob.
2. Sprinkle a nifty
3. Smack a Tingletangle
2a. Nifty not found:
2a1. Diddle a puffy --> Use Case Abort
2b. Sprinkle service not available:
2b1. Display Warning to the user
2b2. Initiate idle timer
2b2a. Run out of time:
Diddle a puffy --> Use Case Abort
2b3. User inputs waggadoodoo
2b4. continue step 3.
So you'll need to let a new list start with a specific number, at a specific level, to customize the level formats (1., 1a., 1a1., … as opposed to the default 1., I., a., …), omit certain numbers etc.
This is (partly?) possible with the BBCode plugin (http://wiki.splitbrain.org/plugin:bbcode).
This is a great wiki and comes closest to what I am looking for - creating structured documents in a shared environment. Having the ability to use legal numbering would be a huge plus though. We'd like to use the wiki to store policy documents, which need numbering sequences like 188.8.131.52 etc.
The BBCode plugin adds some flexibility and goes part of the way, but being able to number several levels further down would be fantastic.
Found a way to change this. In the March 6th version (and maybe prior) there is a style sheet, design.css.
Look for the style for ol ol (that is the second ordered list). You can also change ol ol ol and ol ol ol ol if you want.
It is currently set to Roman, and i changed it to 'decimal' and it meets my needs much more.
